possible FICM problem????

Hey everyone, I just received my gryphon FICM programmer from PHP today. I set it to atlas 40 and so far it seems to work good. I set the monitor to watch FICM output and everything looked good at first, 47~49 volts steady from start up to driving down the road. The problem I'm seeing is when I push the go pedal hard the volts drop pretty fast. Lowest I've seen was 40 volts and then I backed out of it. Soon as I'm off the throttle it comes back up to 48 volts give or take. Is this normal or is this the beginning stages of my FICM becoming a paperweight? Please let me know what you think.

Yep, hate to say it but it's on the way out. Time to send it out or do a half shell.

Not really for me, Mitch. I have a spare for myself. I have a friend at work that is possibly interested in one that he would install the Atlas tune on (he wants his OEM as a spare).
