Injector driver Module, It tells the injecotrs what the heck to do, like when to fire and how long to stay open for. What year is the truck with the "bad" IDM?

Injector Drive Module... I believe.. and I would say that you can... I am gonna be dong the IDM MOD to my truck soon... talked to a guy that says it does give u a little more power and for how cheap it is.. you can't really beat it... but I wouldn't buy anything from a dealer unless you had to.. they are almost all the time most expensive out there..
