BPD's billet FICM

anyone on here running BPD's new billet FICM? What are your overall impressions of it? Just received my 4 pin 6 phase today. Thinkin about making it put out 58v...what do you guys think? I'm assuming by going off of the voltage selection chart that I need to clip the wire that has VS1 under it to make it 58v right?

The layout for the wires is on the circuit board. It should be on the instructions sheet as well.

I clipped mine for 53V. Improved throttle response, slight bump in MPG, better cold starts, overall great upgrade. Not too mention you never have to worry your FICM failing again!!!!

Re: BPD's billet FICM

You cut vs0 to get 58v. Unless a 4pin is different? I have 7pin. I could tell a difference right away, bit more peppy.

Yeah i know where the voltage chart is but i'm a bit confused with it. to me it looks like the VS1 wire is the one i have to cut to get 58v. just wanna make sure.

I looked at the chart in the owners manual that is on their website. If you look where the corresponding circuit says "open", that is the one you cut.

It's printed right on the circuit board as to what needs to be cut and the two wire loops are plainly labeled also.

Yes i know it's labeled. But what i didn't understand is that for 58v... under the VSO column is says "open" and under the VS1 column is says "wire installed". I assumed i was suppose to cut the wire for VS1 for "wire installed" not for the "open". I guess i just don't understand the "open" and "wire installed" part for the VSO and VS1 to get 58v.

"Open" means the wire it cut or the circuit is "open"

So if it says VSO open for 58V thats the one you cut.

I had to post on here to confirm also, it needs to be spelled out on the instructions instead of saying "see chart".
