Thats possible. I did the calculations for AWG10 equivalent, which is the maximun diameter litz wire I've found so far. For larger diameters one has to use several paralleled turns.

The polish guys have a good price and they also sell cores, altough the product documentation for the cores is very basic. Just some pearmibility indications.

Now all this inductor stuff I was wondering if one could do boost with a passive PFC choque. I have this one rated for 15Amps RMS (25Amps peak)
