Stock sr20 t25 question

I bought a Garrett t25 turbo off of a stock sr20det Nissan motor for my turbo project (95 Plymouth Neon SOHC MTX). The only way I can mount this turbo is upside down, i.e. wastegate up/oil feed on bottom/oil return on top, if that makes any sense. Can I run the turbo this way and not choke the turbo with oil and or blow some seals? I'm wondering if the oil return is on top that maybe the oil may not want to drain down correctly, considering it has to make a 180 degree turn and go down to the oil pan... Thanks in advance.

post up some pics of the turbo, but im almost sure you can just "clock" the turbo center section to the exhaust as you need it. most turbos are that way.

These are the only pics I have at the moment. I'm at work right now, but I'll be able to get some more tomorrow afternoon if these pics don't fit the bill. Also, "clocking" the turbo can get pretty hairy with the snap ring on these turbos from what I've found on Google.

i think you can do it. it doesnt look too bad. a better close up of the center section and the exhaust side would tell more.
