FICM Advice

Since it looks like a new FICM may be in my future, who do I turn to for a replacement? I tow a lot, my mods are listed below, and I'm a teacher, lol. With those three things in mind, what's best for me? 48V or 58V? Tuned or no? Who should I go with? Any suggestions are appreciated! Thank you!

I think that you should send it to Ed at ficmrepair.com I just had him repair mine and he does an excellent job! He has many many other great reviews so don't just take my word for it. It is cheaper than it would be to have Ford sell you a new one and Ed not only fixes your ficm he can also upgrade it to make it last even longer! I had him tune mine with the atlas 40 and my truck seems to start better and idle smoother as well as having a little more power.

ed at ficmrepair.com... alot of ppl dont relize with a 58v ficm it will throw a check engine light not a visual one though but a code will be on your truck if you use a check engine scanner not good for emissions or state inspection requiring states...

my ficm is getting low and I have heard everything good from ficmrepair.com I just gotta finish my 4runner project so I have a ride while I wait for FICM in the mail lol...

How long of a wait is it for the FICM? I'm an Ag Teacher and I haul kids and show animals around, so I can't really be down...

I also used Ed. I had him send me a reman ficm, installed it and sent mine back to him. So that being said turn around time is pretty quick with no down time.

Bulletproof Diesel. Their FICM's are made with military grade hardware, redundant circuits, and larger heat sinks to help dissipate heat. It may be the last FICM you'll ever buy.

Lifetime warranty. Fast friendly and extremely helpful. Ed will even ship you a unit to install then ship yours back to him...
