Performance Machine FICM

After horrible cold starts, bucking in over drive and a newly developed miss at idle I decided to test my ficm. As suspected, it read low so after some research I decided on a 58v +35hp unit from Performance Machine & Mfg. I placed the order Monday morning at 8:30 am and UPS delivered the new one at 1 pm today, Wednesday. After installing it I couldn't believe how quiet and smooth my truck idled. Even before it started having issues, he'll even when it was new I don't think it sounded or ran like this. On the road there is no bucking, perfect idle and my sotp meter says I picked up some power but that could all be in my head. Even if it's no quicker it was worth it because my truck acts and sounds much happier. This was a great repair/ upgrade and thanks to Performance Machine for a great product.
