turbo oil drain question

i have a sbc 355 with a turbo on it and its mounted very high up on the passenger side its actually right above the passenger side valve cover my question is if it would be ok to route the drain hose into the valve cover the hose would only be about 6 inches long cuz it would be hard to get around everything and down to the pan ... i was thinking about putting a fitting into the valve cover or rigging something into the filler hole of the valve cover... what do u guys think?

The only problem id see would be more pressure on the valve cover if you ever get a clog in the oiling system

as long as the turbo drain is lower than the valve cover it should be ok.

i wasnt talking about in the line off the turbo i was talking about the passages inside the engine block make sure to keep all oil changes current and keep any crud you can out of the engine other wise you will have catastrophic failure not only to your engine but to the turbo to but any way good luck with your project and i hope that everything falls into place for ya
