FICM question

Ok, so I bought a FICM and I wanna get it flashed for performance. Who would be the best to send it in to in order to get the most performance gain out of it?

Alright thanks. Any input from anyone who has a performance flash from any of these? How much gain did you get from it?

I have the PHP tuning on mine. I can't give you numbers but the low end is much improved and I've never lost any MPG. I'm leaning towards a 58V modded FICM to add some reliability.

I've heard good reviews on them too. The only thing to consider from my understanding is if you tow the 58v is not recommended due to higher heat if i'm correct.

Not the case anymore. Read Golfer's comments in this thread: FICM~ 48 or 58?? that is the question.....
