If you fuck it up a bit different i think you can get 285mm wheel travel with the no jacking system still working.
... it may be bullshit .

260mm is what I should get from my TAG monolever, but have to believe that you get a better quality experience on same quantum of travel from a paralever - because of lack of jacking

Are you in effect saying that the torque arm is the real limiting factor, not the shock setup (vertical vs diagonal?).

It does not look like there is any difference to what type of bevel box you go for as the torque arm mounting on both airhead and oilhead bevel boxes seems the same, see image below

what do you think you need to FU in order to get 285mm?
