A good rule of thumb for spray'n'pray chambers:

I still say bury it...especially with the location of your ignitor. Cell-core just isn't good practice with these things. You can do a better job on your next one anyway, right.... :wink:

Home Depot and Lowes both sell 2' sections of pressure rated 3" and 4" PVC, Project pipe or something like that....should be plenty for your chamber. Next time, locate the hole for your ignitor and screws for gaps etc, where there are 2 layers of PVC.

OK good.. :wink: Maybe a little overkill there...but you're getting the idea.
