you must not know enough to be making a reply in the forced induction area then......for future reference there are oil cooled turbos and there are oil/water cooled turbos. what im trying to find out is if the water cooled part comes front the radiator lines or if it has to be ONLY water???

yes, most turbos are water and oil cooled. the best place to get the coolant is from the throttle body. just do a bypass by the throttle body. those lines are about the right size for the fitting on the turbo.

Thanks for the info b18vtecrx, it's not so much I don't know about turbos and how they work , I've never actaually installed one or fuxored with them much.

but from what else I've read, sounds like the coolant w/ antifreeze is just fine. how else you gonna get water thru those lines without antifreeze? beside a completely seperate cooling system just for the turbo.
