High idle mod....How???

Tell me about the high idle mod, and while we are at it, what other mods are popular for the '05 6.0? Thanks...
So far I am stock, with the exception of the triple dog bullydog. No, I don't have guages. I am running under the radar so to speak.

High idle is a very easy mod where basically you attach a toggle switch between the "hot" wire behind your OBDII port to your PTO power wire behind your fuse panel. All 03 and up SD's are wired from the factory with a PTO bundle. Once you have the jumper in place, step on the emergency brake and flip the switch. Your truck will idle up to about 1200 rpm. This one's a good idea for anybody who idles their truck for long periods of time. I did this to my truck for about $5 for the wire and switch. Another freeby mod is the zoodad, which is where you cut a hole in your fiberglass radiator support behind the front grill and directly in front of the air filter housing. Gives you a fresh source of cool outside air to draw in. Most people put up a screen of some sort over the hole too to keep things out.

Air Dog 150, ITP reg. return
Bulletproof oil bypass system
Banks technicooler
Ride rite air springs in the rear
EGT, boost, and fuel pressure gauges by DiProcol on the pillar

Plus a few other odds and ends...
