and why would it be hotter? turbo is going to get hot no matter where you mount it. There are plenty of mid mount turbos out there and they work fine
Aswell as rear mounts mounted near the diff. Quite hot right next to the exhaust.

Why do they bother wrapping turbos to help keep them cool if people are gonna mount them in a place like that.../

generally fitted to protect other parts in the engine bay from overeating/melting.

Im not trying to sound like a dick head, but how do you cool a turbo, if it's mounted near the diff? And would adverse weather affect it?
