high voltage idm

I was looking on swamps website and saw a high voltage idm. What kind of performance gains do you get with them. My truck is no where near stock. Is there a program out there for my laptop to plug into the truck so i can make adjustments to the programing. This is strictly a pulling truck.

I don't have one yet, I've heard the swamps idm makes a noticeable difference but its going to vary based on injector size. What size injectors does it have?

You can call php and talk to them about there tuning software or Google sniper tuning. Those are the only 2 ways to tune it yourself as far as I know.

Swamps HiFi IDM is great for much larger injectors. If your running stock to intermediately oversized injectors then the HiFi isn't worth it, just get the standard 140v. Or do the $5 resistor mood yourself.

They all actually put out 110v, per swamps. You'll notice drovability differences but you probably won't see much HP gain with stock injectors.

Very little performance gains especially with a pretty much stock engine. What you will gain is maintenance related. It has more to do with Ohm's Law. V=I*R. When you increase voltage on a circuit you will lower the impedance (current or amps). This in turn puts less heat through your wire harness under the valve covers. Also upping the voltage to the injectors also helps them actuate quicker and firmer, hence they operate more efficient. Where you may notice it is in the higher RPM range.

Ironically I just did the IDM mod on my e99 friday that had the 110v. Haven't had the opportunity to try it out yet as I had to work all weekend and took another day to get it back together and let the sealant set up for 24hrs. It will be together tomorrow though.

yeah let us know how it does in the 99. I have also heard that you will notice a touchier throttle. Is that true on stock injectors? I wouldn't mind a touchy throttle. I love php tunes but the throttle is stockish to me until half or more.
