    Just to clarify as it could easily be misinterpreted from that picture: the coolant feed (from the block) goes to the front (radiator side) of the CHRA; the return (to the water pipe) is on the back of the CHRA (block side). The top and bottom ports are for oil.

    For reference -- yes, it has happened: P1104 wastegate soleniod fault

    Can u post a pic of what u mean?
    The turbo is water cooled and has a feed and return coolant hose.

    If u mean the drain hose for the oil it will be routed to your oil pan.

    You have a 1G block, that's why you don't have the other fitting to mate with the one you're showing us. Referencing the above diagram, the one you have that is not connected is #17. If it were a 2G block, you would have this fitting and these components in the block to connect to: 2g Block Coolant Line.

    That leaves a lot of places to leak, but it would work. If you're plugging things, consider plugging the return port on the water pipe (just to the right of #7 in the diagram). Do note that by plugging anything up, either by the return port or by line #17, that you will not be water-cooling your turbo at all. Not necessarily a bad thing, more of an FYI.

    The alternative is to create a feed point to provide coolant to your turbo. This can be accomplished by inserting a T in the #5 hose, branching from there to connect to #17.

    Fwiw, i ran my 5558 w no water cooling for 3k miles. Zero issues at all.
    The FP black i have now also is not water cooled. Just don't run the piss outta the car and then shut if off. Give it a good 2 minutes of low load, no boost driving and that will stop any coking issues in the CHRA.
    Now i'm not saying water cooling the CHRA is bad, not at all. I looked at it as unnecessary for my purposes and basically just additional failure points, i.e leaks.
    I capped the line and capped the block coolant port. No problems thus far on either turbo

    Instead of running the hose from the bottom of the turbo and t in the # 5 can i run the hose that goes to the bottom of the turbo to the oil pan?

    There are 4 lines, 2 are coolant, 2 are oil. The line on the bottom of the turbo with two bolts that hold it on is the OIL drain back. This must go to the oil pan. The oil feed is on the top of the turbo. The other two are coolant line. Obviously the coolant and oil need to stay separate.

    Yes, on the turbo. I'd be slightly concerned running coolant to your turbo and having it go nowhere. The plug you put in the side means you will have hot coolant in your turbo pretty much all the time.

    ^ Either don't run coolant to it meaning both tubes unplugged (i wouldn't advise that). Or hook up both lines. Just one seems like asking for trouble.
