Default Smoke system on Magnum 91 4 stroke

I'm not sure if it will fit, but I would like to install a smoke system on the smaller Aeroworks Edge 46-61 size. I have a Sullivan Skywriter electric smoke system already and want to install it on a Magnum 91 4 stoke. Can this be done? I've had people say yes and no with a 4 stroke. If it can be done, would I mount the tap on the muffler closest to the manifold? I know weight can be an issue, so I bought a smaller smoke tank, 6 oz. I believe. Just enough for a couple minutes of smoke.

It can be done, just mount your smoke system and tank to keep the CG right, If you rap the smoke pipe around the exhaust header to pre heat the oil it will work better. You will have to spend a bit of time adjusting every thing so as not to flood the exhaust with too much oil.

I have used smoke very sucessfully on 91-sized 4-strokes.

Here's a great article on smoke in general:
