No picture, but it comes off of the small hardline right behind the T-stat, so if the feed to the TB is reduced when the T-stat is open, the feed to the turbo is as well.
Either way, even with reduced flow, as long as there are no bubbles in the system, convection will still carry the coolant away. When you turn your car off, coolant is still circulating around the system.
You guys are worrying about this too much, IMO. This effort, as I said earlier, is better spent eliminating the HOT WATER RECIRCULATION going on with the small hardline on the back of the engine. Look at it: hot water leaves the head, travels to the T-stat, then goes into the "cold" side input from the radiator and back into the water pump to be circulated throughout the engine. Horrible.
