PHP Ficm worth it with customs tunes from SCT

Trying to decide if it is worth getting PHP Ficm tuner and the 4 tune when I'm already running custom tunes? Will I notice any power or fuel mileage gains?

It seems like some trucks do and some don't. My truck seemed to benefit from it gaining power and mpg plus I also had no gauges before it so it has worked out well so far.

My findings are like the above posts. Good power increase and minor MPG bump.

One thing I can tell you is that if you run the higher HP FICM with a PCM custom tune it can and will get HOT... Be careful. I actually bumped my FICM tune down to the Atlas 40 cause I was hitting 1700* EGT's.
