how can I tell...FICM

I purchased a ficm from a member here who said it had been tweaked to 53volts.
How can I tell what, if anything, has been done to it ?

BPD only sells the power side of the ficm. The tune goes in the logic side, which rarely fails

It would involved a tiny resistor soldered on the power board.

Do you (or anyone else) have any pics of what something like that would look like so I can open this up and see if I have been sold a fabrication ?

Yep, that's not factory. Put it on and measure your voltage with a multi meter.
