How's 1:20?

Not great. You need to clear immigration in FRA and any delay at all will probably make you miss your flight.

Should be around 1 hour I believe.

Thanks, I also believe it should be about an hour, but I was looking to find out if anyone knew the exact official time.

Would anyone know if it's doable to skirt the minimum connection time if I buy the tickets separately, checkin online for the second flight, and then just make a run for my connecting flight when I land?  I'm looking to land in Istanbul on one ticket and depart on a second ticket 40 minutes later. Both are on Turkish, both are international, and I won't have any checked in luggage.

I wouldn't do that. If your inbound flight lands late and you miss the flight you're trying to make, you won't be protected. However if the flight that you actually book as the connection is just a back up to the flight that leaves 40 minutes after you land, so that even if you miss the flight you really want to be on you still have a backup flight, then I would say it's fine.

Thanks. Do you think there's a chance that Turkish's system would be sophisticated enough to not let me check in for the first flight, since I'm already checked in online for the second flight that leaves 40 minutes after the first one?

I have no idea, not even if it were another airline's system.
