That's pretty hot, so point well taken. Maybe our examples tho are coming from the bigger diesels in bigger trucks. I would imagine the 3.0l EGTs would drop faster because there's less mass in engine, exhaust manifold and turbo housing. Smaller things cool faster because they have a higher ratio of surface area vs. volume. Also, an anecdote re. an big diesel pulling 10000lbs isn't necessarily comparable because the 1500 wouldn't normally be asked to work so hard.@ranger. The distance from the highway to my house is short enough that even taking my time at the stop sign my EGTs are still 5-600* by the time I get to my driveway.
In my owners manual under the 3.0 diesel instructions,there is a table with times from less then a minute to 5 minutes depending on how hard the engine has been worked up to shutting it down.less then a minute is for no load. and light stop and go driving.From there the time advised increases depending on how much load was being placed on the engine.The 5 minutes is for extreme conditions like pulling a heavy trailer uphill.I apply these times to a gas engine anyways if it's been working hard,rather then just shutting it down as this is how I was taught too.Most of the time I can ease into where I need to be so I don't have to sit and idle much anyways.I'm curious about the 4-5 mins instructions. Everything I've heard is modern turbo designs and motor oils essentially eliminate real-world worry of coking oil. It's been that way for some time now. I would think 2 mins max would get it done which happens by the time you slow down, take the off ramp, and park it. I've owned 2 dmax's and I never worried about it, never had a problem, and never heard of a problem.
