AIC Module

Im considering the stock aic module vs the diy aic or a programmed 6 pos chip. I would love to get a chip but 400 isn't really in the budget right now. So I have a couple different questions.

Does anyone know of somewhere reputable to get the stock module other than ebay?

I also have a question about custom tunes. If the module doesnt work out I would like to get a 6 pos chip down the road. I know theres several different tunes you can choose: tow, high idle, economy ect. But I have been looking around trying to find a place that I can customize what rpm for the high idle runs at...I would like it to be around 900-1000rpm. But everywhere ive been looking: beans diesel ect I havent seen anything about custom tunes in that manner.

Anyone seen anything like that ?

Hopefully I can find a module somewhere though for now. From what I understand the stock module that comes in some trucks allow you to high idle on demand at certain rpm intervals regardless of temperatures, parking brake ect?

correct me if im wrong Thanks in advance.

The tuner can write a high idle tune for whatever RPM you want.
The AIC will idle up depending on what you want. Temps, voltage, or whatever speed you want.

Yea, thought you were talking about that too. That is the AIC. No other one.

Sometimes there's used ones that pop up here for $100 or so.
But unless you want the ability to change the idle or the other options, a tune is fine.
