FICM SHOWING EHH SIGNS

So getting my truck back on wed with new
oem gaskets, decked heads, egr delete, oil cooler, apr head studs, he replaced leaking glow plugs harness while he was under hood with blank plugs and up pipes. I did the vc-9 flush before hand and provided the cat elc coolant and destilled water.

the guy installs all stuff for sinister in norcal area. he said my FICM is showing 44ish for cold start and around 46.5-47 volts which is little low... im gonna start saving becuase im out of cash now haha

** Ficmrepair.com with like the 40hp tune or just the premium lifetime or

** swamps 48v ficm or

Im gonna start saving this month and ficmrepair.com has 50$ military discount. but i didn't think a for reman was worth 300 so any suggestions?

I have 3k negative equity on truck plus the 3300 for head job and now FICM...

im more or less short on cash and I was thinking the ficom repair with the atlas 40 tune for the money. or does anyone know someone selling a good ficm? I gotta save for few months after the headgasket job. I do like the BPD FICM but cash is an issue for now.

also with the 40 FICM does anyone know if it really gives a 1 or 2 mpg boost on its own? im not looking for hp just reliability. but if it works CA diesel is pricey haha.

I sent my ficm to ficm repair to be fixed and had the 40hp tune installed 2 weeks ago. I took a road trip the day after i installed it and averaged 60mph for a 6hr trip (cant remember mileage) but my lieometer read 20.6mpg. My truck has Never been over 15.5 so i was very happy. Im still on the same tank so i haven't hand calculated anything yet. Since ive been back in town it shows ive dropped to 18.3 and holding. Also i do have a few other mods which have probably contributed to the total gain but the most significant gain was hands down the ficm tune.
