Heater install kinked gas line?

I installed a heatercraft 3 vent heater in my 02 xstar. On the engine I am having a hard time getting the gas line (see photo) and my new water line to the heater to fit right. With my new water line installed the gas line between both side of engine will only fit if it's a bit kinked. It runs fine, but I'm not loving that its got a slight kink in the line. Is there a flexible gas line solution?

I will include 3 pictures. 1. the kinked line 2. The gas line at the front of the engine as an example of what line I am talking about, only it's the line on the back of the air box area that is kinked 3. The new water line for the heater that is causing the space issue.

If you have enough room, you could get a tube bender and try to bend the metal tube portion to take some of the kink out in the rubber hose.

Tube bender is a good idea, I definitly would not leave it that way, that's trouble waiting to happen...

What PSI is that fuel injection fuel line? I'm having a new one built that will fit, and the gas line he's using is 300 PSI. Is that correct?

That's more than ample. About 6X ample, so you will be in great shape.
