I have seals to make it work, question is what kind of restriction the smaller 8mm inlet in the cooler will create, and if this will cause issues?

I'm using 85.5 mm p&c.

Thought it is best to leave the exhaust alone on single port engines, as it already flows too much compared to the intake?

Thanks, seems to be graphite

Is that similar to "salt&pepper" ?

Derby grey for the side panels is correct.
