    Factory high idle works in the similar conditions and its 1200 so gde high idle would make no difference for him. But the bd high idle switch is exactly what he is looking for.

    WELCOME - First post!

    Curious if you want a continuous high idle or just the high idle you get when starting up cold.

    I have GDE but do not have their high idle option. Every time I start up the darn thing idles fast. When I put it in reverse to back out of the garage the darn thing takes off so fast I have to slam on the brakes or immediately switch to neutral to idle out of the garage and coast a bit. To me the high idle is a pain. Bet I can go 5-10 mph on the flat until that idle finally drops down.

    To me the high idle is not wanted. Curious as to why you want it.

    How fast is your idle? I barely move in reverse, usually have to bump the go pedal to get it moving. For me it's common to be able to idle and not move(without brakes) or creep along.

    This sounds odd... i don't notice issues with high idle and gear engagement. In fact, as soon as i rotate the knob, the idle drops. I don't use GDE's high idle either.

    Capt's Post didn't make sense to me either, but my ED had remote start so I always started it and let it idle for several minutes. Capt's truck is key start ,so maybe that's the difference in high idling? VS remote start? Just guessing
