Return to stock before replacing FICM??

I got my 58V FICM from Swamps yesterday. The question is, do I need to go back to stock before I put it in? I have 1 unlock left and would like not to use it, but I will if needed. Thanks.

I purchased the livewire used, with the IDP tunes already on it. Lucky that they worked on my truck, but I do loose unlocks when I return to stock. I need to send it to SCT and have them clear it and refresh the unlocks.
