Just a general question,

With water feeds to and from a turbo, where does the water come from, is there a specific tank it comes from or is it drawn from elsewhere, the same for the return? And why is water beneficial for a turbo?

Cheers

You T-pipe a pipe from the OEM system - the GT series turbo's and others are advised to be water cooled as a method of cooling the turbo - they aren't as oil dependant as the journal bearing turbos.

you can also use thin pipe that goes from head to water tank, cut it, connect water to turbo, and return it back to water tank.

Ah I see makes sense. So the water would then get fed to the turbo via pressure from the system?
