At the extreme, you could route the lines up over the inner fender, then forward and come at the pump from the side.
This would require custom lines, and a "can" that had the return line pointed out the side (like from a chevelle or 2nd gen Camaro - these cars had the box in front of the cross member, nearly right next to the pump). '67 through '69 Camaro's all had the steering box behind the cross member, right next to the exhaust, and the lines were routed under the engine/exhaust.
Even running stock manifolds on mine, with the lines in the stock location, they bake over time and crack. I've gone to replacing them every 5 years or so.
But, I realy think the only routing choice you have with big tube or snakey equal length headers is the over-the-fender route. Or give up the P.S. idea all together.
