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!

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.
