Can any one tell me what tuning the ficm does exactly and if its safe to do and if you can run custom tunes with it?
Basically, allows for better throttle response off the line, and some have seen better MPG. Yes you can run with a SCT custom tune or any other type of PCM programmer.
Safe..... Depend on the driver and health of motor. Head gaskets have been known to go with stock tuning. EGT wise, the higher the FICM tune rating, the higher the EGT.
