I drive away immediately. I limit myself to 3k rpm until I see a little over 120 degrees F on the guage. since the boost comes on pretty early in my car I sometimes see a little blip of up to .5 bar boost when I'm going through the gears. I wait until it's fully warmed up (around 180 degrees) before giving it boost intentionally or exceed 4k rpm.

Sometimes I let my American cars idle a bit while I get things together and get comfortable. Big water jackets, V8 engines, and forgiving tolerances make me tend to believe that it doesn't matter so much with them. That and I can replace an engine for less than $1000 in them...
