Newly rebuilt ficm

So I just received my newly rebuilt ficm from FCMrepair.com. Hopefully the weather hold up tomorrow so I can install it. Can't wait to feel the difference, especially the atlas 80 on it!

You will be very happy with the FICM from Ed. My old FICM was running low voltages until warm and it would come up to 48. My new premium FICM never goes below 48v. A big difference in starting and throttle response. I wish I had put the Atlas tune on mine. Enjoy the new FICM!

Exact same cause and correction. Love the throttle response, and starting. I did not get to hit the freeway yet because of the weather today, but looking forward to it. Hopefully tomorrow

I love how my truck feels with the atlas 80. I have not hauled or towed anything yet so I can't say how high temps can get. Right now unloaded it is slightly more than stock but nowhere near dangerous temps.

What are you seeing for EGT's and what ECM tune are you running with the Atlas 80? Thinking of getting a FICM tuner..
