Dunno, I usually start it, then throw the switch.

to tell you the truth, you could go to the wire direct. Then use the parking brake for your switch. At least thats how mine works.

As long as you give it time to get the oil pressure up, it shouldn't hurt anything. I usually wait like 30 seconds.

I thought all 6.0L came with the high idle, mine idles up to 1000 or 1200 rpm when it gets down to like 30 deg.

there is a big difference between the factory cold idle, and the "high idle mod" that can be done. i believe it is more like 1800rpm.

and you would want to at least wait about 10-15 seconds to make sure the oil pressure is good and everything is lubricated.
