FICM tuning question

Thinking about getting an FICM tune (seems like PHP is the place to go?) Anyways I just got some custom tunes back from Innovative for my TS and am curious if I get a FICM tune will I need to have the Livewire files rewritten or do they have nothing to do with each other? Little new in the diesel forum community so I have tried to do research and have come to the conclusion that yes they need to be rewritten but I just want to 100% sure. Also what kind of mileage can one actually expect from an FICM tune? Thanks

No, you really don't need to get your tunes rewritten.

What Mitch said.....The FICM tune is separate from the custom tuning that tunes the ECM

The only reason that you will need to have your SCT tunes rewritten is if you choose to do the ECM rollback.
If you just want to program your FICM, as mentioned above, there is no need to have the SCT files rewritten as the two devices (for the most part) work independently of one another.

That could be the cleanest install of the FICM programmer I have seen yet.
Looks awesome.

If you do not mind me asking, where did you get the pillar setup for the ficm programmer? I'm thinking about changing my look up. Thanks.
