Every turbo car should be run for a min or two before turning off so the oil pressure remains there whilst the turbo stops spinning

Well the harder you use the car the longer you should leave it on tick over.

My bros scoob has a Blitz one and the longest thats kept the car running is 1min 60secs

Normaly 1 min would be more than fine

As long as you're gentle with the car for the last mile or two you shouldn't even need to leave it running at all really.

Yeah haynes manual states "after a spirited drive ensure the car is allowed to idle for a minimum of 2 minutes" I always give it 3 or so & listen to sum tunes.
