Actual results vary from truck to truck. Basically it gives, a smoother idle, improved throttle response and a bit more HP and torque (usually noticeable by seat of the pants dyno).What exactly is the benefit of this mod?
That is something everyone has to decide for themselves. IMO, considering the time and effort swamps (and others though I don't know all their names right off) have put into solving the mystery of and tweaking the punk out of our IDM's, it's a good price.what he said and is it worh the extra 175
Check with a local wrecking yard for a good/working IDM to send in. Once you have your modded unit back, sell or hord your stock IDM.i have been thinking about getting one i just cant afford for my trck to be down while i send mine in and wait to get mine back and how much better is the swamps or beans
a chip and modded IDM can be run together. just make sure your tuner knows you have a modded IDM.does a chip take the place of this mod or can it be used with a chip?
Good advice - as usual.You can search on this site the "it yourself IDM mod" and find out its just replacing a single precision resistor (about a buck). The thread gives the specs on the resistor and how to do it. However, its not easy to replace so one way you can have this done taking it to a school with an electronics program (high school or JC?) and have the resistor changed out.
:whs:I did the mod. It wasn't that hard. If you can solder, you can do it. If you cannot solder I am sure you can find someone who can. Again, this is an easy mod.
Roger. Here is the thread on Swamps Hi-Voltage / Hi-Frequency IDM's. It's a good read.Swamps change the voltage and frequencies of the IDM when Beans only changes the voltage. I have no experience on whos better but I know all about it they have testing posted up somewhere?
