The turbos really need to be cooled down before shutting off if you have driven it hard at all, otherwise you will start seeing drops of oil in the coolant.

Bottom line - keep it stock or near and treat it right and it will do you good. Do otherwise and get your checkbook out.
I take it you had turbo timers?

I tend to take it very easy on my little turbo before parking and take my time putting the sunglasses up, turning off the radio, a/c just in case.
