Default Warm Ups Neccessary?

Ok, since my rebuilt engine on my 2000 RS-T, ive been warming up my car to operating temp. before even driving it. basically, before i go to work, or n e where else, i start it up, and just let the turbo timer take over and idle for about 3-4 minutes or so before driving. i was wondering if this is a good idea, or what?
Should i not even bother warming it up?

It wont hurt it to warm it up. I usually just try to keep mine under 3k and out of boost until the coolant temp is around 180F.

Let it idle for 15 to 30 seconds in the summer... (more in cold weather) and then just drive it gently until it fully warms up. No need to sit in the car for 4 minutes... unless you really need to boost as soon as you get in the car....
