Thanks DeepEddy and all.

I find the realoem diagrams of the turbos and cooling hard to follow.

Are there better resources to understand circulation direction, etc?

I honestly didn't realize the turbos had coolant to them. Silly me.

I don't see it as relevant, but I did shred my serpentine belt just prior to garaging for the winter. While most pulleys had belt wrapped around them, the crank pulley had none, and the seal is in perfect shape with no leaks.
