Default oil return question

hey guys, Just finishing up my winter project. I have a 92 si with the y8, The kid that had it before me had a cheap hose rigged for the returne line that had kinked. So today was trying to use a steal breaded hose today. and found from the bottom of turbo drain to were the tap port in the pan is not much of a slope. There is only like 1/2in at most in hight difference, Leaving me with more straight than fall.
Now i have searched around some time, You can find very few pics and the articles normally just say tap the pan at the top. There is not much saying how much fall you need so My question is How much fall do you need in return line, and if i need more How low in the pan can i tap for more fall

Perhaps the turbo could be clocked a bit to help make the line more direct? It's hard to say without being able to see it of course.

If you get earl fittings you could try a 45 degree fitting on the turbo to the pan
