    does anyone know if there is some benefit to the placement of your calipers.

    not so much on out 14ffswaps, but i see so many cars that have them in different spots, both on top, faceing away pointing towards one another,45* from center.

    i cant see any benefit beside them being out of the way for something behind the tire.

    any one know for SURE?

    It doesn't matter. The clamping force is the same, no matter how they're oriented. The most likely reason to have them in different locations is just for clearance with suspension parts.
