I try to be reallllll careful with my EGT's, I try to stay about 10 degrees below Thermo-nuclear meltdown.

I have no clue what temp Thermo-nuclear meltdown is, but I know I passed it once.....

I have seen 1500+.....but I cruise on the highway around 850 degrees

when you say that you shut down at 400 what does that mean. that might sound like a rediculous question but im not sure what it means. you let the truck idle and cool down to 400 before you shut it down? thanks for any help

oh ok so your egt's are actually pretty cool at idle then. do people do this every time they are shutting down the truck. i run lots of errands in my truck and its on and off quite a bit. about how long at idle does it take to cool down?

Most times only a few seconds. Since it is so hot here in AZ, I sometimes have to turn my AC off in order to get it to drop to 400... Seems crazy, but it works.
