High Idle for early 99

Can we put a high idle mod on the early 99? I saw one for the newer trucks but can't find any thing for mine. Thanks!

Can you leave the POT at the high idle of your choice and then just shut off the switch? That way when you turn the switch back on it will go back to the last high idle setting you already had?

That's the idea. A cheap POT ( $6 Radio Shack) has a lot of variance every time you power up.

Here's the one I used

High Idle Mod

If I did it again, I would delete one of the pots. Its not really needed.
I second the better pot tho. Find a good one.
