    you have water source (i know there is another word for it, but its escaping me) and return lines right. I have never setup a water cooled turbo before (hell my first turbo was this weekend on a 92 B16 hatch). I figured the lines would be like they are on an auto trans.

    the water system is a cycle... water in, water out.
    just like you have oil feed, oil drain.

    do you have the water return just open to the air??

    I set up a feed and return for both oil and water. The turbo has two threaded holes one in front and one in back and two (what appears to be) plugged holes one in back and on in front loacted just below the water lines. it is a 14b turbo off of a 91 talon so if anyone is familiar they could shed some light hopefully.

    plugged up the hole by running threads in the hole and making a bolt the fit in, then used a copper washer and no more leak. I finally started up the engine and water is running through all the lines and same with the oil lines. Everythings good.
