The best way to set it up is to run it off an EGT probe on a timer. Once the turbo timer sees the EGT's bellow 300° it will shut off. If you decide you want to give it more time than that you can get some that will let you set a time limit of your liking. I have a couple of trucks here at work that I have put turbo timers on and I just have them set up to idle for 3 minutes.
Another thing that will help increase the life of your new turbo would be to look into a BD crank case breather relocation kit. Pumping the intercooler and intake full of oil isn't doing your turbo any favors. The compressor side of your turbo should never have oil in it. Eventually it will cause clipping in the wheel
I think the Ford's potential has been to long overshadowed by the Cummins and I like to see people take the path less traveled. That is why I am here, to find and observe ways to make representable power with the Powerstroke engine!
