I think Larry or Kieth two of the mods on this site have a painted intercooler. Both have RR RS so I'm not sure which one has a black intercooler. I doubt any type of paint is going to reduce the cooling efficiency of the stocker or any other.

If all you're doing is lettering you won't suffer any ill effects.

In theory yes, but many people have painted letters and not reported any ill affects.
