I don't see any advantage? I just teflon'ed em and screwed them in till they were secure and didn't leak on my recent build

What are you getting them out of the way of? Is your gauge mounted to you reg or on the body? If its on the reg it'll only go so far before hitting the body and gouging it. Screwing the blow off valve all the way in will only gain a quarter of an inch maybe. I'm not sure of the reasoning and I don't see an advantage, but then again, I don't see why not
