Swamps FICM?

Ok I am going to order a FICM from Swamps tomorrow and would like some input. I am planning on getting the 58V with the custom performance tune. Any body running this? Is there a noticeable difference? How does the 48V compare to a 58V. I have it stuck in my head that I want the 58V hot FICM but maybe one of the others are just as good and easier on the pocket? Any input is appriciated.

I've had one since early last fall. Night and day difference in cold starting. Fires right up with very little chugging down to -22. Don't know that the 58 makes much difference in starting over the 48 but do know that the 58 runs your injectors more efficiently and will make a noticeable difference in how your motor runs. Does add a little noticeable hp as well. Also if you do any heavy towing stick with the 48. Performance was worth the $ in my opinion.

Not necessarily true.... check with Swamps, they have changed their recommendations, the 58v can be used for heavy towing... (not sure how heavy)

It depends on if your truck has all the latest Ford reflashes. Some recent flashes take away power and mileage.

It looks to me like he is reselling Swamps FICM. The description is lifted right off of Swamps website.

IF installing a 48v or 58v from swamps would I need to get my custom tunes resent and what are the performance or operating difference between the hot and not hot files? Curious cause I still have warranty and my just have them replace the FICM since I read 40 and 38 V on my CTS.
