FICM Repair?? EBAY

03 04 05 06 07 08 FORD 6.0 DIESEL FICM REPAIR SERVICE 5WY7248/03 1845117C3 | eBay
I found this today, not sure if I should trust him. He does offer a lifetime warranty, on what I'm not sure. Maybe just his workmanship. That's more than I found from these other repairer's. I'm not hatin, just tryin to spend the least amount possible so my beloved PSD doesnt strand me. I dont want Cooter to tow me and put his greasy mitts on my truck without knowing what the hell a 6.0 is. Has anyone else had an Ebayer fix their FICM? If yes, what was your results?

Ok, I'll give Ed's site a look. What about BPD? They charge $300. Every cent counts on this baby.

BPD is gonna cost more, and you need to do the work yourself.

Lot of success with FICMrepair.com on this site, those would be the only two I'd recommend other than buying a newer rebuild from Swamps, PHP, or IDP.

I just got mine back from Ed and can not say enough good things about his service. Went out Monday and was back by Thursday. I got the upgraded service and Atlas 40 on it. Plus i have never seen anyone disappointed by his service. That says something these days to have a service record like that.

Model years 2003 and 2004 came from the factory with 18mm head bolts. In response to head gasket issues, Ford began installing 20mm head bolts in the 2005 and newer model years. For trucks that haven't benefited from replacement aftermarket (and stronger) head studs, the following may also help.
I pulled this from FICM repairs web site. Is this accurate? I thought the later model trucks had 20mm dowels added instead of the 18mm? I have a 2007 and am hoping I have the 20mm.

It unfortunately not the case. Ford never upgraded the TTY bolts. I'm not sure if they know something I don't, or if they are misquoting something.

I believe what they are referring to is the switch made January of '06, from 18mm head dowels, to 20mm dowels. Not as a answer to the problem, but as a commonization for the pending 6.4L release.

Take a look at ARP studs, same part number for trucks from '03-'07.
