What's a FICM worth?

I am looking for a FICM to send off and get programmed by innovative and don't want to have my Ex down while I am waiting, so I am gonna hit up some local junk yards and guys parting out SD's.
What should I be paying for one?
What trucks can I take from, that will work on an 05 Ex?

Unless you have one already programmed sitting you want to sell, then you can pm me.

Seems like a stock FICM in good working order will be listed for anywhere from $250 to $350 shipped lately on the boards. I paid significantly less for a spare a year ago, but the prices I listed are just what I've noticed people asking for these days. Any year 6.0 FICM will work as a core to be sent to Innovative, PHP, or Swamps (the 3 suppliers I know that reburn them) as long as it's in good working order.

Is there much difference between the 3 when it comes to overall performance on a basically stock 6.0?

I can't speak for the other 2 but I run innovatives mild burn on mine. Mostly just better throttle response, maybe a little bit better mileage, and it definitely fuels harder up top as I no longer see my EGT's back down on their own on a hard run. I have heard that PHP's burn is geared toward better fuel mileage and drivability instead of a "performance" flash. Swamps is fairly new and I honestly don't know much about it.

If you don't want the down time, why don't you call PHP and have them send you a remote tuner for your ficm?
