PHP FICM Programmer???

Alright well first off I searched this forum and PHP's forum and couldnt find an awnser. I think I will call tomorow if nobody knows. My question is:

I have a early build 04 with a FICM from an 06. The tuner has tunes for 03, 04, and 05+. Common sense would say use the 05+ with the 06 FICM I have, but has anybody noticed any issues going with the others? I am just curious if there is a diffrence in them. I tried the 03 atlas 40 and seems to be better throttle response but I didnt want to hurt anything so I switched it to the 05 calibration. Sorry if this was already covered and I missed it. Thanks for any help in advance.

While the FICM may physically be a 2006 it's a matter of the tuning loaded on the logic side.

This is correct. Your truck is set up to run a particular FICM code that varies with model year.

I would imagine that your 06 FICM was reflashed to work with your 04 build. therefore I would suggest the use of the 04 tune set.

Your truck will throw a P0306 code if you install the wrong code set.
this code stands for software incompatibility in the FICM

The ficm was not reflashed. I know that for sure. That's why I asked the question. Should I use the 05 tune or the or one of the others? Also if the code is the only issue does it really matter which ine is used?

Reading over my response, I wasn't clear enough in my message.

There are two different types of FICMs, the seven pin and the four pin.

All of the four pins have the same hardware
All of the seven pins have the same hardware

The issue that people run into has to do with the FICM tune compatibility with the trucks ECM. If the ECM is an 04, you will want to have the 04 tune installed on the FICM. The variation in FICM files is to keep a perfect match to what the ECM is.

I have not seen nor heard of anyone experiencing any damage due running the wrong file, but most will trip the P0306 code I mentioned in my last post. The way to correct this is to put the proper file in the FICM. We suggest you run the tune that is proper for your model year
