Can anybody please post pictures of the feed or lower line to a water cooled turbo on a ea-81.
l have figured out where the top hose goes and have done a search for these pics but cannot find anything clear.
The areas that are of main interest are, where does the supply come from? what does the joint look like, and can l use a standard t piece to connect it?
Thanks for any help in advance.

The water is fed from the drain hole in the bottom of the 1-3 cylinder head. The rubber hose coming out of the turbo joins to a metal line at the back of the head - this line has a banjo fitting on the end which screws into the drain bung.
Does that help?

Helps Heaps, thanks Ross, This is a replacement turbo for my VF-1 which was air cooled and quite ill so l have nothing to go by and am making the fittings to suit as l go along. by the way, l did look up your recent thread regarding this conversion and the photo's you posted were excellent and very helpful running the top hose, thanks for that.
