Its a 45 degree fitting but a 90 degree one will fit too. It will need to be angled backwards a bit though.

That why I used stainless steel flex where heat and chaffing can be an issue...
With short length of silicon hose to join...

Silicon hose is good for over 200 degrees, just dont let it rub on anything.
