No, as long as you don't go from boost to directly turning off the engine it should be fine.

But you wanting to EOC definitely reinforces my argument that you shouldn't drop hot oil viscosity. You will cook the oil in that turbo and could potentially kill it prematurely.

Also, drop the attitude, I was just trying to help. If you wanna blow up a 3 year old car trying to save literally pennies per fill up (if even that) because you want to run thinner oil on a turbo engine, go right on ahead.

Sorry if I seemed to have any attitude. Little to objective in seeing where your view was based. My apologies and thank you for the input.

Mobil used to make plain zero weight synthetic

How did that compare?

If? You decide to EOC a turbo anything install a pyrometer and dont shut off toe coolent (oil) till it cools to 300f for conventional oil and 4-500f varying by brand of synthetic.
Another consideration is, if it is flat towable (aka lube is flowing with the engine off)
Coking and abuse are the normal turbo failure causes. Coking is the deposits caused by the lighter compounds evaporating leaving the heavies to become solids blocking the flow of coolent (oil).
Gumby Stay Flexible.
