PHP FICM re-program and my strategy code

So a few weeks ago I got Matt's SRL hammered into my truck and love it. Reading about PHP Altlas mods and their website says my VXBC9N2 strat is not good and recommend a roll back. Now being the weekend I can't contact Gearhead and ask them if their 3 maps I just bought would be out the window now. Should I still roll back? Thanks

You only need to roll back if you drive around on stock tuning. Your tuner will build around your base strategy. So, in short, no.

thanks Doub.

So all I have to do is get the tuner and load the program of choice and not worry about effecting Matt's work.

Correct. No revisions necessary.

I'm not sure that is 100% correct, I would talk to Matt about that. I believe there can be a slight gain in power having the tune rewritten to a preferred strategy.

Honestly If I had to do it all over again I would just performance flash the FICM and leave the ECM alone

I chose to do it this way because of the much talked about tuning that the trans receives. I understand that tuning the FICM does nothing to the trans.

and that is a good route to go because the TCM does get confused when running the 80 and 100hp ficm tunes.
