FICM Suggestions

well after seeing 34.5 volts this morning its time to replace it. it always climbs to 48.5 but i dont feel like waiting on it to get so bad my truck wont start. i am wanting a performance tune one way or another. whats the bonus of 48V over 58V

I got mine fixed by FICMREPAIR.com with the atlas 80 tune. The truck loves it but Im probably gonna go with the atlas 40 soon. EGT's with the 80 a bit to high.
I do have a extra ficm sitting at the house and as $ allow's me to Im gonna go with the BPD power side probably the 6 phase and send the whole mess to ed to get the atlas 40.

that sounds like a sweet plan. so ficmrepair can add a tune there? does it have to get a reflash or does it come back ready to plug in?

Its a plug n play type of thing. I was very pleased with it. If I wasnt gonna tow with the truck I would just leave the Atlas 80.

Ed can add it while hes repairing it.

He can also flash it directly to the truck

I'm not sure about the other options as far as a repaired one with or with out tunes, but i do know that after having replaced my original one with a Swamps unit and then going with a BPD FICM, I would say BPD hands down. My Swamps unit was starting to go out on me after a year or so. I swapped it out with a BPD 48v and my truck has never been happier. I plan on doing a FICM tune for the unit sometime in the future, but for now I am extremely happy with what I have.
