Default Hard Power Steering Line off Pump

Just got my turbo kit put on my 93 1.6. It is a greddy manifold with non greddy turbo. Problem I'm having is with the power steering hard pipe right off of the pump. Didnt have the room so I removed the pipe and flipped it around face forward and now its leaking. Havent gotten in there and figured it out yet but was wondering if moving the pipe is common. Here are a couple of pics of the set up........everyone likes pics.!!....Thanks for the advice

I kind of like the way you've arranged things so that the outlet pipework to the intercooler heads downward, but you didn't have to do it like that, you could have taken the pipework forward a bit and then downward (see pic) just behind the radiator, that way you'd have no problems with power steering pipes.
You could look into clocking the compressor housing around so that it points downward, which might work out better for you.
I don't think removing that power steering pipe is all that common tbh, most people design around the existing engine bay parts, not redesign the engine bay to suit the intercooler pipework, but I think you should get in there for a proper look as it may not be too serious, and get a pic of where it's leaking from.
