Is it better to run the throttle to a turbo diesel engine wide open or at minimum throttle?

It depends on the load placed on the engine. You won't get a lot of additional horsepower, or "boost" from the turbo unless the engine is working - as in pulling a heavy load or operating hydraulics etc. You can run the throttle wide open, but if the engine is just running, and the machine it's installed in is not moving then you're just burning fuel. Other than that, more load=more throttle.
