Safe to re-install SCT after FICM/FI replacement?

Just spent butt load of money getting my FICM and #6 injector replaced. I have 12 mo 12k mile warranty on parts and labor. I wanted to get your opionions if I should ride stock for awhile, or if its safe to re-install my SCT.

I have the itch to put it back on, but curious to know if my SCT might of helped cause the failed FICM and injector. I know that the FICMs fail a lot on the 6.0, just want to make sure.

Im running Erics Xtreeme Street

You should be fine. These FICM's go out on their own even without tuning.

FICM goes and you will definitely have codes. Without codes, it is VERY likely you have a mechanical failure.

I paid $685 for a reman from dealer. I also had no codes, and never got a check engine light. Tech also found that #6 FI was bad. It gradually got worse from running like **** for the first 10 mins, to not able to even start. I tried pulling codes w my SCT, but never had one.

I spent around 900 for parts and about 900 for labor. I wish I new more about diesels

no he didnt get any codes either. I was running my SCT in tow mode at the time it wouldnt start, checked for codes....didnt have any. i then took it back to stock and tried to start it and it still wouldnt. this is when i had it towed to dealer.

If i could of pulled the codes, i prob would of saved a lot of money by researching on here and doing the fix myself....but since I had no clue what the prob was, I dished out my hard earned green
