Innovative tuned FICM installed
Like the title says. I received my spare FICM back from Innovatve last week and tonight I finally got around to putting it in the truck. I got the mild tune. I don't have a lot to report yet, but I can tell you after taking it out for a 10 minute ride around town there is a DEFINATE increase in throttle response in my truck! The damn throttle snaps like a stock car now!!! Not that it was terrible before, but it was a noticable increase. I didn't get on it hard when I ran it tonight, but my guess is there won't be a huge difference in SOTP power. It's hard to explain without taking somebody for a ride, but it just FEELS better... I've been told there might be a small fuel mileage gain as well, I'm planning on checking that out over the next few weeks . It might be hard to judge due to the winter fuel around here, but once the weather warms up I should know for sure. I'd like to put it on the dyno just to see if there is actually a RWHP difference before installing my new turbo as well, but I don't know how practical that would be unless I changed back to my stock FICM between runs to measure the difference. All in all so far I'm happy. I think its a nice upgrade for people to consider who already have all the basics, and are wondering what to do next.
