IDM fix the 110 I have or get a 120?

Is there a definite advantage to getting a IDM-120, or is IDM-110 great, too? This is the crux of my question. I am going to have Swamps re-build/build me a High voltage and high frequency IDM, but I can send in either my 100, my 110, or get a 120 and send that in if it is best. Thanks.


I had some rough running (code po 475 for exhaust pressure) and swapped my IDM-100 in for the IDM-110 original to the truck (I think, 3rd owner) and that cleared everything up except the cruise cutting out, which was the low brake fluid (slow leak at master, maybe should fix?).
So, now it's running tops but I want to have a spare IDM handy and figured I may as well get the Swamps' higher voltage and higher frequency IDM, not their regular version. Later I will chip it, add baby swamp injectors and pyro guage. Has 4" turbo back, K&N, 6.0 cooler and full built trans (figured I'd start there, need it reliable every day, thus a 1997, not new, no chance after the 6.0MG).

7.3, 08/1997 build. Heavy Duty F250,
stock Off-Road package (4WD), 4.10, gold, black full length steel step bar.
EO4D rebuilt (just to be sure), 6.0 cooler, deeper pan, Schaeffer synthetic.
K & N, to 3" downtube, to 4" SS

Nokian snow tires.
Snap-On scanner.

Antique Golf diesel. Made here in PA. 0-60 in less than a minute. Volt. Wrangler.

Save your money. That idm is only more beneficial for higher HP applications.

If you want it done, send it to Jonathan at Diesel Technologies of Chattanooga. He left Swamps due to a falling out. He's the one who came up with the HiFi IDM anyway.

Wow, Swamps will regret that!

I talked to Jon when my Hydra was having a problem. He found a failed capacitor and fixed it. All I could get out of Jay was "it's all proprietary".

Thanks for that bit of info Corey, good to know.
