turbo install help

ok so i got my turbo in, oil and water line came with it. but i saw a pic on the internet that confused me about the turbo. on the bottom there is a line and i have no idea where it goes. where does it connect to?

On the driver side of the up pipe there should be a rubber line, either for coolant or oil i cant remember, you just have to slide the metal line that is connected to the bottom of the turbo into the rubber line. Correct me if I'm wrong. Those aren't the best instructions but hopefully it will help a little.

that is your oil return line. it connects to a rubber hose which connects to another nipple in the block.
