Hi Dean - try the link below for advice on engine oil - to look after your turbo it's best to change the engine oil and filter every 6,000 miles and try not to use the turbo until the engine has warmed up - likewise after a long hot run letting the engine idle for a while before you switch off helps a bit. Turbos don't like dirty lubrication or sudden changes in temperature - remember the turbo relies on a good source of oil not just for lubrication but also as a means of cooling.
