Default Will this drain burn oil?

My turbo is draining through a short -10 AN line into a +/-135 degree elbow tapped into the oil-pan. I tapped the return higher than the standard location because i removed the AC compressor.

Because of the angle in the -10AN head and the angle in the return bung, the line dips about 1/2". Will there be enough positive head here to gravity feed correctly or am I looking at a case of oil stagnation in the dip?

I don't really want to get a straight bung and cut a longer piece of hose but will do so if this setup will create a real oil burn issue.

I don't see it causing an issue...
