How long do you let it cool ??

I just installed a pyro gauge. What temp are you looking to get to before you shut your truck down?

depends on where you mounted your pyro. Temps will be differnet in the manifold vrs the down pipe. Mine being in the down pipe, I let it cool to 400 before I shut it down

I mounted it after the turbo.

So 350 - 400 is what I should be shutting down at then?

After the turbo is going to be around 150 to 200 degrees cooler just so you know.

I thought it was more than that. I thought it was in the area of 300-400 degrees after the turbo. I just say that just because of when you drive the big rigs they all have their pyro after the turbo and I can't ever get a rig to do over 700 w/o a trailer. You're probably right, I just thought I'd throw my guess work out there. I suck at driving big rigs anyways, I don't even have a CDL.

Mine is installed in the manifold pre-turbo. I shut mine down at 400 degrees.
