DO I have a FICM Tune?

I bought this truck from a car dealer and have no way of getting hold of the guy who had the truck before me. My question is how do i know if this already has a ficm tune? I dont want to waist the money if it is already on their.

Not sure you can tell but there may be clues. If you bought from a Ford dealer, maybe they flashed the truck which would remove the FICM tune? Ask for the Oasis report so you can tell. Next, a lot of guys (me included) got the FICM tune while getting the FICM repaired. Check the FICM to see if it has any identification of being repaired such as or Swamps. If there's no identification, then it could still have a tune, but it becomes less likely.

I don't know if you can tell electronically, I suspect not.

I would look for stickers on it. But I would doubt it has one. Are there other mods? If not I would doubt it even more.
