High Idle Mod

I have a 2006 F250, and want to perform a high idle mod to eliminate wet stacking for the rare occasion that I let the truck idle i.e. speeding warm up in cold weather, running into the store to keep the air conditioner cold, etc. I have stock up fitter switches and want to use the "aux" 4 switch. In the up- fitter wiring bundle, what color do I select for a this switch? Also, with regards to the PCM wiring bundle, do I use the PTO wire that does the high idle and puts a slight load on the engine by locking out the torque converter, or do I use the wire that engages the SEIC Strategy (high idle) only. I would prefer not to use the PTO high idle option if unnecessary due to excessive transmission fluid viscosity breakdown, but will if necessary. What color would the wires be for either option above (PTO vs. SEIC only), and which option would be best suited for wet stack prevention? Thanks in advance for any help that could be provided.

Just a thought but you mentioned that you would use it to help keep the ac cool. Check out the MANUAL FAN CONTROL mod. Basiclly you run a ground switch on I believe the blue wire on the fan wire bundle (might wanna double check that color). And with a simple flick of the switch you have 100% fan. I found in the summer that I would use this a lot while on the family camping trip. You know stop for a pee break at the rest area,flip the switch and by the time your back in the truck the ac is COOOOOLD and the truck temps are all chilled out. I actually use it more that the high idle mod.

2006 hi-idle, without locking the torque converter.. apply 12 volts to the purple wire with a white tracer in the bundle of wires above the e-brake pedal. (SEIC)
