Default Turboing ej25

I'm wondering what other people have done to give there turbos oil and water. I am using a stock wrx setup (exhaust and turbo). Dose the turbo need pressurized oil and water lines or does it suck them in?

as far as i know some turbo kits come with oil pan attachments that direct oil to the turbo. So using that idea, i believe it would be pressurized, well it would be the same pressure as the engines circulation.

I doubt the turbo sucks it in because that would require the turbo to use some of its energy to draw in fluid. That would take away from the power it could make and also the flow would vary depending on the turbine speed which could lead to over heating.

I'm not sure but thats the best answer i can give, right now.

The turbo gets oil from the block and drains back to the pan or valve cover.

It gets it's water from either the TB hoses or the heater hoses.

The oil feed is pressurized and the drain is gravity.

Water is pushed into the turbo by the water pump.

So, I'm guessing I should just bung a heater core hose or something and then run the oil drain into the pan. On the water return is there any specific spot that would be best?
