You should wait till oil temps to reach 170 before getting into boost.
As others have said it's not actually good for a car to make short trips without warming up, but if you have choice, I would suggest warming the car up 5-10 min prior to driving to give it a chance to get to full operating temp.

Revving high during warm up is not the proper way of "warming up" an engine. You should operate the car normally and conservatively until it warms up on its own.

Full operating temp gets moisture out of the oil, exhaust and gives other components time to get to operating temp for proper lubrication ETC
