Default Turbo too close to power steering lines

Ok.. the turbo is very close to the power steering lines.... I ziptied them so that know they are about half an inch apart..... also I wrapped the lines in aluminum foil to make it sort of a heat shield

Also, the turbine is touching the chasis.. well... barely, but it does touch when I crank the engine.... I was told to put a piece of silicone in between the turbo and the chasis... any other ideas?

Silicone would probably melt if your talking about the turbine half of the turbo. The compressor half would probably be OK. As stated, pics would help.

Max is referring to the compressor. Its not as bad as it sounds. Just lightly hits the chassis while cranking and the power steering lines run a little too close to the compressor. Other then that its not touching. Its an old Minnam kit and his car is a 2001 so fitment was not perfect. Some small fab work to the up-pipe can fix this problem.

My bad... I meant the compressor ...
Guess I'll get some silicone to wrap the power steering lines...

Thanks!
