IDM mod with DP tuner- want feedback

I was thinking about doing the IDM mod, should I? I have the DP tuner in my F-350 truck, will the IDM mod work with it ok?

I was also thinking of doing this to my E-350 van... it's stock as of now... it's always been sluggish, hates to run untill fully warmed up...

Just looking for any ideas and or feed back... thanks!

anybody got any comments on this? I've searched, read the post, read the 'how-to', just don't know if it's worth it... thought maybe it would help my truck fire up faster, seems to crank over a few times before it fires up...

I was gonna do the mod myself, no worries there, just wondering if it's worth it, if it's gonna help my cranking/start up issue...
I'll look into pickin' swamp's brain, need to look up a phone #.... thanks for the tip...

I run Dp-Tuner and an IDM mod and I have no issues, in fact, most high hp guys are running a modded IDM on their trucks.

So it's likely that doing this IDM mod will help with faster starts, and not work against or hinder the DP tuner in any way?
