Ficmrepair.com A++++++

I sent my ficm in for repair last week. I have gone through four batteries in the last three years.. And I've been having terrible cold start issues. just been getting worse and worse. i had a feeling it was the ficm because of one the battery isuues and two my truck runs great other than in the morning or after it sits for a few hours. Yes I know there are way more things that could have been wrong.. But thanks to my fellow org members my issues seem to match a lot of your guys' issues as well. The only code i was throwing was p0269 if i recall correctly. I didn't trust myself testing it so I just took it off and sent it in. I paid for express shipping and had them put the atlas 40 tune on. Ed had it repaired on Friday night and sent it out Saturday, I got it Monday and had it all buckled back up in about twenty minutes! I was so anxious to test drive I forgot one of the hoses to the degas bottle stupid me lol anyways to sum it all up truck runs better than ever starts up with fewer cranks and no more rough idle in the mornings! Going to be doing mpgs soon will post results once I've had it on there for a bit. Oh and acceleration is much improved! Ficmrepair.com great job! Recommend them to everyone!

It's about, as long as I keep my foot out of it! The turbo spools much faster engine runs so much better feels much smoother love it! Should have done it sooner.
