I just ordered the "High-Idle Mod" from gmdieseltech.com.
Just wondering If anyone else has Installed this mod either with the kit or just by buying it piece-meal?
Was it hard? :confused:

it is pretty easy. the hardest part is getting the wire through the firewall. I did it on my truck and it took me about a little over an hour because of the firewall, but I forgot I already had a wire running through for my programmer.

I see snow in your pictures ob...I cant wait for winter!!!

lem..the High-Idle MOD is what the name implys..It uses a feature ment for a PTO application and uses your cruise control as the control for it...similiar to 04+ cummins dodges (on the dodges all it takes is a quick dealer program)

Yeah, the picture is from this last spring. Snow should be flying before the end of september here. I hope we have a good snow year so I can put more miles on my snowmachine.

Alaska..that would explain the snow in september..as you can see im from NH no snow until NOV/DEC :mad: im curious as to how the dmax will do. Im sure there wont be any problems like I had with my 6.5. I had worked through most of its cold start problem before I sold it though...figures, right? :p

dmaxpwr: Yes the Clifford you can push a button and then take the key out. I can start the truck from about 1/4 mile away if there is a good straight line of sight to it. I think it is set up to run for 20 minutes before shutting off. (I can go up to 1 hr because of it being a diesel) I also have the truck button to activate my high idle.

LEM: I'm not too sure on the hp. I know the TST is good for about 140 hp and 360 lb/ft of torque. The bully dog is only good for about 90 or 120...I don't have it unlocked for the 155hp. The two programmers don't play real well together. I have a loud timing rattle when I run the 2 on lower levels together. Besides, I am still on my stock tranny and exhaust. I will either put a high flow muffler on or just go straight pipe until I get down to the lower 48. Shipping up here kills.

I let someone else install it. I have tried to install remote starts in my past 2 trucks, but they never worked. I think I had a problem with the theftlock module. I ended up getting a pretty good deal for up here in Alaska. I paid $550 installed for the RSX 1.5. This is the 2 way paging with the LCD remote. So, I know when it is started without having to look and make sure. Besides, if the system is installed by and authorized dealer, you get a lifetime warrenty on it. There are tons of installers across the US that install directed electronics (makers of clifford, viper, etc.). Check out directed.com.
