Which FICM and ECM

I am looking at getting my FICM rebuilt and my ECM reflashed. Ideas or thoughts on where you guys have went or I should go to? Also is it worth it to have the FICM tuned as well? I am running an SCT w/Vivians tunes and an Edge CTS.

I like my bullet proof 48-58 volt FICM and soon they will offer tunes from PHP on them
from what I understand

if u are running Vivian's tunes Why would you reflash your ECM ? vivians has done that for you when you loaded The tune

Two options for the FICM rebuild, FICMrepair.com or the kit from BPD.

The ECM rollback, I'd talk with the folks at PHP. They can point you in the right direction.

I would add FICM tuning to your list if you are looking for more power lower in the powerband. Nothing bigger than the Atlas 40 added to custom tuning with stock bolts.

I had Ed at FICMRepair.com do mine and have nothing but good thing to say about his service.

Also had him put the Atlas 40 on it while it was there and really made a difference in my truck. I do not have any other tunes on my truck though, so if you are already tuned you may not notice a huge improvement. Most guys note at least some more low end power and quicker spool up.

Total down time with this whole process...4 days.

Are you looking for stock? Mine is a 58v but if I was looking at stock - go to international. DIRT cheap. Less for a brand new one than what the repair will cost. Heck drive there and do the half shell right in the lot. (cause they need your core).

About 60% less in cost than ford for the SAME part. lol
