PHP FICM tuner?

I know it's been on here a number of times. But is it really with the $400 for the FICM tuner. I keep saying I'm going to order one then I change my mind. I feel like I have a good FICM as of now. Atleast my CTS says I do. And will it adventually do damage to injectors,FICM an or motor? Just tryin to get as much info. Real world experience about it.

I bought the 400 film tune and wish I just sent it to Eric at innovative or Vivian at QuickTricks. The 40hp atlas runs the best on my truck with a race tune and tow and performance. I tried the others and it ran like crap.

So my opinion don't buy the whole programmer.

And I would buy from a company that answers their phone, Php tends to not answer their phone and play on Facebook all day posting and wondering why everyone hates them lol fact!

This tuner is well worth the money! I have one with my looney tune and it's great! It opened my truck up a lot!

I don't think it's worth 400$. Maybe if you ran it without a sct, but with a race file and the gryphon your only gonna get a slight increase and better throttle response. And more than likely run rough n like crap. Just wait for your ficm to go bad and get a 58v that's tuned. Jmo

Lol, Epic....

If I had to do it over again, i would just get my ficm tuned with atlas 40 instead of buying the tuner. I see a noticeable increase in egts with anything over 40. Econ tune is good to tho.

I've ran all 4 FICM tunes with the SRL++ without issues. Even ran the Atlas 40 with Vivian's Agg/tow while towing my 8k camper, no issues.

I haven't had a chance to load any of the FICM tunes with any of my other custom tunes.
