I prefer the BPD 4-phase w/tunes but that's just me.

The BPD unit is just a power supply and shell. It is not a complete FICM, but it will use the logic side of your old FICM. It is tough to say whether or not you have that going out on you. If it were me and I had the money, I would buy a new remanufactured stock FICM, use your old one for the core charge, buy a BPD power supply, and get a FICM tune. Then you would have the most bullet proof FICM out there IMO.

How do you know yours is going out if you haven't checked the voltage?

This, however that isn't the most cost effective route lol.

No worries, my old BPD 4 phase 48v usually sat right at 47.5 98% of the time with maybe a .5% chance of hitting 47 and 1.5% going to 48.

It isn't always a voltage concern that is an indication of ficm failure. I've got one right now that is throwing all injector circuit low codes when cold but the m_pwr is always 48.50-49.00v. even warmed up it's still throwing #1 low all the time. I wouldn't trust just a half shell for a concern like that, you're bound to get burned eventually.

So what do you think it could be? My truck is throwing low circuit codes on 2 so I was gonna drop new injectors and a new ficm in
