Sorry,
Wast of time, when you consider the volume of air flowing through the turbo, turbine and compressor sides, the cooling from an external medium such as air to metal is minimal no matter how much air you can push over the turbo. Without shrouds around the turbo the cooling effect would be minimal. Go to http://www.pre-luber.com/ and check out their pre/post oiler setups, 2-300 bucks, not as blingy as the race setups but very effictive and simple too.
