It helps to warm the truck up quicker in cold temps and also the opposite , during hot weather, when idling you can bump the idle up to alow the a/c compressor to spin faster and enable better a/c output. Its an easy mod to accomplish and I use mine quite a bit actually.

That mod is for 6.0s only the only way to get a 7.3 to high idle is to get like a tw chip with a high idle burn
