OK i have no idea if this is the right term or not but i have been looking at pic's of engine bays and alot of the engines have their turbos in a much more accessible place, its like they are raised up a foot or so?? What is the reason for this, what would i need to do this and how hard is it?

Because the adaptor is made for a flange for a wastegate too. makes it simple than getting a big custom manifold which costs like $1400, that is why and also maybe fitting issues cause turbo is bigger, it doesn't really affect flow because the long tubular header style manifolds have better flow than stock manifold when the pipes on it are longer than stock.

I think that if you moved the stock turbo up a foot it would be clearly over the hood... Just thought I'd add that...

I'm with him...but that would provide for a mean looking Mk3.
hehehe... be sucking in Birds if it was at that hieght :) and hell I think the reason the turbos are moved is just as above to clear the external wastegate and make it easier to install all the oil lines and coolant lines, aight then peace

you should run pipes through your fender wall on the passenger side and install the turbo where the passenger mirror usually goes... mmm..... dont drive with your windows down your ears will bleed...
