    First off, the lines will not come from the radiator.
    Usually it's tee'd off of the thermostat "tube" on the back of the block.
    If the turbo is meant to be watercooled, it had better be watercooled.

    so with the water line you run off of the thermo tube and to the turbo and the return line goes where?

    I can't remember exactly how my friend had it (LS-VTEC-T with a little DSM turbo), but I think the return went somewhere farther down the line from the water pump. I can't remember exactly where, nor can I advise you on where to put the return. But I would recommend running the feed from there, yes.
