The turbo lube feed line? That is one line I would be wary of fiddling with. Also, I don't think you'll have sufficient flow to make any real difference. Check out flow from drain to confirm or disprove.
If other things work out, why not from the turbo drain. That is when the oil will be hottest, and will benefit most from cooling.

Don't get this.

If the oil used is not synthetic oil then maybe putting the cooler right before the turbo oil intake would be a better idea. High temperature tends to noticeably alter the chemical make up of natural oil causing it to lose it's lubricity, it's lubricating function. And, turbos can be real cookers. This placement before the turbo would tend to eliminate hot spikes of oil entering the turbo and being further super heated. Of course, if you want to be really snazzy put one before and one after.

Lightbulb Re: The Unusual Oil Cooler - How Effective?

I recently picked up a Maruti800-Automatic (3Spd) 1990 model (from Tbhp Classifieds).

The Auto box cools the transmission oil per the following pics. I had sent this to Dhanush a month earlier, thought it will be of help here for future ref.
