Default Water line for turbo

Im about to replace the lower radiator hose from the pump to the left side of the radiator and as I was looking at it I noticed the coolant line for the turbo was very rusty. What is the proper name for this line, I'm looking for it on eeuroparts.com and I cant find it in the diagrams. Its the one that stems off from the radiator hose and connects to the turbo. What's this thing called?

Thats all part of the bottom hose, so it should read something like.. "bottom hose with water cooled turbo"

I found that the steel part of this hose was very rusty on the outside - but also about 3mm thick and absolutely fine on the inside. I couldn't separate it from the lower radiator hose though.

Then I guess I will just order the hose and maybe try to clean the turbo line before I put it all back together. Thanks a lot.
