Elite Diesel FICM? any good??

Does anybody have any expierence with there FICMs??

The reason i ask is ficms are hard to come by right now and elite says they have them in stock.... I am in need one one pretty soon

I was looking at there stage 1 and stage 2

But the stage 2 says it Must be run with the accompying PCM tuning through an SCT device.. What does that mean?? There Tunes??

If someone could please clarify what exactly that means would be great

Here is a Link to there FICM page

325+ for a ficm flash is a little outrageous.

I know it is a lot of money but it is still cheaper than innovatives?? And swamps and vivians are not in stock that i was told...

So what is the deal with the pcm tuning?? what is that??? what else needs to be tuned on these things

Innovatives FICm tune is $200 and Elites is $325 or $450

the price of the FICM swap is a decent deal however, kinda ironic

For a tuned 58V Elite is almost $200 cheaper than innovative.
It just encourages doing the 58V mod.
