Programming question

I want to get my FICM programmed by PHP but want to make sure it isnt a waste of money. I would like to roll back to an earlier strategy for better performane and mileage but which one do I choose? I have heard the ECM rollback was a waste, but is the FICM worth the money? Will this hurt my EGR cooler if im not deleted yet? I heard they added all the extra fuel to protect the cooler. Thanks for the help. Dustin Ball

I did it on mine before christmas, I will not hurt anything, my truck drives much better, starts fine with temps in the high teens and no inductive heating, not plugged in. MPG went up, throttle respsonse was snappier. I bought an 04 new in january of 04 and this is how I remember it running before the Ford strategy updates. This was the best $ I have ever spent on the truck!

Thats good to hear. What is the deal with the inductive heating? You can choose the new heating style, the old heating style or not at all. What is this and what should I get??? Thanks for the help. Dustin

You can choose the safe induction heating, or no induction heating, with good injectors induction heating is not needed, and, is hard on the FICM. Inductive heating holds the injector close signal for longer than necessary to electrically heat the injectors to mask any injector stiction on cold start, this burns up FICMs, PHP has a safer version of this, or none, 03/04s did not have any inductive heating when new, but Ford added it later and most trucks got reflashed by ford.
