PHP FICM Program

Man just ordered my FICM program and it's going to take 6 weeks to get done,,,grrr. I can't afford to have my truck down, so I opted for PHP to send me their remote programmer and since they only have 10 to shell out theres a wait. Oh well, I'm not in that big of a hurry. Anyone else using their FICM programming? If so how do you like it? Will I have to get my tunes redone with the programming?

No, your tunes will be fine. You could overnight your FICM to Bill, have him program it and overnight it back and only be down for 3 or 4 days.

I was going to do that, but the lady I was talking with said one of the good things about the programmer is if there is something I don't like about the programming Bill could walk me through how to do some adjusting with the program.

This will probably be my next mod, as I just replaced my FICM and my mileage is still like 14 MPG. I'm sure it has the latest flash, so I'm looking forward to getting it back to it's old glory! I remember getting 17 MPG all day long when I first bought the truck. I hate reflashes.

I would like to get this done as well to try and get some of my MPG's back...I think when the times comes though I will have swamps do the upgraded 48v FICM mod to mine just to be safe..I believe swamps can do the PHP programming as well. Might want to check with them but I dont think they do the remote programming.

Let us know how you like it once you get it done.

+1. Let us know how this goes. I'd like to get this done soon. The flash the dealership put on truck last year KILLED my mileage. My FICM is good; I've checked and I get 47+V all the way around so I just want to get the FICM rolled back to what it used to be. I'm just curious how the remote programming experience goes.

They offer a 58v for only $50 more. I put it in my old 6.0 and I noticed a definite difference. Just saying for $50, I would go ahead and do it.

PHP is the only one that does remote programming.

They offer a 58v mod. But they also say that if you tow heavy just stick with the 48v unit. The 58v unit gets rather hot under load

I didn't know that. I definitely shouldn't have gotten the 58v then.

Haha that is exactly why I was going to get the 48v...I found that out when I called in for pricing. I dont need a monster but I would like to know that one of the big things that fail in this truck has been "fixed" so to speak so I dont get stranded. I think all they do is just resolder all the joints to prevent the FICM from failing..at least that is what I got from it on the 48v mod.
