Blow off valve question

Hi there had a question if it's ok to mount a blow off valve with a 90 degree elbow opposed to as straight into the piping after my intercooler? Reason I ask is my old vavle failed and I replaced it with a larger one and I'm having fitment issues because it's a lot taller. Thanks.

Just a heads up if anyone in the future runs into this issue other than me, car runs great! Getting 11 pounds of boost and running the blowoff at a 90 degree angle caused no issues at all.

What BOV did you go with and do you have any video or sounds of it?

I have the Pro Flo open style valve by Procharger works great. Don't have a video but I can put one up later, makes a loud whoosh sound. Love it!

Its less efficient then a diverter valve. You would probably hold more boost with a diverter valve.

I have owned a lot of turbo / supercharged cars. Its just more efficient to divert the air back. Just my opinion. If you're happy thats what matters
