High idle mod time, few questions

Like the title, I'm ready to save my truck from this wretched winter and do the mod. Does anyone have pics of the finished mod? Would I be using the BCP wire to keep the rpm at 1200 or do I use the SEIC wire so it can vary? I just assumed the BCP wire because I personally haven't heard a truck high idle around 1800-2400 rpm, that would be for emergency vehicles correct?
How does the BCP wire know to limit the rpm? Why couldn't Ford have installed this for us? :p

Anyways thats all I got. Thanks!

Hooking up high idle w/upfitter switches - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

High Idle Mod

These are pretty good write ups. One has some pics the components and locations too. The other one explains the difference in the two wires. It takes 20 mins tops.

Agreed. Really simple mod. I used the BCP wire like was suggested in on of the HOWTOs. Works like a champ!

Here's a (crappy) pic of mine:

I don't have a switch on my high idle at all. I found a 12 volt source that is switched on with the key. I installed an inline fuse in the feed and connected it to the purple with a green stripe wire. Now, every time I set my e-brake, have the truck in park, and keep my foot off the regular brake, my high idle kicks in by itself.

I used my e-brake for my switch also. I use the BPM wire, as I have to jump-start equipment from time to time and it works like its supposed to.

Im wanting to do this mod but was wondering, if i hook it up to my upfitter switch will i still need to apply parking break on my 05? Also in winter when my truck is cold it will high idle by itself (assuming factory as its done this since ive had it) and once it warms up it idles back down. Will this feature still work normal when upfitter switch is off?

I like the idea of the e brake being the switch, kinda seems pointless to have two switches. I was reading the write up in the 6.0 mod section, Engine Idle Mod (How To With Pics) basically as i understand the write up your just connecting the the 2 wires together with a switch in the middle, couldn't you just connect the 2 wires so there always "on" then the e brake would be the only switch?

Yes you need to still apply the parking brake. The truck will auto 'idle up' to about 1000 after 130 seconds I believe, the BCP high idle mod gives you the option of bumping it up to 1200 (or higher if it needs to). The auto 'idle up' will still work when the upfitter is off.

I'm pretty sure that is what NYC is saying, he hooked the BCP wire a power source and then the only switch is the e-brake.

I don,t have upfitter switches I just used a toggle, but my factory high idle still works. I usually wait till it kicks on till I flip my switch on, since it is set to kick on at that temp I figure it is a good time to kick it up a notch.
