Well Gang, 

 

 

The Board of Directors on the Mopar1973Man.com has decided that we need to produce some new High Idle Switches for the 2nd gen 24V Cummins.  We have spent a considerable amount of time designing a Brand New High Idle / MPG fooler Switch.  

 

We have learned from the last switch design and have made significant improvements.  The New High Idle / MPG Fooler switch will be the same price as before, but it will be more robust and modular to allow for easier install.  

 

We have decided to only offer a "Install Anywhere  Kit" rather than a gauge mount or Cubby Mount.  You will nly have to drill one 1/4" hole to allow for the fitment of the switch.  

 

Some teaser pictures.

We are making 50 switches to start then another run of 50 after that.  You can order them from The Mopar1973Man.com Store I expect to have them ready to ship within a 6 week time.

The problem is that Cummins originally set up the high idle software for some serious cold temperatures. So normal Joe would have to be in these conditions to get it to start. So with a bit of tinkering I found a way of controlling when and where the high idle software is started.

So if you select 6 cylinder it raises the idle RPM to 1,200 RPM and holds till 175*F then cancels. If you select 3 cylinder mode then it cuts 1,2,3 and fires only on 4,5,6 creating virtual loading on the engine and warms up faster. Still the same it ramps up to 1,200 RPM but with 3 dead cylinders. Now toss a exhaust brake on top and enhance the warm up time to less than 10-12 minutes in -25*F temperatures the engine coolant will be 175*F.

I stopped into DAP to buy my injectors and asked if they still had any of these for purchase.  I guess I'll get in line with the rest of you and wait until these are available.  Hopefully the bank is in a good mood that day so I can pull the trigger and buy one.
