It will make a noticable difference. I didn't get to test between a good 48v and new 58v but going from my crapped out stock one to the 58v It was a nice power gain IMO Well worth saving $400 from getting a new one from ford amd having to have it flashed. I would recommend asking dave to send it to PHP to be programmed too($200 i believe) But from what i hear that is well worth it too. Enjoy.

thats a majority of why i went with the swamps one is because i figured it was better to get an aftermarket part thats higher quality and cheaper instead of spending more on another stock module that could also crap out. now i cant wait to get it in and see how it runs!

$750 including a refundable $350 core charge: 48 volt
$800 including a refundable $350 core charge: 58 volt

If the "core" ficm you're sending in is damaged or has a previous repair attempt only $50 of the core charge will be refunded.

Exactly these are built with stronger components so they wont crap out again. Good investment if you ask me... I'll be having my 58V programmed when i can save up some more moolah!!!

Thanks. Is there much of a difference between the 48v and 58v?

Ive been running it for about 2 months now and it works GREAT.
Faster starts, runs much smoother and more snap.
