BC AC Bulkhead to Compressor Hose Fit

Does anyone have a pic or description of how they ran their bulkhead to compressor hose?

I think this would be much easier if you have a carb vs. EFI. I have EFI and the upper intake plenum is taking up a lot of the hose space. The way I have the hose run in the picture, you can't bend the hose to get on the compressor connection.

Also, is it better to orient the compressor connections to the side instead of straight up? The hose length seems too short to run around the upper intake when the compressor is on the side.

Roll the compressor to the side. Put the hose from the firewall on top of the valve cover to the compressor. You may have to remove the upper to get it in place. Put it as far to the drivers side as possible. If you leave the compressor as it is in your picture the hood will hit the hoses unless you have a big body lift.

Thanks Chuck. I will rotate the compressor. I think you're right. I will probably have to take the upper intake off to thread the hose under it and above the valve cover.

Rotating the Compresor 90 degrees will fix all sort of fitment issues.
