    140 V IDM Mod

    So I picked up a SD IDM that had been converted to a 140 volt output.

    My daily driver tune is my 120 race tune. I've gotten used to that tune and have used it for about 2 years now.

    So when it comes to adding something to my truck, it doesn't normally impress my "seat of the pants dyno" so much.

    Well, I do have to say, I'm impressed. Throttle response is greatly increased.

    I've been running a self modded IDM for 5 years now without issue. I'll probably just get one from Swamps though if I ever need another. The difference is pretty noticeable on the OBS.

    I installed a Swamps IDM when I did my injectors so I am not sure if it made a big improvement. I am happy with the way she runs

    I had very little turbo lag in the first place. But, yes, it will help.

    Your always welcome to try mine.
