Who all repairs FICMs and tunes them?

I am looking into having my FICM rebuilt and tuned but dont know who all does it. I know Innovative does both and it looked like PHP only does the tuning.

Yes you can get another FICM, get it programmed for your truck and install it. For all your effort using ID or PHP to tune the FICM would be worth it.

PHP will take your FICM and upgrade parts to make it heavy duty, you also have the option to go up to 58volts for $50 more. I was told if you do lots of towing to not get the 58volt. I have the 58volt and I love it! While your FICM is at Swamps they can put PHP's performance flash on it, saving you the time and shipping cost to then send it to PHP. I would choose the Swamps route opposed to just soldering a resistor in as Swamps does more than just that and they test it before it goes back to you.

You can take a FICM from any 6.0 and use it on your truck, you do not have to get it tuned to 'your' truck. If you buy a new one from Ford or Alliant you then have to get it programmed.

Ok thanks guys. I am waving the option of finding another FICM as a temp fix until I can send mine in (funds needed and cant have the downtime on truck really either). Getting another one will allow me to send mine in have it fixed and wont have the down time on my truck.
