BPD FICM....what voltage?

I just ordered the 6-phase FICM from BPD and I'm not sure which voltage to run it at.

So if it were you would you pick 48, 53, or 58 volts and why?

This is next on my list. What color did you go with...blue or black? I believe most put it at 58v.

I went 58v. Figured their FICM was designed to handle the additional heat and the 58v is supposed to improve performance. I wasn't disappointed.

Me too. I've had mine on for over a month now. Cold starts are easy. I got a black one - doesn't show dirt or grease like the blue one!

I went with black.

I'm leaning towards 58v. I considered starting with 48 and seeing how it goes but I don't want to have to take it out to change the voltage again lol. I think I'll probably just start with 58.

Exactly what I was thinking about doing, and exactly why I went 58v before the install.

how easy is it to switch/change the voltage before installing? What all has to be done to do so?
