Only if you run an aftermarket scavenge pump on the turbo oil drain.

If you don't run a pump or rely only on gravity (like most systems do) the drain HAS to be below the turbo, ie base of the block or welded into the oil pan.

exactly whay airwerks said. If your turbo is sitting higher then the valve cover then of course you can drain it back through the valve cover. If your turbo is lower then the valve cover and are relying on gravity to return the oil then you're in big trouble. The turbo wont last long and youll likely be consuming more oil then gas :lol:
