turbo oil drain to lower valve cover???

After adding a scavenge pump to my turbo set up I am still looking for the best and fairly simple way to get the oil back into the car. Just curious since I ended up mounting the pump in my drivers rear fender well, if I could use the lower valve cover as a drain location. Any other ideas are welcome as well, just trying to keep my lines as short as I can and not have to take the motor back out.
Thanks in advance

This is an option:



This is from a twin turbo, but easily adaptable to single.

Can you describe this setup? Doesn't look like a gravity fed system.

nice setup MyTurbo, I bought the same pump but have a lot less space. I'm still using the CIS and have both pipes running down through that area. I would love to go back into the upper timing chain cover, but now that the motor is back in and everything is together taking it out would be an adventure. Here are some early pic's of my setup. I have made some progress since then but you should get the idea.

Please both of you, post some more pic's both the twin turbo and 3.6 look very nice,
thanks for the responses

I ran my pump from the wheel-well back to the left chain cover. I removed the temperature switch (only present on 1980-83) and used a threaded adapter from BAT.inc . I am now back to draining directly to the sump because I added an AC condenser to the wheel-well and there was no room left for the pump. My goal is to reinstall the pump but run it directly to the oil tank like a 930.

I know Ben (M&K) has gone through two revisons of this when developing his turbo kit. He initally started with a gravity drain to the sump plate, but has since gone to a 930 scavenge pump which then dumps the oil into the divers side lower valve cover and he has said this works very well.
This is the route I also am going to take for my conversion.

I have been pumping mine to the lower valve cover but it is better to pump it to the tank, The chain covers are how most run gravity drain set ups.
