Diesel Movies - I install a 10k resistor in the ICP sensor of a 2001 F250 7.3L Powerstroke Diesel.

Here is a video of the 10K mod.

And don't trust your overhead display. It only measures basically how far you push your pedal down. with a mod that increases oil pressure and gives you better throttle response, you're not going to push the pedal down as far...

hand calc it...
