Installation was a huge pain. It's a heat-soak nightmare and I've had nothing but trouble trying to tune it without an IMRC. I do have it tuned, but only by having that IMRC wired in and not connected to the IM. I do feel it flows much better, and I like the delivery of the water/meth I set up.
At any rate, it's on now and I'll work around the issues. I have some 1/8" sheet silicone to try and make a gasket/spacer to keep down the heat. I also have a bunch of reflective heat tape to help.
