FICM Tune Contacts

I have been trying to find out some info on having the custom FICM programming done. My truck is stock with the exception of exhaust. I was wondering about the advantages of getting this done and if some one has some contacts with the people who do it so i can get with them on getting it done. Thanks

this may sound stupid but what is the point in doing this? is it doing the same thing as a tuner? if you do this can you/should you still run a tuning device or is the ficm tuning all you need? thanks

Without a tuner it's about a 70hp gain iirc.. And with an SCT is like a 30hp gain.. So it is better if you have a SCT plus the FICM programed.. I really like mine, the low end is alot better with it.

Thanks for the info. I plan to get a tuner down the road. Maybe it would be better to get the tuner first then go with the FICM program. I just found out my wife ordered me gauges for my b-day so more upgrades will be soon to come.

The ficm is said to be where the mpg can be had. Of course they have towing applications, race, and mpg tunes for the ficm. I have considered doing this at some point. The sct is not capible of ficm tuning. Just pcm and tcm tuning

If you are to chose between one or the other, get the Xcal first. Mileage gains are possible with FICM tuning, but you will also get better fuel mileage running your most powerful files on the Xcal.
