Default Where to inject smoke oil on headered saito

I'm installing a smoke system on my P6-E Hawk and was wandering what your thoughts would be on an injection location. I plan on wrapping the header close to the motor with 1/8th brass tubing for preheating. The header is about 5" long and was wondering if the temps might not be high enough at the muffler because of the length and if I inject on the collar of the header at the motor if there would be a problem with back pressure?

Thanks

Anywhere on this ring that makes it easy for you to get the line on and off

If you are using a 90 degree adapter can you drill and tap that??

Thanks for the reply, Minn. I was also totally thinking this way also for great heat!That corigated header will totaly vapour the oil, but, you think that I may hit a pressure issue at the pipe?

On the contrary. That will be the area of lowest pressure.
