Talking Variable Resistor Mod!!

Just completed my variable resistor mod and its great.. what i did was bought a 10k audio potentiometer for 2.00 at radio shack some 12 gauge wire and spliced it into the IDM sensor and presto..Now all i got to do is trun the switch off and its stock...turn the switch up and the less resistence i get. works quite well.

The highest setting is 10k being that its a set potentiometer but and the lowest is zero am guessing..when i started the truck the first time i put the knob in the middle then turned it one way and the truck was normal turned it the other way a juiced the injectors..then i turned a little bit more and the truck died, so am guessing its zero.

Am thinkin you mean like a resistor in the idm plug on a switch If so yea its like that but instead the resistor is replaced with a knob type adustment as to create more or less resistence.
