140V IDM

OK, I have a 140V IDM that came with the truck (uninstalled) I have not installed it yet. What benefits, performance gains or any other differences should I see?

Re: 140V IDM

you'll inject a slightly larger amount of fuel. Makes the injectors open faster...

Oh great, as if blacking out all lanes of traffic now with just slight throttle pressure isn't enough.

Re: 140V IDM

I believe SD's come with a 120V stock, where the obs's come with a 100 or 110. I know that it's been done on the SD's, but i dont know if it was worth it.

Re: 140V IDM

Well, I was thinking of putting the 140V on the SD, and putting the SD 120V on the OBS. However both look like a pain in the azz and my outdoor garage doesn't have heat right now.

Re: 140V IDM

It's not hard at all. Remove three mounting bolts and two bolts that hold the plug in. wiggle, and out it comes.
The actual soldering is relatively easy as well. some people play it up to be bigger than it really is...

True... once you get the G'damn fender liner torn away from the hands of Satan and out of your way long enough to do that.

Oh, and I can't stand a low voltage IDM anymore. The truck just feels spongy and weak. With the cracked pickup tube my truck wouldn't drive farther than about a mile without the high voltage IDM. It matters.
