EGT Temp

Hey fellas. I'm sure this question has already been asked and answered but I'm asking again. What is the consensus on letting the turbo cool down before turning it off. I was always been told don't shut it down unless the egt's are between 300-350. Is that true or just BS. Thanks

i would say thats a good habit to have!! those temps are being read at idle so let it idle for a few moments and let it cool down~
