Just use synth oil. All turbo times do is circulate oil after shutdown to keep the dino oil from coking on the turbo bearings and eating them up on restart. Synth does not coke. Save yourself a lot of money, time and frustration.

Total waste of money. You have water cooled bearings, run good oil and change on reasonable schedule
