If the FICM is doing fine, then I would wait on that. Do you haves gauges yet? I would definitely install some gauges before you consider getting an SCT.

From the way he worded his post, it sounds like he is running canned tunes. If he is then the first thing to do is to get custom tunes assuming he already has gauges. Gauges or an edge insight,CT, or CTS.

well i recommend a set of gauges and a X3 with innovative tunes.. if you cant do both i suggest doing the edge insight: Edge Inisight CS

then the X3: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning

i can create a package deal setup on both if your interested... it would save you a lil bit of cash...
