Default coolant leak after turbo install

I had a shop do some workyesterday, and every thing seemed fine till today. immediately saw smoke early this morning..and it seems that there is a leak under the vf39. The shop was cool and said to bring it in, but I WAS WONDERING IF THIS is something that I figure out myself? what hose is it?

Should I take the hose off and put on a better hose fitting? I didn;t allow the coolant overflow to get too low, but the smoke freaks me out.The shop is 25 miles away, and I don't want to drive that far. AARRgggHHH I am pissed.

The coolant feed hose is easy to check. The coolant return hose is a little tougher as it runs underneath the turbo. I'd check those. Also check the reservoir, itself.

Check the bolts on the banjo fittings, you can check them from under the car with a 17mm wrench. I had this problem 2 days ago.
