For oil drain from two turbochargers? No, I don't think it's a good idea. I know some people have had success with this, but we have not.
As low as the K16s sit, how are you going to plumb lines from the bottom of the turbos (or from the 993 or 996 turbo drain cans) under or around the heat exchangers and to the single banjo fitting?
Looking at a car up on the rack right now, it looks as if the oil drain hose would have to snake around the heat exchangers, either forward or back, and then to the drain. Or, down and under the heat exchangers (in harm's way!) and then back up to the drain fitting. No bueno.
Remember, oil should be gravity draining whenever possible. And you have centrifugal forces at work when driving, wanting to push the oil towards the back of the car.
Do you have a 930 scavenge pump? If so, consider trying a layout similar to this.
