IRLZ44 transistor, and a mica insulator/mounting kit the insulator and mounting is the same as the idle transistor. also a 10k resisotr and 1n4002 diode but you can get those at radioshack.

looks like this:


I'm just going to JB Weld the sucker.

I believe it's actually a 1/2" compression fitting sleeve, which is threaded for 3/8"

I could just JB weld that **** to the stock piping and then actually weld the bung to my IC piping, no big deal.

Where did you build your boost control circuit al?

I need the transistor/mica as well.
