Default front sway bar options?

So, with the latest round of mods, over the last winter, I ended up without a front sway bar. Basically the cold side piping to and from the air/air intercooler takes up the same space as the sway bar would. So are there options for a different sway bar and routing? I think I've heard of some people running a stiffer springrate and and no sway bar, is that really an option? If so what springs would be good ones to go with?
I do plan on doing road course eventually, probably not autocross, but for now it's hitting my goal at the standing mile.

I've never heard of a way to relocate the swaybar, and I can't imagine your car handles well without a front bar. Is there a way to relocate the tubes?

It actually handles surprisingly well, considering (better than stock). I think the steeda sports and koni yellow are keeping the outside tire planted. My biggest problem is power oversteer, and there's not much helping that.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the purpose of sway bars is to keep the inside tires down so that if the outside tire hops, there is still traction?
