I got in contact with the AUS reseller and they've got some of the 3.375 inchers :)
I'm so happy lol
I know it'll probly meet my power requirements but how much would a core like this put out?

Not exactly sure, but I'm guessing well over 10kW... .

I'm guessing that the size of the core may make it difficult to use.

What material type are you looking at? I've used the P type. Any ferrite should be good. Look at core losses vs operating frequency for the frequency you'd like to use.

The company has the P and J (I think) type. P has no coat and the J is coated but has a permability of 5500u. The P is about 2500u so I'm going to order that since n channel used near that before.

The p type has some nice characteristics. It actually increases efficiency until you get the temp over 120C. I've never even actually been able to heat one up that hot!
