TURBO OIL QUESTION FOR ALL TURBO

Has anyone heard of or actually sealed oil inside a turbo?
I've seen some but was wondering if it could be done with any turbo.

So i'm having drainage issue on a turbo and i was thinking of using a heavy weight oil and sealing the oil inside the turbo. so basically plug the drain and then fill the turbo up with oil and cap the top. i would change the oil in the turbo every time i changed the engine oil

Any thoughts on all that? Thanks

How would the oil cool down if plugged? I would think that it would heat up the oil too much and break it down a whole lot quicker...but I din't know, just me .02 worth...

yea i would agree with that. if the plug is available i would assume that it is for something like drag applications of sled pulling. but i have no clue

I think the oil would cook if it wasn't circulating.

sorry guyz been out of town.
anyways so yes the oil overheating was also my worry.
so i was thinking of using a heavyweight like 50-60w so it would last longer.
its on my motorcycle, just a small garrett gt-15 so its open air cooled and should stay relatively cool but yes the overheating is a concern. i was thinking of trying it and see how the oil does in it enclosed maybe after 500 miles or so. I've read that good synthetic oils burn at 400 degrees F so it is possible. I've tried restricting my line but i have poor drainage which i can't really solve due to height restrictions, so this was my solution.
