Need some help on the dos and don'ts of flue piping from boiler to chimney

we are putting in an oil boiler and the flue comes out the back as apposed to the old unit where it came out the top. What we are planning is just to come out the back directly into a 90 and then head up about six feet at about a 50 degree angle until we reach the chimney. So another 90 at the top there to turn into the chimney. Any issues with that? Where along there to put the damper?

It just occurred that there might be rules for rise over run and it might need to come vertical first and then go more gently horizontal until it hits the chimney. I kind of doubt it, but I've learned to ask first when possible

Thanks in advance!

Your plan is acceptable. The barometric damper tee will install between the elbows. Be sure to orient the damper itself so the support brackets are horizontal.
