BD High Idle kit

Has anyone installed this? I'm about to order one for my 15'. Searched and found one thread but was lacking on info. Thanks for the help.

I'm not sure on the 15's although I suspect they haven't changed from 11-14. These trucks already have the provision for high idle in the PCM. It's a matter of hooking up a couple of wires and adding a simple resistor to set the desired RPM. I hooked it up to upfitter 4 and can't remember off hand what value resistor used but it's set to idle at 1200rpm. Works great!

It's a simple quick mod, somewhere down on this thread are instructions. I bet it is the exact same for the 15's.

I installed one in my 14, very straight forward install. Took about 30 min. Works Great.

If you have the upfitter switches you wouldn't need this kit. If not then go for it.

There are numerous threads on this site or or the Ford diesel websites on how to do your own High Idle or SEIC.

http://www.thedieselstop.com/forums/...ctures-268611/

They have taken the info from this Ford bulletin and put it in a kit form

https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckbbas...tml/Q180R4.pdf

Many use a 50k potentiometer from Radio Shack to make their own SEIC. I just did this on my 2015. Cost was about $10 to include potentiometer, and wire splices. I got fancy and used wire splices you can pull apart. I also soldered short wires to the potentiometer.

That kit looks like a potentiometer that wires into the SEIC the same as if you bought one from Radio Shack and did it yourself. I don't have any experience with that kit, but I know the same thing can be done for a lot less than $57 dollars.
