Default Turbosmart BOV outlet orientation FMII

FM's instructions state; "Be sure that the outlet on the BOV points down, as it does in both pictures." Except that piece of real estate is occupied by the larger of my fan motors. I would like to point it up. I am venting to atmosphere. All Turbsmarts website had was a picture with it mounted outlet down, no text. I found a cutaway of the valve and could see no operational reason for it to care where the outlet was pointed. Any insight would be appreciated.

Your instincts are correct.

I buy the exact special part number directly from Turbosmart in Sydney every week(I live an hour away).

Any orientation you want.

My spidey senses tell me they put "point it down" to prevent company liability for providing false instructions should something fall into and damage it.
