Default 2008 WRX blouch 18g install

I'm getting ready to put a Blouch 18g xt-r turbo on my 08 WRX, but i have one concern that is holding me back. When i was putting a VF48 on my car, the compressor outlet and hose were rubbing on an electrical connector, i'm guessing it's the secondary air combination valve, it was a very tight fit and i'm afraid the 18g won't fit without some sort of modification.
Has anyone with an 08+ WRX run into the same problem?

Here are some pictures of the connector:

You might get it to fit if you loosen the up pipe to manifold bolts and the support bracket before you try and tighten the turbo down. I'll upload a pic of mine when I had it installed. I have had tgv deletes on since before I had that turbo though.

Why not just do an air pump delete while you have the turbo out? It's the perfect time to do it and will solve your problem!

Definitely delete the air pump if you are swapping turbos!
