Default Turbo inlet ideas

Anybody got an idea on how to have my intake air hose closer to the turbo inlet so I can fit a bigger radiator in front of the inlet tube ?

Outside of a complete Turbo Remounting closer to the right hand frame rail
and the turbo mount located there.

Can you offset the radiator to the other side?

My son being the great welder he is, would take the radiator and remove a chunk out of it and Aluminum weld it back up. He would then make a beautiful 90 degree elbow out of that nice aluminum used for turbo pipe. He's a fabricator..Just saying.
