Good job most turbo boys use semi synth CTV in minis 😎

I'm still not sure I agree with your longevity statement, but that's not for here.

Considering a turbo sharing the same oil as the rest of the engine on a high output A-series will most likely outlive the transmission by some considerable margin, i wouldn’t be to concerned.

Plus they're not mega expensive to rebuild if it does go pop.

Just change the oil more often then. New oil is cheap engine protection. If you're cryin about the cost of oil wait till you see the cost of forced induction!!!!(done proper like)

on the subject of oil cleanliness, you should be swapping it out pretty often on a high performance engine like this, also I would add a billet oil filter housing without the bypass valve, but the main think is let the  motor warm up and cool down properly,
