Swamps 58v FICM with PHP Tune

Just bough the 58v FICM from Swamps. Excited as hell. Curious to see how it will work in conjunction with the SCT and the SRL from Matt. Hopefully I get more noticeable gains. Anyone else running it with there SCT? What do you have to say for it?

Nothing??????


Also I wanted to try and find out from you guys if there was anything special I needed to do in order to swap the FICM. It looks pretty straight forward but wasn't sure if any programming with the SCT needed done after the install.

FICM swap out is straight forward, unbolt degas bottle and move to the side, carefully unclip FICM harness and remove connectors, unbolt ficm and remove. Reinstall and your good to go.

Matts SRL and the Swamps 58V work awesome together, fast starts runs very smooth throttle response is a megaTON better than stock, noticable gain in fuel mileage. Very little smoke on full throttle pulls. I like it!

I don't really care that much but it would be nice to gain some mpg's. I am down to 10.5 with winter blend crap and warm up idle times being longer. Oh well hp is way funner than mpg's.

I have one with a PHP tune on it with heavy inductive heating. It provides great cold starts when I do not have access to a plug in for the block heater, had a few -25C starts nice and smooth (running 0w-30 oil). Throttle response was much better than stock from what I can remember, I gained 1mpg from it. The power gain was much more noticeable running stock ecm but still some gain when tuned with IDP street and x-street.

If I had the choice to do it again, I most definitely would have!
