IDM from Beans

I searched the forum and could not find a definate YES it is worth the $150.00...

Has anyone done it to an 01' and saw a noticable increase?

what they do is a little more involved than the DIY mod i did. with that being said, i would do the IDM over and over again. my truck starts quicker and gained a little throttle response. engine seems to sound a little crisper. no gain on the butt dyno. hope this helps.

I've heard what the above guy said. Most of it is throttle response and maybe some power in the mid rpms but nothing substantial. I will be doing this mod very soon.

I was wondering about that, Chip takes care of the voltage increase to the IDM?

No, the IDM increase (and here I'd say Swamps with their HiFreq/HiVolt mod is better) has Nothing to do with the PCM. You'll still see a benefit with a modded IMD when you add programming (the injectors kinda become more "efficient").

Here's the thing though, the biggest increases (you know, the ones they all advertize) all come from replacing the old, 100v, IDM's. You'll not get that 30hp addition over a 120v one...
