When a guy who use to install stoves suggested coming out of the stove into a 90 to get past the hopper, than up about 30" were the damper would go. Another 90 after that and exiting the wall. Which way do guys usually hook them up.

My bad I miss read tithe first post and thought it w about a power vent system.
Samhill is on the money - never use a barometric damper with a direct vent system. Direct vent systems must be sealed downstream from the blower. However, you should still continue thinking about installing at least one manometers.
