I don't run a drip tank. No problems here

Looking at my setup which is based on a 3.2 with turbo exhaust, scavenger pump, etc., the difference in height between the oil outlet at the torbo and the oil plug is no more than3.5".

Looks to me like the little turbo oil tank will fill with oil every time the engine is turned off and perhaps even reach the turbo itself if parked in an upward incline.
Maybe the more conservative alternative is to run the oil line from the scavenger pump directly into the oil drain.
