Best FICM to buy

I think I'm getting ready to need a new one. When I start the truck cold My Edge CTS is beeping that the FICM is at 41. After it runs a few minutes it jumps up a couple volts. Which is the best one to buy? I've seen a couple companies advertise them.

I second the BPD FICM. Complete redesign of the oem power board with built in redundancy. Last FICM you'll need for a power side failure.

BPD 53V 6ph all day. There is no other option.
I burned two OEM units, and one "modded" HD 48V before getting a BPD.

Cold starts are AMAZING. The IDP FICM tuner doesnt hurt either!

+10,000 on the BPD FICM. Best money spent on a FICM for sure.
