Factory Ford??

Ok so im a little new to all this but I have a quick question. I have looked around a little online but no luck. Im looking at buying a 1996 F250 with the powerstroke and 5 speed. It has a factory ford power tuner. Im really not sure anything about it and was wondering if anyone could shed some light. Thanks.

Pretty sure there is no "Factory tuner" of any kind.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.

Well thats what I thought but its kinda a big black box and it has ford all over it. Its mounted just in front of the gear shift. Its about 8"x8"x about 4" deep.

That would be the factory Auxiliary Idle Controller.

It's not a tuner, but it will allow you to set the idle.

It's if you want it to warm up faster in the winter, run the A/C while sitting still in the summer or to idle up for a PTO or a winch.
