Question FICM Voltage and othe Questions

New here just installed my Dashboss my EOT/ECT deltas avg 9*, but what I really want to know is FICM runs 48 to 48.5v sometimes drops to 47.5v cruising at 60-65 MPH Battery voltage runs 13.6v. is my FICM on it's way out? The ECT avgs 183* is this to low? One more question they replaced the fuel regulator would it have the blue spring or not? Had the truck one month now. So much to learn and monitor compared to my 7.3 powerstroke. Sorry so long winded just need some info.

Thanks, Garry

Keep an eye on your ECT/EOT delta, still below 15* but could slowly climb with time. Your 183* ECT is a little low, could be a stuck thermostat. You could replace and check your delta again.

Your FICMv and Battv looks good.

It's possible that you have the updated spring, but I'm not totally sure.
