Who is running a FICM Tune and Larger Sticks

Anyone?

After speaking with Viv she mentioned 2 other customers took off their ID FICM tune in favor of a smoother smoke free running truck.

Thoughts?

Also is this an old Strategy and what is preferred for an 05 ?

I had the Atlas 80 and loved it. But the egt's were too much for towin. I stepped down to the atlas 40 and wow what a difference. No egt issues but not as much fun either...

Running 190/75's and ID's mild FICM tuning. I have less smoke with FICM tuning than running without it. I wouldn't run a 6L without it. As far as strategy goes...look on PHP website...it'll show you the strategy's.

I'm running an IDP Mild FICM tune and I've tried everything from stock, PHP Economy, Atlas 40, Atlas 80, and Hercules 100 and this is the best FICM tune that I have seen for my 190/100s.

I have only ran ID's FICM tunes...moderate and mild. So not sure how the others are. But my mild FICM tuning has less smoke than the moderate. Probably do to the increased pulse width. Love it tho.

Ive tried all the ficm tunes with larger nozzles, erics was built for larger nozzles. Made the truck so much nicer to drive, and less smoke. Waiting for more parts before going with all custom ficm tuning.

I have ran the Atlas 40 on mine and IDP's mild FICM tune and it runs WAY better than with custom tunes alone.

I've got 155/stock injectors and I run tunes from Wildman and an Atlas 80 FICM tune. Yeah I have some smoke on take off sometimes, but its really not that bad all that time. The smoke is only when i romp on it.

Mods in sig but I too am running a ficm tune with bigger sticks. Mine is smokey with a full fuel tune. I need more air badly. I will say with my srl+ and the herc100 I have the least amount of smoke compared to all my other combos. The herc100 seems to clean mine up alot but the egts climb quickly, and I have notice my boost will hit 45-48 when the herc is on it.
