I think this is what you are referring to:

Diesel Movies - I install a 10k resistor in the ICP sensor of a 2001 F250 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel.

Not in a powerstroke. Maybe a common rail but not in our trucks. Find out from whoever you herd this from what they were talking about and what truck.

So ask you friends and educate us on what the heck it is. Because it is nothing I have herd of before.
