It allows the injectors to flow fuel more efficiently meaning more hp and torque

It is in addition to the sct tunes

First get an sct tuner with custom tunes... Then go for tuning your ficm!

Yep, what he said^^^^^^

The Gyphon FICM tuner can be added to ANY programmer (bully dog, Edge, Banks, ect). It programs the FICM separately.

You can even use it as a stand alone, but when you run the higher Hercules or Atlas 80 tune, it would be wise to have a tuner like SCT to program the trans to handle the extra power.
