FICM rebuilders

Those that have had your ficm rebuilt can ya post who did the rebuild and how the truck is running after the rebuilt. i have to have mine done wanting some honest answers.

Also have anyone had any problems with the block heater. I replaced mine last year and had to do it again this week.

i just had my done this week. i sent it out to ed at ficmrepair.com. mail it out on sat and got it back to day. dropped it back in this afternoon and it was good as new. it was reading 43 at startup on my scangauge. after one minute it would go to 48. then it would jump around the rest of the time, between 46 to 48.5. but now the rebuild it is at 48 on startup and holds 48 to 48.5 while running. so it looks like ed did a good job. i went with the full boat rebuild with the two year warranty. i called ed before i took the ficm off to make sure it had a problem. ed also had other good tips on what to do to keep them running. ed is a great guy to work with and returns your call. ther are cheaper rebuilds out there, but ed has a good rep when it come to his work.

I am fortunate enough to live 15 minutes from Ed at FICMrepair.com. I dropped my FICM off today at 1:30 and he called me back at 5:00 to let me know I could come pick it up. His customer service was great. I am excited reinstall it back in my truck tomorrow. I definitely recommend sending your FICM to the great state of Iowa, Ed will take good care of you.
