Question A/C Lines relocation?

My A/C lines are seriously squishing my turbo hose from turbo to intercooler. Is there a easy way of bending that A/C tube down or relocating it?

I guess they used metal lines because of the high pressures of the 134A being in liquid form. I suppose using rubber hose lines is out of the question.

Any ideas of what to do here? I don't think the turbo hose should be squished that bad...since it seems very restrictive.

I thought it was illegal to let the freon out. I thought you had to let a certified shop release your system. Oh well, its not like we can repair the earths damage.
