No expert but I always let my truck idle a minute before shutting off, easier on motor, im instalking pyro soon too to have better idea, I looked at buying a turbo timer but ladt wk my auto start/ alarm fried so I ordered a new auto start/ alarm for diesels with a turbo timer that you can adjust for 1, 2 or 5 minutes! Shipped to my door for 280$ retailed for 700$ on sonic electronics site.
Auto start, alarm, and timer great deal I,figure will let you know how it works

I've never have used a turbo timer & i've never had turbo problems I sold my 1999 F-250 with 141,000 miles to a friend & his truck was stolen & total with over 189,000 miles & it still had the factory turbo, My 2008 F-250 has 50,550 miles on the turbo & is running fine, I do let my truck idle for at least 30 seconds before I turn off the engine, if I hotrod my truck I'll give it at least a minute of idle.

I hate Edge so much, I quit using Edge shaving gel!



Early turbo timers would make the computer mad because the motor was running while the key was off. Get an EGT and spool it down to 400*, done.
