Who's custom tune with Hercules 100

Hey guy's. I put in the hercules ficm 2 months ago and wow what a difference. I've seen custom tunes for the Atlas 40 & 80 but is there a tune for the hercules 100. Truck has 4" Turbo Back Exhaust, Egr delete, Arp head studs, stock injectors, stock turbo and SCT Tuner .07 crew cab. I don't tow just look for power. 6" lift on 37s. Any advice will be appreciated
Thanks

Most tuners don't like the Hercules 100 FICM tune, because your truck will run hot. If you don't mind the extra heat, then by all means - run the Hercules 100 with whatever tune you want. I'm running the Herc 100 with Matt's SRL Extreme tune, however my truck is a ZF6 (manual transmission) so I can manage my EGTs easier than 5R fellas can. For optimum performance regarding PHP's FICM tuning, get in touch with Jay or Bill at PHP - they can set you straight and give you the best advice.

In my opinion, you'll probably get the best of both worlds with "downgrading" to the Atlas 40 or 80, and then going with your big performance tune of choice. I've heard amazing things about the PHP 140X tune, but I'm not sure which FICM tune they recommend with it. Since you don't tow, you could potentially run a hotter combo with ECM/FICM tuning.

One thing that I didn't know, until now, is that PHP offers custom FICM tuning for aftermarket injectors. After talking with Jay on the phone, I'm under the impression that they don't necessarily recommend one of their "generic" FICM tunes for someone who has aftermarket injectors.

I didn't know this either... Would have been nice to know before I bought one of their generic tunes...(atlas40)

I am starting to really think that the generic atlas 40 is not liking my 175/30's and putting out more smoke then needed and runs a bit hot.

Would be nice to get a revised ficm tune because I feel like I paid for a ficm tune and wasn't really given the best for what's out there for larger injectors..

I know what you mean, give Jay a shout and see what he says. I didn't know that he and Bill could make custom FICM tunes until the other day. I'm gonna try to meet up with them this weekend and redo mine.

Yeah I'll have to do that. I found out about it when vision diesel had their opening that Matt went to.

But bill and Tony were so darn busy with custom tuning that I didn't even get to see Bill, nevertheless get the chance to talk to him about my FICM tune.
