ficm poll?

ok so im throwing a 611 code which is the ficm voltage, i know once your volts drop below 46.5 or 47.5 whichever, well i know i gotta do something with it its running lower and lower! i know i have two options, replace it with a better one or get this one repaired, i have been seeing some of the swamps ones have been turning south as well. i want to do this once and be done with it for a while so i would like to see whats everyones opinions on repair it by sending it to ficmrepair.com or get a swamps unit or so on.

well at start up it drops to bout 30 but as it warms up it doesnt drop lower than 44, i want to rip my hair out at stop lights! it will go from 48.5 down to 45 and then back up, im trying to head this off before i start dropping injectors. since i just got tunes i dont really want to get a new ficm if ed sounds like he does a great job fixing, i dont think its the unit itself just how it was made. im not all the best with electronics so doing it myself is way out of the question plus it looks like eds out in IA and im in NE so it kind of works out i guess
