water cooling turbo?

First of all, I would like say either I can't do one of the simplest tasks, or I've found a question google searches and focus fanatics searches can't answer.

That being said, has anyone tapped into their water lines to cool their turbo? I have a ball bearing turbo and didn't cool it at all last year and never had problems considering I have a pump to pull all the oil out of the turbo when I shut the car off so it doesn't cook.

I have a good idea of where I can tap into for the feed line, but I don't really know where I should drain it too since the turbo sits so low. Any insight whether how to do it or if it's even worth my time would be greatly appreciated
