PHP FICM tuning

Well after I get my new HPOP in the truck I going to do alittle tuning until I sell her down the road. I thought about having PHP tune my FICM while its down and then get a SCT and 4" straight pipe. Figure if I am going to have to drop the money for a HPOP I might as well keep the truck till summer or so that way I get use out of it. Then just return it to stock when I go to get rid of it.

So you are going to sell it? Just do the HPOP and be done. Unless it needs more work.

Selling a truck, tuning may not be a good sign for the buyer.

I will sell it but it wont be for another 6 months or so. I will return it all to stock including the exhaust. I want the FICM tuning for the inductive heating for cold weather starts cause my truck sits at our shop at work for weeks on end cause I work on the road so I want better cold starts.

What oil do you use?
If you dont use it already,using diesel kleen will keep the diesel fuel in good shape.

I use T5 and have Rev-x in this oil change. I also use Diesel Kleen and the Ford addative when I can get in to get it. FICM test out good all injectors test out good. Only work they said was the HPOP needed replaced.

Soon will be in the teens but before long we will be hitting below 0. Last winter I had my 00 cummins and NEVER plugged it in and would fire with ease at -5 and worse. With it sitting at the shop I want it to start as easy as possible since I cant plug it in there.

It must be the prolonged sitting the truck does that gives you the difficult cold starts.
I started my truck when the engine was 20*, no issues at all. I posted a video a few days ago.

My opinion is that the php tuning is a waist of your good earned money.

Why would you think it would be a waste of money? Unless I read wrong its only $150 to have it done.

Well you dont drive it that often, I do not feel that it will be a full benefit from its cost.
I originaly thought it was $200.
