Does anyone know whether there are any dangers to running a turbo or supercharged car in extreme cold weather climates? (-20C to -30C or -4F to -22F)

This is purely a question out of curiosity. Where I live, it can get as cold as -35C or -31F in the winter.

from what i've heard and was told...

turbo + cold = good

Supercharger + cold = bad

Only thing I can think about is the oil pressure for the turbo...the warm up and cool down periods required by turbos may be different in cold weather. Add, the use of 0w oil may be necessary, prob a 0w40 or a 0w30.
