How Long Do You Make Her Wait When She's Hot an Ready???

How long do most of you wait to shut down your trucks after driving them? Going by the Owners Manual it states let the hot Turbocharged engine cool down, especially after Towing heavy loads, high speeds and so forth. I let her cool down even after a trip to fill her up for at least a minute, then 3-5 minutes or the time it takes me to smoke a cig after running her hard. I have been doing this since I had my '11 and never had any heat related issues. I wish Ford would include an EGT gauge but that's besides the point. So no gauge means I do it my way. Just curious what everyone else does?

Try to wait till my cts says 350 or below egt. Or until it halfway stabilizes. But without looking at that I like to have at least 2 minutes to cool down and if I have been on a long trip maybe 5 minutes, sometimes 30 seconds when I'm impatient. I cool down regardless if I had a load or not. Also if I crank up and have to stop and go in somewhere before she has warmed up I leave it running.

Alot of times I wait only 30 seconds. But I run my truck pretty easy and if I do have a hard run def. cool down for a while.

When I had my 6.4 with Mini Max I waited till the egt was at 300 or less. If you turned the air conditioning off, it usually got down to 300 within 30 seconds. It took a lot longer with the air on. My 6.7 is stock so no gauge as you have noted. Dealer said not really necessary to wait, but I still give it 30 seconds or so with the air off.

I don't wait, just shut it down. I'm not towing my trailer too often so it's not much of an issue, never gets more than 15-20 highway miles at a time either.
