Water cooled turbos: coolant flow question

Can someone tell me where to access coolant for something like water cooled turbos? Obviously I would like the water to "flow" through so I am looking for the proper ports to access to get that flow. I am actually using it for an Air Oil Separator but either way, I need the water to flow so...any pointers in the right direction. I searched and didnt find anything. Was hoping to use the plugs on the side of the block but not sure on flow path.

Thanks!

I would say that pulling pressure from the outer block drain plugs near the cylinder liners, or the heads would be a good source. You would need to return near the radiator outlet, or inlet to the water pump.

Use the lower radiator drain plug (NPT threaded) for a quick & easy 'return' access. Where you pull the feed from is up to you. Lots of option, but I like the block drain plugs. Also, water cooled turbos don't really 'flow' water though the turbo housing in the way the engine is forcibly cooled. Water cooled turbos just use convection of the heated coolant to move coolant though the system....aka hot water will naturally flow out of the turbo drawing cooler water in. It isn't really pumped through. Not sure if your objective actually falls inline with this concept.

I used a t in the heater lines. With the heater valve closed, the water flows. When was the last time you used the heater??

Thanks you guys very much! the diagram is great and really helps. I was looking for "flow" just so the AOS would heat up as quickly as possible. Mine are located behind the front fascia and are too cool thus the hot crankcase vapor is creating condensation when it get out into that cool can and the oil and water mix is clogging up my AOS filters faster than I like. Add in the use of E85 and it gets a bit worse as the alcohol absorbs water vapor from the incoming humid air. . I have nowhere in the engine bay to put the AOS without fear of a fire should it leak out onto a header or something. Your ideas should help me route this with some flow. and solve the problem. Thanks!

I used the block drain for the feed and returned to the heater core line for my Comp oil less turbos.
