As said by others, it needs to be fixed or replaced. It WILL destroy your injector.
FICM tuning will increase EGT's, just like an ECM tune will. Idle and cruising it should be comparable to stock, but under hard throttle, you'll likely see higher temps (More fuel = more heat)

Swamps, Quick Tricks and FICMrepair.com would be my recommendations, based on feedback I've read on the forums.
I've been talking with Ed at FICMrepair.com, he seems like he really know his stuff and has been super helpfull with answering all my questions. I wouldn't hesitate to send my FICM to him (best price too), he does now offer PHP tuning, but he won't do a 58V upgrade.

I heard it will be a few more months. Mine is still good (just wanting to "fix" it before it craps out) and I too am trying to wait to see what they offer and how much they're going to charge.
I've heard that the price will be "competitive" and the ones out for beta testing seem to be working well and look badazz, like all their other stuff
