Default Question about stock Greddy oil return line.

I want to swap this out because it seems to have developed a small leak where it was rubbing up against something. This is the line going from the turbo all the way around to the port on the other side of the 1.6 block.

I just changed the oil about 500 miles ago. Can I swap the line without a ton of oil coming out of one end or the other?

I'm not trying to be cheap, I just would have to order more of the Valvoline High Mileage full synthetic that I'm using because none of the stores carry it around here and I wanted to swap this out this weekend. So, in part I would be wasting oil if I changed it out now. I suppose I could collect it and put it back into the car, but that's kind of a pain too.

And yes, I plan to tap the pan at some point.
