loope idle

I read about this on another post. What is the purpose of a loope idle??
I understand its not a constant idle, it jumps.

Thanks

I have no idea really, but to make a guess, its to keep everything flowing good rather than just having soot build up inside the engine while idling for a long time.

I don't think the lope is intentional. Aggressive cams can cause the lope, just like on gas engines. Huge sticks could do it too.

Yes its intentional. Its in the tuning........ 6.0's dont lope unless you tune them that way, if so then Shawn should have a lope idle, as well as Jeremy, and the Guys at Elite that are all running over 300cc injectors cams etc they dont lope.

he's right. a very aggressive tune can cause a lope too, but the lope tune is mostly for show, to sound like a pulling truck and get a little intimidation going
