Default coolant reroute/Turbo water lines question

I plan to re route my coolant set up.
The plan is this-
Water leaves the bottome of the rad to the water pump.
Out the back of the head to a thermostat- coolant line run under the intake manifold to the top of the rad.

1. Will that coolant set up work?
If not, why?

2. I want to run one of the turbo water lines from the block(by the dip stick.
and the next, weld a AN bung to the piece of aluminum piping the lower rad hose will connect to going into the water pump.

So does this sound like it will work fine and efficiently?

It will be easy to do as the engine is out of the car.

Thanks everyone,
Jeff

90-94 and some 95s have a coolant and oil port on the exhaust side of the block.

I dont see anything wrong with the routing. Im assuming that you got rid of the water neck since you plant to put a fitting on pre-wp, if that's not the case then use the water neck fitting. For some reason I think that you'll have low flow that way, due to a pressure difference issue, but I might just be over-looking at it.

The water neck will be a custom set up to accomodate this set.

It is the BEGI water neck right now, but that may change.

I do plan to use the BEGI Tstat housing on the back of the block though..
