I'm getting it ready to go to Adam Millar from MRE.
Adam is going to cut it for a big bore, add a parallel cooling outlet, add a decomp, and re-cut the combustion chamber after I figure out what I need lol...

Since I am using an electric starter the pipe needs to stick out just a bit further then any pipe I have :(
You can see here where they all hit.

My solution is to get a new cone pipe made 8-)
But I don't want them to use my fancy pants electric starter for a template to work around.
When all else fails I turn back to wood working :lol:

It bolts right up and simulates the Electric starter perfectly.
