low low FICM volts

So I just got my truck back from the shop. New studs, egr delete, oil cooler ect. After installing my new Livewire TS I noticed a FICM voltage around 30 at start up. Should the truck have even started at this voltage? Didn't notice any rough idle and after I ran down the road the read came back to the 47 range. Should I trust the TS and does it matter what min/max range I have set for the sensor in the TS program?

Your FICM is shot.

Here.

Good but not a Fix all.

Ed@FICMREPAIR.com

Best and is a Fix all.

FICM Bullet Proof Fuel Injection Control Module Update

Either way here is my breakdown.

Ed's best repair with best warranty is $500 plus shipping. That also maintains the crappy OEM pc board and most of the OEM components in it as well as the garbage heat sync (the outer cover with the fins on it).

BPD's 4 Phase FICM is $500 and is a Fix all solution which looks badass as well as gets rid of all of the JUNKY OEM components and uses a completely redesigned board with top of the line components.

Take your pick.

Thanks Brian. I was afraid that is what I'd hear. So does the BPD include a new logic board? If so, would it be worthwhile to add a PHP ATLAS tune?

No it doesn't include the new logic board and neither does Ed's repair. Both are only done the power supply unit. Atlas 40 would be a nice addition. However I would opt for the PHP FICM programmer if your going to put a tune on the FICM itself and here is why.

When you send it out to be programmed it is gonna cost you $150. Now if you don't like it your stuck with it unless you pay to ship it back out again and have it reprogrammed back to stock or try another tune which will again cost you $150. The PHP FICM programmer is $350 and gives you 4 tunes and the ability to go back to stock should you so choose to do it.

Ok thanks. Food for though there. Just finished read through on the FICM post linked in your sig. Your thoughts on 58v vs 48v. I know there are several threads on this also and people seem divided on the pros/ cons. The PHP FICM tuner- is that a flash tuner that works through tho OBP? Sorry if I am asking reduntant questions here, new to the wonderful world of 6.0 l

Yes it is a flash style programmer that is plugged into the OBD-II port to reflash the FICM. I personally seen improvements with the 58v FICM over the 48v FICM.
