How many of you have done the 75k resistor mod yourself or just had a local shop do it? Has anyone expierenced any problems after they did the mod? I ordered the resistor from Digi-Key this AM. I am not good w/ a soldering iron so I thought I could get a local computer repair store to install it for me. I thought I would get some opinions before I did anything though.

IIRC Beans Diesel Performance sells a modded IDM for $100.

I don't know what they do but i would much rather do that than have some dude go messin with something he has no clue about. It would be a lot easier and probably cheaper in the long run to just send yours in and get one done the right way.

I did my own...I have steady hands. Forgot to hook the battery up after install and nearly soiled my pants. Definatly notice a big difference in power. I was willing to take the $300 gamble if you arne't $100 sounds pretty reasonable and they won't accept a fried IDM. They might do more than just a resistor change as well??

100 bucks is dirt cheap. Does Matty still do em? I think he was doin em for 50?

I'd foot the bill and have someone good do it, besides, Swamps does more to theres than the regular mod IIRC.

I've did 2 myself. Easy cheesy!! Took me longer to get the cover peeled off than it did to replace the resistor. Plus the resistors were given to me from a forum member that had extras. So the only cost I had was in the caulking and can of spray paint.

If you don't feel comfortable doing a $5 mod, then spend the $100 thru Beans for the EXACT same thing.


I'm currently waiting on a Swamps IDM for my other truck. Chose to send it to them with an extra core for a cost reduction, just to see what theirs is all about. I'll have the ability to swap out the Swamps for the DIY and see if there's any difference.

ok did mine this weekend at the same time as an adrenaline. whoa big difference. the idm is a ten min job once you get the cover off, its easy. and worth it. and if you want pics KarTec did a good write up on here, called modding the idm on a 7.3. check it out really helpful.
