I'm curious too!!! I really don't think there's a DIY for this. But I've been thinking about getting a timer, I just have no idea about them.

I like to know what is the safe Temp on the Pyro gauge to shut the truck off for proper cool down of the turbo? Thanks

A good alarm will have a setting on it for a short/run or turbo timer.
