Default Coolant lines

I am working on getting the coolant lines for the turbo hooked up. The an fittings I bought are too big to take the normal route from the turbo and go down for the outboard fitting. I am wondering if there is any problem in routing the outboard coolant fitting upward and over the intake then follow the FM route. I think it would be fine because the line is pressurized and doesn't create a high point in the system.

Any other coolant line ideas?

doesn't really matter how you want to rout the lines, or which one you connect to which port off the motor. Its pressurized.I'd try to route it so that the lines are as short as possible though. Less **** dangling in the engine bay

dangly **** does suck. The inboard line is routed to the lower connection and the outboard line is routed above the intake to the upper connection. Can't start cuz my map sensor is nonresponsive. Hopefully I can find one this weekend :(
