Replacing Fuel Injector Control Module?

Got news from the dealer that my FICM is bad and he wants $1200 for the part plus labor to replace. I looked on line and can by a reman for about $450 from O'Reilly. (I was just looking for a comparison cost and haven't looked at other parts stores)

What is the possibility I could do this myself?

Easily, but take a look at Swamps FICM first.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

Oops just noticed you have a 7.3 so maybe someone else will be more help.

replacing the FICM is easy. It is behind the wheel well plastic on the driverside fender. If you remove the plastic wheel well you will find the FICM. You just need to get a replacement one. You could go aftermarket modded FICM. Or you could go Replacement OEM. Or you can go OEM.

Thanks guys - I think I can handle the physical replacement, but is there any programming that has to go into it or is it plug n' play ?
