Intercooler Piping clearance

I am in the middle of my intercooler install, and I have the hot and cold side pipes in but I want to know if there is anything I need to avoid touching? right now the cold side is tight against the coolant reservoir hose and the hot side is really close to the power steering line, will this cause a problem? the hot side pipe still has the insulation on it if that makes a difference. Thanks

if its touching the hoses it can cause them to rub through either the pipe or the power steering hose.

if there no way to avoid it, wrap the power steering and the pipe where they touch, so that it wont wear through either

do you think a larger diameter rubber hose would work for wrapping it?
