Turbo cool down time

Does anyone with an EGT have some experience with the time it takes to cool down to a reasonble shut down temperature? I have an Edge Insight and want to set up the shut down timer. I usually let the engine idle for 3-4 minutes if I've just come off the highway, but I'd like some real info instead of my guesswork.

Thanks,

JW

I dont often drive on the highway, but usually by the time i pull in my driveway, the EGT's are already either at or just under 400. 350-400 is usually my mark i go for before i shut it down.

I would imagine if you have the setup with the Insight, it should go off the EGT. Anywhere below 400 is where I shut mine down at. It takes FOREVER for it to get to 350*, especially in the summer

At lower elevations, it may be easier to hit the 350* mark though . I'm at 6k ft

Mine gets to below 350 in less than a minute in winter and in summer it takes about 2 minutes. I have a turbo timer sset to shut down at 2 minutes after I key it off.

OK, that's what I'm looking for. Our climate here in the Pacific NW is usually pretty mild, but we may drive it east this summer. I think the EGT add-on is in our near future, but not right now.

My worst case is pulling into a rest area in the mountains where there's not much low speed time before stopping, and the engine may have been pulling fairly hard.

Thanks for your responses,

John
