Shutdown EGT question?

So, i cant seem to get my truck to cool down under 340-330 deg. no matter how mutch I let it idle.. I was thinking it used to go below 300 before i would shut down.
Is there an issue or is it ok to shutdown at 340deg. ?

Anything under 350* shouldn't cause any issues, and 400* is acceptable. I turn my A/C off a block or so from my destination, and let it get to 375-400*before shutting her down.

No, i still have the ac on. Mine goes under 400 with the quickness, maybe like 15-20 sec after stopping.
If 340 is acceptible I guess I am good, I just did not want to cook the oil in the turbo.
