Re: smoke system

You may have a snag.

In order to get good smoke, it is necessary to have heat. That's what makes the oil go to smoke.

You might try Slimline. They have a line of mufflers specificly made to generate smoke. You could also try modifying any muffler that you use on your engine.

What's important with the Slimline is that there is a pre-heater which warms up the oil in the hot exhuast flow prior to injection at the hottest point. So if you could make a mod to an existing muffler to wrap your smoke oil delivey tube around the muffler to ensure that it gets hot and then inject it near the exhaust manifold, that might work.
