Hood won't close w/ Boss manifold + NX kit

I installed boss manifold, it has nitrous express wet kit, the n20/fuel lines is what doesn't allow hood to close.

Has anyone experienced this problem? if so, what did you do?

That is one haggard install you have done bud. Looks like it's hitting the purge solenoid. No no no dirty dirty

Need a trip to the hardware store to get some angled fittings and clean up that install, then all will be good(and will look good too!).

That install looks like you were desperate to install it and were crunched for time. Did someone call you out for a race and you decided to slap a nitrous kit on real quick? Try running your lines along factory fuel/vacuum lines and make it look factory. Same with your electrical. Find the best place for your solenoids then do your wiring and lines and if you need longer line go buy it. I don't even want to know how your activation/power/purge switches look.
