The output voltage has zero to do with programing. The FICM is actually two parts, the CPU half (bottom half) which is what gets "tuned" and the power side (the top half) which gets reconfigured to produce higher volts to make the spool valves react faster.
This is what BPD's FICM power supply looks like. They sure make their stuff look purdy. LOL
