Striaght fitting verus elbow fitting?

My 87 190 w/351 eng has a striaght fitting for the hoses coming from the frt of the engine to each exhaust manifold. Anyone know if replacing that with a 90 degree elbow fitting, which would make running replacement hoses much simpler it would seem, if that would cause any issues as to flow to the manifolds etc.? Thanks for any thoughts----

There should be no problem as long as the elbow if formed so that it is not a restriction.

As long as the flow rate isn't extreme, using a rt angle shouldn't be a problem and if you can make smooth hose bends instead of rt angle, it won't kink. If you need, 45 degree fittings should be easy enough to find, too.
