Turbo questions

Ok so this has nothing to do with my car, but im building a turbo kit for another bike.
On a GT25 ball bearing turbo do you have to run coolant threw it or can I block off the ports?
Is there a place I can get a Garrett GT25 BB for under a grand or is there another company that makes a turbo that will compair to the GT25 BB that dont cost a grand? Ive been looking for sometime and not even able to find one used. Im not running over 6PSI and I would like to get one that has an interanl wastegate.

You don't need coolant for a BB but it is highly recommended. If you don't, make sure you let the turbo cool down before you shut off the bike.

Also, you can buy a t25, uses the same exhaust flange and then upgrade to a gt25 when one becomes available. T25s are everywhere used, cheap, and will make decent power at low boost on a bike and spool is not a huge issue since bikes can rev to the moon.
