New FICM installation

I have a f250 6.0 and I have found out my ficm is the cause of my truck running rough and lack of power till it warmed up. So my question is can I just get a new module and install it? Or does it need to be programmed by ford? I have a bully dog tuner on it but its the simple install and play. Do I have to set the truck back to stock through the tuner and install the ficm and put it back on? Or what? Need help here

Look at ficmrepair.com. Ed's very smart about the FICM and has done a awesome job on mine. Im runnin his atlas 40 tune, has a nice little boost to it.
The Bullet Proof Diesel is nice as well but I think its way over priced. But if its like there other stuff its probably top notch stuff.

I can't speak for what to do with the tuner but with stock trucks a bew ficm will need to be programmed toyour truck using ford software

+1 for Ed at FICMrepair. Mine was going out so I opted for his advanced exchange. I chose the atlas 40 and was really pleased with it. Now I'm running it with Vivians looney tune and holy crap its awesome! Ed is very knowledgeable and great to deal with. Good luck man.
