Cheers gentlemen,

Is there any maintenance that needs to be performed in the turbo itself and does the turbo use the same oil as the engine does?

Good point - I’ve been opening the hood to let the engine cool off…probably overkill…

90% of engine oil goes through turbo, this is why a premium oil is necessary, and personnaly I suggest 10 W60 full synthetic oil, W60 being viscosity when warm.
Oil temp hot could be around 95 °C or more ( 200 ° F or more)

As said first let car warm slowly for 20/ 30 km , and when hot, let it run iddling 1 mn or more if you have sollicitate the engine seriously.
For example on motorway if you arrrive at gas station and stop, this is wrong, oil is very hot and engine too. Oil film will be "alone " in the burning turbo

Opening hood is an excellent idea, alaso for all electrical and plastic.

Last point, if you have intercooler, replacing cooler coolant is crucial and bleeding too with official procedure or with vacuum system.
This coolant only for Turbo is neglected with car with intercooler.

car with bi Turbo as Arnage are supposed to be more difficult to replace coolant, specially bleediing , if you do not bleed, you may have hot point in engine which is bad.

Replacing coolant with vacuum procedure is recommended by some experts like Robison. Of course hooses should be in very good conditions.
