We have two round inlets in the fb door about 6" in diameter. The flow is great. If your dimensions are similar, I'd say your stack would be fine in this neighborhood. It's been awhile since we cut and measured everything. We used a calculator to get everything to the right size (except the fb--we made ours a little bigger than recommended--which is okay since we didn't go smaller).

So far, I'm liking yours much more than mine but the link of our semi finished build is in my sig if you want to look. I included a lot of the data in the thread if it'll help close any gaps for you.
Thanks for the compliments. I did follow ur build. Its pretty sweet.

The chamber is 26" x 5'. The stack is 5". It draws real well. With the stack flapper wide open the doors don't leak smoke.
Its Si-intistic, Jack!
