Enhanced turkey question

So my local supermarket had turkeys on sale for 99 cents/pound. I got one but the only problem is that it was enhanced with an 8% solution for moisture and tenderness. I wanted to brine it for enhanced flavor deep inside the meat but didn't know how to go about it as it already has the salt solution in it. Any suggestions?

    I dont usually brine an enhanced bird, but know others do for adding flavor without a problem.  There was a big discussion last Thanksgiving about this.

    I have brined many enhanced turkeys without a problem and with great results. Seems like the only people who complain are the ones very sensitive to salt, but we have never noticed that!

    Thanks for the responses. I did find a brine with half the amount of salt to compensate for the factory inject. I just want to get flavor in there and don't care about moisture as I feel the egg and the factory inject will take care of moisture.
