Arrow FICM Programming- Anyone done it?

Who has done it to their truck? Was it worthwhile?

My FICM is fried. I was looking at Power Hungry Performance to program a new to me FICM.

I am guessing I'd have to get a new tune for my livewire to work with the new FICM programming?

Very curious- I might order one off of ebay and have PHP program the new FICM....

Let me know thoughts.

I'll be calling PHP once they open, but thats 3 hrs away from now, hopefully someone here has some helpful info first.

I had mine tuned from innovative, it gave better throttle response, A little more low end power, and a slight improvement in milage. I would do it again without a doubt.

FICM reprogramming

I talked to PHP yesterday and have arranged to get my FICM reprogrammed by them this Saturday while they are at Dynomite Deisel in Monroe WA this weekend. Will also be getting Gryphon upgrade and custom tunes. Will let you know how much deferance there is to the stock programming. My FICM was replaced under warranty earlier this year so it probably has Fords latest program in it.

I run the PHP FICM and it has given me back the low-end power. Since you are considering this you might want to consider Innovative Diesel for both the FICM and SCT tuning.

Dirk-

I am gonna just do it. Have to wait for the FICM to come from CA first, then have to ship it to PHP and wait til I get it back. Hopefully by Wednesday of next week I can have the truck going. Thats IF all works out with shipping..
