could you build a bracket from intake bolts up to something on the turbo?

It's tough cuz my fuel lines are right there and I'm running tall valve covers I even bought a threads sleeve with heim joint on the ends to adjust but Im having a hard time setting it up so rs not totally in the way and so I don't have to do some ghetto rig to get it to work

we typically figure the routing, mount the turbo firmly and then pipe to it.
