It's been a few months, so I figure I'll share my non-progress. I haven't touched the car in a few months. It runs very well except I'm still fighting the IMRC delete issues. My solution of physically removing the IMRC but leaving the flag set to "1" (enabled) in the computer eventually threw a code saying the IMRC wasn't functioning, and my tune went to crap again.
To get around that issue, the IMRC is wired/hosed in, just not actually attached to the IM. So far I'm wishing I would have not gone with that Cossie style manifold. Overall though I'm quite happy with the build.
I'm not sure 2013 will result in a built motor at the moment. Instead I'm looking to put money into the house instead of the car.

Fast is relative, and my new Focus isn't and never will be "fast" to me.
I just didn't buy this car for speed.

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.
