You won't have to do any soldering if you buy from Beans. Just swap em out.

Yep, your just sending your IDM to Beans, they do the modification and then send it back to you. And its worth it.

"Worth it" is relative, mine was $0.25.

The improvents are noteable but not huge. It will start easier and have a crisper pedal feel.

This is true. If you know how to solder, you can DIY for less than a dollar. However, you screw it up, and you just gambled 300 bucks on a new IDM.

I really wanted to do this mod, but can`t find anyone local that has the resistor`s. Does anyone with a chip have this done? and if so did it help? Good luck with the idm from beans post back and tell me how it works. Roger

1 of mine is stock tunes and straight pipe/DIY intake and it runs good. The other has a DP, TW/TS, intake and straight pipe and you can't take off with more than 1/2 throttle w/o frying the right rear.

Was that on the 99? Cuz its not much of a difference from 120v to 140v where as the OBS trucks are jumping from either 100 or 110 to 140.
