Couple of fitment problems need help with..

Ok, so trying to button everything up and am running into a couple things I think are questionable..

#1 For all the A/C users -- the line from the firewall to the condensor is VERY close to the turbo and header, and has to be run under to even make it there. Will this be an issue?

#2 Power steering lines are close (almost touching) the crossover pipe.. what to do with this? Heat tape?

#3 Lower radiator hose is very close to crossover as well. It does not touch the actual pipe, it touches the t-bolt but it's still extremely close. Again.. what to do about this?

1. wrap it
2. remove braket and reroute hose in a better spot.
3. trim hose at radiator to pull it closer to rad and away from exhaust.

It is a B&G kit. And I don't think cutting the rad. hose is going to yield any benefit..

if its the stock radiator hose, you can get at least another inch or so of clearance by cutting it.

Where do I go about cutting it? Also, do you have pics of that custom A/C line? I guess I'll buy some more wrap and do the crossover as well, but I'm not doing the headers as I will get them coated eventually.
