idm mod

i am finally going to try and do the idm mod to my truck soon. a generous psn member sent me the resistor a long time ago but i would like to test the resistor before i put it in. i have a multi meter, can i test it with that to make sure its the right one?

Re: idm mod

I couldnt remember if it was me . Just take your time and use a good soldering gun and it will be easy.

Re: idm mod

Swamp has a great write-up on the IDM mod.

IDM Overview

*The 'original' JoeServo mod just increased the voltage of the IDM.

Re: idm mod

Is there any power to be had in this? Swamps claims 30 rwhp from their modified IDM's on a mild 7.3...
