Well there Mr. ironic mover, if you are so perfect and talented when it comes to the 6.0L, then ive got one question for you... whay dont you answer the OPs post? the cold high idle is programmed in the PCM, as with the 7.3L, and when low temp parameters are met, the computer automatically idles the engine up to about 1000 rpm, which im sure you know Iron man. we all know what that does... makes heat. anyways, what Ol' Iro was going to tell you since he is so great at stating that 7.3s and 6.0 are different sizes and not the same program and what not, is that yes, on top of the cold high idle, you can make a DIY high idle control that will make your engine idle up to 1200 rpm!!!!! WootWoot!
well, lets brake it down. its actually a PTO Idle Control that is Pre-wired into your harness under the dash that you can wire a toggle switch in with the corresponding return wire that the PTO would normally hook up to and poof! high idle on demand! but Ol' EmoMover forgot that this is a forum for helping other powerstroke owners out to the best of ones abilities. sorry your 6.0L buddy wouldnt tell you that you can make your own high idle control and that the cold idle is normal...besides, why should someone so knowledgeable share his brains when he can feel superior!!!?
sorry OP for putting you in the middle of this, but hopefully you found some answers... as for the baffle that the 7.3 has to create pressure on the engin, i do not know if your 6.0 has that, but like ol leadhead said, its a 6.0 not a 7.3...
