did the IDM mod today

Once I got the back off, I looked at the old resistor. Holy crap that is small. If you don't have a steady hand i don't think it would be a good idea to try it. The old resistor is the size of the (In God We Trust) on an older quarter. Only burn't myself twice with the iron .

I think it was well worth doing. if you have a steady hand give it a try. I soldered in high-school but that was it. not hard to do, just don't rush

I used a borrowed SD IDM which had been modded, and it slowed my truck down by around 0.3 sec and 0.9 mph in the ¼-mile compared to stock! The modded IDM felt more responsive down low, but was lacking in midrange power. When I get some spare time, I plan to make a breakout harness so I can monitor the output to the injectors with an oscilloscope. I'd be curious to hear anyone else's dragstrip or dyno numbers on this mod.
