Single turbo cooling question

Do guys think if I take the throttle body water outlet from the rear of the engine to the gt4202 Turbo, it would provide enough flow for adequate Cooling? I'm using stock oil outlet. I had been using the heater outlet, but I'm adding a heater, so that one is no longer available. How do single turbo guys usually water cool their turbos? Thanks!

Off of the water pump housing. Same lines the twins used.

What he said. I'm running a journal-bearing turbo, so I just have a loop running off of the water pump housing.

Thanks for the reply. This is confusing. I've been looking at coolant flow diagram, and I thought I had it wrong. The stock setup is really weird... how would coolant reach turbo if it's taking off before the water pump? It's coming off from low pressure system and going into another low pressure system before the thermostat. Am I missing something?

I don't have time to search right now, but you can look at pics of single turbo setups for reference. Also search terms like "water feed" or "water lines" and you will see many threads.

Here is an old thread:
