high idle mod??

i have a 06 6.0 and i was wondering why i would need to do a high idle mod. my truck allready goes in to a high idle when its cold.

As I Ride through the valleys of SUVs and riceburners, I shall fear no evil, for torque and positraction are mine. Mine eight rods, eight pistons and diesel power, they comfort me. For therein lies mine power, and glory, and salvation, forever

will prevent wet stacking as well , and if you run a winch or ever jump someone its nice to hit the switch, there is a reason that this was an option on these trucks/

Basically it's a wet, oily looking residue that gets in the exhaust system from extended idling or low rpm use.

It can cause higher fuel consumption, oil consumption, cylinder glazing and just leave unburnt fuel in all the exhaust components.

High idle just helps to avoid any of these problems.

so anytime your going to be at idle for an extended period of time you just flip the switch and turn the high idle on? ad its better for your truck?

I've always thought it was more for the person who idled extensively (more than just a few minutes at a time) and often (like a delivery driver or maintenance truck), but that's just my opinion and really isn't worth a whole lot!

But fact is, it's an easy and extremely cheap mod to do if you already have the upfitter switches; it does help the engine in the long run if you do idle a lot so there's really no reason not to try it if you want to. It won't hurt a thing. I did it just to say I did, as I hardly ever idle a lot but to me the hardest part is to remember to use the parking brake!
