Php ficm tune or innovative ficm tuner?

I have read on both, but I need some opinions, the php tune has the atlas 40, 80, and such, what does the innovative ficm tuner have? Which is better in your opinions?

So in that case, the PHP will have Economy, Atlas 40, Atlas 80, and Hercules... then you can use the tuner as a monitor (whether its married or not)

Same here, only got it because I got a great deal on it. No problems although the performance tune without the inductive heating is not cold weather friendly at all. But runs great and fuels much better than stock. Definitely helps empty my 175/stock injectors all the way.

With as finicky as FICMs are I'd prefer to have one tuned unit and one non-tuned to switch between as I please. Pick up a spare, send it in for a tune and you're still ahead of the cost of a tuner.

Actually I have 3 ficms I have run. Inductive heat, non-heat and Atlas 40.

I've been running my PHP FICM tuner for about a month and it's awesome. It's flawless and easy to use. Plus you get a monitor if you don't already have one.

I can't speak for the tuner itself, but I've been running the Atlas 40 for around 8 months or so and I like it a lot. No issues with cold starts during the winter (down to around 10 degrees) and the truck runs great. When I first got it, I was on stock tunes and definitely noticed a difference. No experience with Innovative here.
