Needing FICM advice please.

Guys my FICM has been diagnosed as having a 35 reading. The truck is going to stay stock other than exhaust and KN open air kit.

What do you guys recommend? My mechanic says we can go OEM from Ford and have it programmed or where should I go to get a good base 48 volt unit.

Thanks in advance

Ty

Fix it yourself! It's very easy, and very cheap. Huge money saver.

The issue with fix'n yourself is if you screw up and mod/damage then try to get a Swamps, they won't give you a core exchange for a DIY modded/damaged FICM.

The other is, Swamps also upgrades more parts than just the capacitors and resistors.

Yep, I would go with an aftermarket fixed/upgraded unit and not one from Ford. Also, save yourself the cash, dont worry about an intake!
