    Default Tuning LBZ Elevated Idle

    Ok, here is my problem. The LLY's have a spot in the tuning software where you are able to tune the elevated idle. This is somthing that I like to do with my trucks as it simply put raises the oil pressure up to a spot that makes me feel better.

    What I have done on the LLY's is tune it so at any temp the elevated idle increases to 900rpm. More or less, the truck always evelates the idle untill you step on the pedal, then it lowers it back to a safe range to sel

    Problem:
    I just bought an 07 Classic and would like to tune it to ramp up the elevated idle all the time like my other trucks.

    This table is not available on the LBZ tuning that I can find.

    Is this an option that I can find elsewere in the tuning software????

    It's something we have been looking to add for a while, the necessary parameters will be added in at some stage.

    Can it not be done with B0701? Desired base idle speed dependent on engine coolant temperature.
    or is that LMM specific?

    Not really the right table to mod. That would increase the total idle speed on the motor. Making that say 1200 rpm for instance would make the truck rather undriveable on the street as while your sitting at a light, it would be at 1200 rpm and trying to blow through the brakes.

    What I am trying to do is just mod the elevated idle speed to make it idle up when the truck sits for like 30 seconds and the elevated idle would normally come on, then when you apply the brake, it will automaticlly decline allowing you to drive the truck normal.

    what year is your truck? I have not heard of any trucks that they have done away with the Elevated Idle on. Is it just not showing in your DIC?
