IDP FICM PROGRAMMER ?'s

Hey guys, just got a IDP FICM programmer for a great deal. I am wondering if it is the same run down to program the FICM the same way as the PHP one does. Also I have heard that once you install it you cannot go back to stock as well as you cannot use it on another vehicle as it stays married to the VIN of the truck it was first installed on. Any help would be appreciated thanks guys.

correct, you can't go back to stock and atleast mine, I must have the stock ECM tune in so it can read the VIN. Mine is the older single FICM tune with the Moderate (40hp) non-inductive tune.

I have ID's mild FICM tuning. However I never purchased the programmer...just the FICM tune I was sent the programmer from ID to download the FICM tune....then I had to send the programmer back to ID. People have said that in the directions it says to pull the relay for the FICM. But when I got it...there were no directions and I never pulled the relay.

Always pull the FICM relay when reprogramming the FICM. There is a science behind it, offhand I can't remember the specifics but it involves the #1 injector coils being commanded on too long and possibly overheating the solenoids.

What kind of deal did you get? I've been wanting a tuned ficm for a while now

You know now that I think about it I wonder if that isn't what caused Adrian's problems with his injectors as he was programming his FICM and pulling the wrong relay. but it makes me wonder.

the FICM relay always looks different than the rest of the relays. On the later 05+ trucks it's the light gray one with a little bit of the top corner cut out. I can't remember if earlies are like that too
