FICM questions

Hey guys my 04 6.0 F-350 was shuddering at about 1900 rpm it was hard starting about a week or so before that now its shuddering and blowing smoke around 1500rpm I'm going to check the voltage at the FICM this weekend my question is if its bad should I replace it with a stock part or go aftermarket and if so what type? the truck does some moderate towing and once in a while heavy towing. I do not use it every day. Any suggestions are appreciated

look into the bullet proof diesel half shell. i think its by far the best deal and best bang for your buck.

the bullet proof diesel half shell says its just the power supply does that mean I just un-plug the stock one and then plug this one in bolt it down and its ready to roll? I also noticed it ups the volts to 53 or 58 whats the purpose for that and will it put added stress on the injectors?

most people go the 48V the 53/58 is just for your own personal peace of mind.

yes its just the side that goes bad 95 percent of the time. you unbolt the old one remove the 4 screws under inspection plate separate the halves and put it back together. piece of cake.

Go with the standard 48V bullet proof PS. 529.00 delivered to the door in 3 or 4 days. Love mine, did it a month ago. Voltages are rock solid 48.5. I don't Know what ED replaces in these things and what he leaves, but for about the same money I want all new everything.
