Default BOV Location Question W/FMIC..

Ive searched but found no definate answer... and mabye there isnt one. My question is, is there any advantage to having the bov closer to the throttle body, as opposed to the turbo? I have this fmic setup that I have seen alot of people running and I have only seen people run the piping in the direction I have it running. I am tempted to switch the piping that connects to the turbo and throttle body. The only actual change it would make, other than the direction of boost, would be the bov location. My reason for this is so the "cold side" pipe doesnt sit right above the turbo. LMK if you have any input! Thanks!!
-Mabye this should be in another section (noob?). I posted it here because on my specific situation is on a 2.0L WRX.

That is an option, and i have also added a cobb heatshield. But if i can just switch the piping without the location of the bov being a problem, that would be a better option.. You didnt answer my question.

We have experimented with it being in both places and found it to work a little better at the throttle body connection. In the end we chose this for packaging reasons.
