Question another ficm inquiry

Hi guys got a ficm question for you all. Let me start by saying thanks to
dhanna6powerstroke for your help in diagnosing my problem it was a lot of help. Now on to my question. I have contacted 1/2 dozen shops/techs about what my options are to replace/repair my ficm. I'm getting a lot of differing opinions and wanted to see what the consensus was here. I'm looking at a few options: option 1 is sending it to bulletproof diesel for repair option 2 is a new unit from the Ford Dealer option 3 is a new unit from Ford with an aggressive tune to help save the unit plus help the truck run better from Little Power Shop in PA and option 4 is the 58v unit from Swap Diesel. I don't have much info about the Swamp unit as they are closed this week. I'm not in a huge rush, I'm off all week plus with the beautiful weather here in So Cal I can ride my Harley, so if waiting is the answer I'm ok, just really want to get my truck back up and running before the weather changes again. Thanks in advance for any input/insight you guys have, and thanks again to dhanna6powerstroke.

IMHO I would stay away from the 58v option that make the unit any hotter than it already gets.
