SCT X3 frys FICM?

alright soo my truck is at the dealer and they have to replace the FICM (fuel injection control module) on it. I have an SCT X3 with xtreme race tune on the truck b4 i return it back to stock to take it into the dealer. Can the SCT race tune fry the FICM due to fuel demand or anything like that? I have stock injectors innovation diesel new that when they wrote the tune for me.

I've never once heard of the Xcal frying the FICM either. I know Eric (innovative) has said the FICM's are very sensitive to vibration and being banged around.... I would highly doubt the SCT did it.

kinda that same for me but different. i had a bully dog power pup, that erased my PCM.... the dealership replaced it under warranty for me. i dont think the X3 would fry the FICM though. possibly a glitch or something. sorry about your truck!

No, it would be impossible. The SCT devices do not flash the FICM or have anything to do with it.

FICM's are sensitive to say the least, that's one reason we don't flash them with the SCT devices.

actually buddy of mine (wtprez here on the org) fried his ficm. And he doesn't even beat on his truck, its his DD. He told me he just went out of town, next morning goes outside and truck won't start! So has to tow his truck in and gets it replaced under warranty. And he's running dj's tunes on an 05. Go figure.
