Brakeline routing suggestions

Installed new engine in my s-10 and for the first time I am running headers in this truck. Of course to add a little frustration the engine has angle plug heads so my choices were very limited and I needed a big tube header to let this thing breathe.

Two middle tubes are touching my brake lines off the MC. So obviously I need to re-route them. How bendable are these going to be? Looks like I can bend them towards the firewall and the other one will be easy. I realize the loops are there for any body movement etc. are the loops there for any other reason? Old guy told me today the two lines have to be equal lengths, any truth to that?

There has to be a tidier way to run these lines. Hopefully the picture I attached works but I doubt it

Body movement yes. The coils are for that.
Line length is a farce. No Fact in that myth at all.
Line diameter is another story.
