10K mod Installed!!!

O.K. I am just starting to mod my truck, love this site, and still learning. Saw the post on the DIY 10K mod, and figuring I am an Electronics Tech in the Navy, I have all the parts and skill (not much LOL) to do this mod. SOOO bored here at work, found the resistor, wire, heat shrink and awesome step by step install and Easiest HP in the world for NOTHING!!! Didn't know if I would really be able to tell the difference, but I WAS WRONG. Nothing like smoking some 35x12.50 tires!!! Dual 100 ft marks on the road is a beautiful site!! Love this site more and more!!!! Thanks to everyone who has educated me! CAN'T wait to do more! Gotta sweet talk the wife for some play money! Need guages and full exhaust soon!!

I did the 10k, I only noticed a little more smoke and able to chirp the tires w/o the brakes now.

I only used the resistor, folded over into the ICP and some tape... didn't need any heat shrink or extra wire.

Glad you like it!!!


... now I just can't wait for injectors and a chip.

I followed the instructions, and nothing... nada... zip. zero. absolutely no change in my truck at all. I checked everything twice and no change. Am I missing something here?

Biggest thing I can say is double check your connections, and make sure you used the correct resistor. If it isn't right, it won't work. Needs to be a 10K ohm resistor, with a power rating of 1/2 to 1/4 watt I believe. Refer to other posts for the step by step directions. If you get it right you should know it. For me, while in gear, the truck does idle a little higher about 950rpms and I can REALLY feel the low end power alot more, and puts out more smoke when I get in the throttle down low. Good luck and hope it works out for ya!!
