Question Turbo warmup period?

How long do you guys wait before you actually start driving your cars into heavy boost?

I wait until the oil temp needle passes the thick white bar, which I've been led to believe is when the engine's warm enough to be driven normally.

When I say normally, I mean, safe to actually be taken to max boost.

I try to take my car into full boost a few times to/from work, which is typically a 30 minute journey each way. Less if my foot feels a bit heavier

The general consensus with these cars is that they love to be revved and driven hard. Moreso than just being babied
