turbo cool down

i dont have a egt gauge i was just wondering how much my turbo cools down when i let it idle for about 5 min after a 1 hour trip (home from work)

Is it realy worth letting it idle, does it cool down that much?
Thanks for the help

how far off the higway are you? My rule of thumb is 5 min of essentially babying it. the last 3 miles of my commute are side roads... the truck is hardly over idle for that... that's my cooldown.

if your letting it idle for 5min it will be cooled off as much as its going to.

anything but a chrysler product

the only thing that runs good on a dodge is the drivers mouth

if you are not at full coast even on side roads you are still upwards of 500+ degrees when you reach your destination. I always let mine cool down to 400 degrees. Pulling up even if I am 750+ it still takes less than 3-4 minutes to cool down.

actually, now that we're talking about turbos... out of all of the ambulances I run, I have never had a turbo go bad. I read on here people go through multiple...

The EMT's that drive our rigs do not give a damn about cooldown or about driving it anything but on redline! Any ideas why I have no issues with turbos and everyone else does?

It is possible that my BG cleanings clean out the coking enough that it's a non issue... but we have only been doing the BG services for the past year.

I just wait til my (preturbo) pyrometer hits 350. Unless i've been towing or running it hard, then i'll wait about 2 or 3 minutes after it gets below 350, then shut it down.

Thats why you don't have turbo problems.
