Front radiator mount hose routing?

I am going with radiators mounted in the front section of the car for my LS swap and was going to route the radiator hoses/lines through the original location of the factory oil cooler lines on the 964. However, I began thinking that by doing that the highest point in the cooling system may be at the top of the front fenders versus in the rear where the radiator fill cap would be located.

Does anyone have pictures of how their radiator hose line set up looks like running radiators up front?

I purchased a radiator set up from renegade hybrids, works great and I'm running twin turbos. As for the routing they sell a kit but it runs directly under the car. Looks like junk

I'm using a electric water pump with thick wall rubber hose run through the rockers and up around the wheel wells, i pressurize it with a pump dropped into a 5 gallon bucket. Haven't had any problems with air pockets. You can't see the hoses

My radiator cap is a thermostat mounted unit, and I run a overflow bottle
