I did exactly what you propose, but I cut my hole in the upper right quadrant of the door (near the blade). I think if I was going to do it over, I might put it down at the bottom like you plan to do. I didn’t put in a wye, choosing instead to just make a plexiglass cover to place where the factory port was (my saw is a Delta). The new connection is a huge improvement, but still far from perfect. Bandsaws are tough for DC, I’ve kinda chosen to just live with what I’ve got.
