Clocking the oil drain on turbo??

Just an unmeditated thought regarding adding turbo to 3.2 (1987 911)...

One of the things I worry about is how low the catch can on the turbo must go, and how high it must be to facilitate gravity drainage.

What are the thoughts about clocking the drain so that it is at the 8 o'clock position, instead of 6 o'clock (the conventional way)?

This would allow much better clearance of the catch can, due to it being higher, plus it would allow a drainage angle more conducive to gravity flow.

Yes, there would be oil sitting below the level of 8 o'clock in the turbo itself, but surely the oil pressure would be pushing the oil up to the 8-position, enough for drainage?

Anyone tried this?
