I'll route your coolant ::licks lips LL styley::

My turbo coolant lines route from the block fitting-->turbo--> the lower radiator hose. It's an anomaly, I'm fucked

No more f*cked up lines.

Perfect thermal siphoning after shutdown:

And before anyone asks, FM heatshield sits perfectly between the return line and the turbo.

Good discussion, can't believe i missed this thread until now. What miracle are we supposed to be seeing in that video? (serious question).

Garrett approved thermal siphoning, cold water runs upwards from the coolant port on the block through the turbo after shutdown.
Doesn't happen when taking coolant from TB (hot water higher than the turbo) and returning to mixing manifold nipple (cold water lower than the turbo).

On AbeFM's picture on my first post I'm only trying to illustrate the idea for the coolant return higher in the system. In his case back of the head.

The water feed on the block is the lowest point where you can take the feed after the pump (high pressure). The highest point where you can return your coolant is back of the head after the thermostat (reroute) or your upper water hose (low pressure).

Is it definitely a water port? Are you completely sure?
Im thinking to connect that high pressure port to the turbo inlet and turbo outlet to rear head (blind port).

Yes, it is a water port. I use it on my 94 and it works.
