that makes sense, I was wondering what that little tube coming off of the side was for, I wonder what would happen if there was no coolant in there?

the same thing that would happen if you ran an oil cooled turbo with no oil hooked up.

no if it is water cooled it still is oill cooled and therefore lubrication is oil this turbo is pprobably from a small truck
and the fitting on the side is for water
