Looks like a very clean job. I'd suggest machining some sort of taper or lip into the outlet to aid clamping of your I/C hose, though.

I had a spare T-3 compressor housing and I wanted to see if I could machine it so that it would work with my stock intercooler. It was an older flanged type. I put it on the mill at work and cut the flange off, and machined it round. It may be a little short, but if I can not use it as is, I can machine an alumimium extension and have it welded on.

I can put a lip on the extension if I have to make one. I could not put a lip on the housing at the time I machined it, as that would have required a forming tool,which we did not have. If it is long enough,as is, I can have a bead of weld put on the edge, and blend it into a lip.
