Default Turbo Water Lines HELP

This is a pretty basic question, but i need to make sure I have it right because I'm ordering water lines in about an hour and need to be positive I have the right lengths.

With the begi reroute kit installed, where should i hook up my water feed and return line. Is it this simple, as seen on miata wiki?

I also need to know which one is the feed and which is the return, because the efr is finicky about it.

Last time I checked, BEGi had a bunch of different reroutes, so you're gonna need to be more specific.

The turbo return is always at the mixing manifold (anywhere between the radiator and mixing manifold, but in reality that means the mixing manifold), but the feed can be anywhere on the block, before/after the thermostat, anywhere before the radiator basically.

That wiki picture is spot on. Easy and simple.
