The only thing I can think of is just less clutter, like you said. I think the further away the hot side is from the collector and manifold the more lag (minimal though). It's just hard to say because of some many different turbo housings. I am using the T3 flange with a .82 ar, so it should see some quick pressure from exhaust (hopefully).
I would say most of those guys running that way are spinning 6k plus with high stalls and or manuals. I'm going to be running a near stock stall so I need that boost quick. Although, it might not hurt at all. Once I get it running, I might play around and build some different headers.
I'll post a pic of the manifolds Im using with the turbos.
