for others who might be curious, I've uploaded the pictures:
I don't know how others solve this tricky packaging problem but this is how I did it. 2Bennett originally used a length of 1/4 hose to attach the WGFV. The hose couplers had a very tiny ID. I found that the ability to reach full boost is very sensitive to this plumbing. You can't just plug the valve into the front of the hose like it is supposed to, as it won't fit. I ended up using a short length of 1/4 copper pipe. This provided less restriction and I'm able to reach full 20psi boost with a stock spring and about 5-6 turns on the cap screw.
Sounds like from Steve Eiche's note that the S2 ABY hose would place both the BPV and WGFV in a much better location.
