High Idle?

Do we have a stock mini-high idle???

Just curious cuz that last few mornings I have idled my truck and then when I get in and hit the brakes it drops from around 1000rpm back down to 700-800 or whatever the normal idle is ... just curious ... I've only had this truck a few months and was just curious if the Previous owner might had something in there not stock

when its colder out the truck will idle up to help warm up. during this time you probably heard some hissing too. that is the exhaust bypass valve on the exit of the turbo closing to help warm up.

Okay ... thanks for the response ... I wuz just curious ... still trying to figure out what the previous owner has done ... I have figured out that he (PO) has not done alot of maintenance and have had a few things needing to be fixed ... but all in all I LOVE MY TRUCK

The first thing you should with ANY new toy is change all the fluids and filters.

I would also change the coolant to a EC-1 rated coolant. I am goingto do this as soon as it warms up a bit.

So why do people do the foil delete? Is it just for looks or is there another purpose I've been looking for the answer but haven't found it
