Has anyone relocated their N75 Valve?

Wondering if anyone has relocated their N75 valve for easier access and installation? Has it affected performance of the wastegate? I'm thinking about mounting mine in the engine bay.

No experience doing it but logically I think it needs to be as close as possible with shortest hoses from turbo to n75 and from n75 to wastegate to avoid latency which could cause overboost issues or at least it seems that possibility would be there. (just an opinion perhaps someone who has actually done it could chime in)

Exactly why it is so close, needs to be able to actuate quickly. I don’t think relocating it would harm the engine but the wiring harness will only allow it to be moved so far

Got it. I'll probably leave it where it is then. I don't need anymore issues. N75 is reading 0% and I've taken this thing off 3 times now.
