it would depend if there is enough side clearance to drill and tap into the crankcase.
I have a custom K16 installation on my 2.4L CIS and I have it installed high enough to gravity drain back to the left chain case. Never had a problem with it. I don't think there is adequate drop using the stock mounting location and the larger framesize turbo.
I enter the chain case with a fabricated flange/tube, no room for fancy fittings.
