Firebox size is relevant to Cook Chamber size  usually a minimum if 1/3 the cu. of the CC.  Dave's formula will explain that as well as RF plate It goes at the top of the FB to CC opening, you need to leave the same amount of cu. in open on the opposite end as the FB to CC opening.

 

Look over his tutorial , If you need help just post you questions and I sure Dave or someone will be glad to help
