    well, that's a hole different story.
    it might need to get rebuilt... sounds like its leaking oil out the seals or something.

    The water line is optional, but it's usually a good idea to use it on turbo's designed to use it

    was there recently water in the lines or have you never even used them before? sounds like it could be left over water burning off.

    I have to agree with B here. If the manufacturer put it there it is usually there for a valid reason. My suggestion, if you do not want to run it would be to plug the water return port and run low boost.
