Crabman - I see you used the fitting the tank came with. I had to use a 90* elbow directly off the pump because of a clearance issue. Will that in any way affect the operation/longevity of my pump?

My pump was very LOUD before the mod and was mounted to the wall under the kitchen sink cabinet with the bedroom being on the other side of the wall. Much quieter now and the accumulator stops the short cycling.
This is what it looked like before the mod:
