Factory high idle

So my 7.3 would go to 1100 rpm high idle pretty quick , 1-2 minutes, after I start it when it's cold out.

So far my 6.7 hasn't done it.

How about you guys on stock trucks?

I found out that it has to be COLD!! Like mine sat for 3 days in temps bellow 25 degrees not plugged in and when I started it, it went into high idle warm up for the first time.

I've never had mine do it either. Of course I try not to idle too much. I'd sooner just putt down the road (if you can) like a old man for a little while. It will heat up way faster then letting it idle

Correctomundo! I have been doing this since August of 2011 starting with my 6.7L regular cab. No need for a sup. cab heater driving this way either.

Mine goes on to high idle almost every time I start it lately. I'm wishing I had the supplemental heater to take the chill off, sometimes it's 20 min of driving before mine starts blowing heat...sometimes longer when it's 0* or less.
