I aint never heard of a PCM mod or putting resistors in the PCM. I've heard of the IDM mod though, and it wont hurt the predator. I really like the diagnostic capabilities of my predator, that’s why I kept it after getting the flip chip.

If I aint mistaken the 10 K mod is a resistor on the ICP sensor that just fools the computer into raising high oil pressure. The predator on max will already raise the oil pressure anyway so the resistor will likely be useless. The predator does not touch anything but the PCM so it should not be affected by anything but the PCM. I know it will get grouchy if you try to program a truck that already has a chip in it.
