6.0 degas bottle is in the way

Now that the 12v is in the truck I was planning the plumbing for the intake, right at the air horn the degas bottle sticks out and down about 1" too far so I cannot get my CAC boot on. Has anyone had this problem? Is there another degas bottle that I could use like one for a V10, V8, 7.3l or even another car altogether? or is my motor sitting too far back or too high. there is about 3-4" between the oil pan and cross member and there is about 2" between the end of the block and the fire wall. I tried bending the bracket that holds the degas bottle but that only makes it worse.

That wont work with the Ford Fan Shroud. Look at the 08 Swap and how Steel and Aden made the cold side IC pipe.

I talked with Steel yesterday. It looks like I can use an old catch can type resivoir I have floating around. If it doesn't work then I will just get the one GOS makes.

Does anyone have a diagram of how the coolant flows through a 12V? I have a hose comming off of the rear of the block at I think it is where most have the temp sensor. I would like to keep it because I heard there is a little bit of a problem with the #6 cyl heating up.
