Is there any difference between IDMs?

I heard that there is a difference between IDMs depending on the year of your truck. For example, my truck is an early 99. Supposedly, early 99s have a 110v IDM. In 2000, they wnet to a 120v version. I also believe that the 94-97 trucks had a 90v IDM.

So what I am wondering, is this. Is the 120v version better (performance wise) than the 110v or the 90v?

Yes there is a voltage difference. In all there are 3 versions and all can be interchanged. There are 100, 110, and 120 volt IDM's and yes, more voltage is better. I even do a mod to them that allows them to have 140 volts.

What's involved in the voltage mod?
