110 or 120 idm in a 96 7.3

I need to put in a new Idm in my truck, I can buy either a 110 or 120, the 110 is what is recommended but I have seen on this site that guys are using the 120 or modifying there 110, could the 120 damage the wires or injectors in any way? the price is the same for either idm. gotta drive 3000 miles over the next couple of days, what should I do.

ANY 7.3 IDM will work, the 120's will give a little better idle. BTW there is no voltage difference, it's just the model number.

I bought and installed the 120 and unfortunately it did not fix the trouble with my truck. For some reason, when the idm is bolted to the sidewall, the left bank of cylinders doesn't fire, when its not bolted on, the truck runs great, but there is current on the idm housing. If anybody can help, please let me know, I am in the midst of a 3000 mile journey, hoping the truck stays running.

what about some rubber feet between the housing and sidewall? are you sure you dotn have a short that only makes connection when the harness is positioned to reach the bolted on idm?
