EGT Question

For those who have guages....when you have been driving around and your egt's have been getting hot. What temperature do you usually let it get down to until you shut the engine off.

During the summer I let it turn off lower than winter. If im just driving 330-360. Heavy driving, towing, crazy, 310~280.

during the summer the eng is obviously hotter but more of the eng is hotter.... During the winter the eng is still hot but less of it is hotter so I dont fell the need to let the eng idel longer to let the egt's down.

My Vegistroke system runs my truck for 1 1/2 mins after I pull the key out so I see this as sufficient cooling before the truck goes to bed. Also I live in an apt complex and workk on an USAF base so my last 2 mins of driving are pretty much at idle anyways. So I would think they are down to below 350 when I shut down.

400-450 ish will probably be lower with a straight pipe as getting it sub 400 degrees takes for ever with stock exaust
