Coolant lines routing

Hey have a quick question on how the turbo coolant lines should be routed. Right now I have one line coming from the rear iron. The other line comes from the bottom right of the radiator if looking at the front of the car. should I leave it like this or reroute them somewhere else? thanks

what point on the rear Iron?

should be fine, The coolant gets so hot at the turbo is will flow just with convection currents if set up right.

Mine personally is setup just after the pump.

If looking at the front of the car it's the top left of the rear iron. Thanks

So I found out that line going to the turbo from the rear iron was a thermowax line so it originally went to the throttle body. If anyone else has input on this or would like to suggest another way let me know. Thanks

So I've decided to move my coolant return to the lower radiator elbow. There's is a coolant nipple there that I think was for the stock turbo. It's weird that the return nipple there would face down though. That means the coolant return from the turbo would travel down, then up, then down again, but looking at the diagram it makes sense.
