Hi,
Can you clarify what is going on? The injector connectors only go on one way (easily, anyway).
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The plug in on top of the motor . The engine smokes real bad when I disconnect
The wiring and plug them different it stop smoking .
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The location is my concern by color of wires
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Could the smoke be from the new engine?
Expert:  Doug replied 2 years ago.
I'm really having a hard time understanding what you are asking.
The injector connectors can't be mixed up without trying really hard. Was the wiring broken off the connector or something and you don't know which pin goes where?
Regarding the smoke, what sort of smoke is it? Gas (burns the eyes), coolant (sweet odor) or oil (blueish, no odor)?
Where is the smoke coming from (tail pipe)?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Gas smell out of the tail white smoke

Thanks, ***** ***** isn't a good sign. Is it a fairly dense white smoke, could you get a photo/video of it?
Was this engine known good before install or "Assumed good"?
