Does it hurt to run 58 v on bpd ficm?

Just got my 6 phase bpd ficm. And haven't decided if I wanna run it on 48 53 or 58. What's the benefit of the 58 v and does it hurt anything to run the 58

Running 58v on that unit is ok because it's built to handle the add voltage. 58v help my cold starts and my throttle response was improved also.

Running it on 58v won't hurt your injectors. The only negatives about 58v FICM's that have been discussed involve the extra heat they generate and the subsequent premature FICM failures. However, the BPD FICM is designed to handle the heat and then some.

Set it to 58v and enjoy!

If 58v was going to hurt the BPD FICM they wouldn't give you the option to configure it that way. I run mine at 58v.

Got questions about your 6.0?

I know ficmrepair has had issues with 58V and quit offering them but they are not the same as the BPD unit. They were overvolted/modified stock PS vs. the BPD all new PS and half shell that has been built to handle the extra voltage and heat. No one has shown to my knowledge any actual dyno numbers demonstrating 58V actually produced any additional horsepower, but many many drivers have reported better throttle response, easier starting, help with stiction issues, regrew hair, fixed their low testerone, helped them loose weight, cured their ED, and brought upon world peace.

All kidding aside I don't think it the Bee's Knee's when it comes to upgrades but I like the idea of overbuilding anything, until someone actually post up about a 58V unit doing any damage count me in

And while your at it get the FICM tuned. Pretty good bang for the buck on small horsepower and mileage gains seems to be the consensus
