BPD FICM 4 or 6 phase?

I have been noticing my ficm voltages dropping. When driving it will go from 48 to 44 but mostly stay around 46 and 47.5 . Cold mornings it will drop below 44 but not below 40 yet for a few minute until it warms up. So it looks like the BPD ficm will soon be ordered, but I was wondering if the 6 phase is worth the extra coin. What benefits is there for 53, 58v ficm? Or should I save the 200 buck and stick with 48v.

I see no need for the 6 phase unit.
Im running the 4 phase and it is treating me good. all the same benefits and tell you the truth, I never did understand going to higher voltages... nothing crazy good/cool happens. Just more money spent by those people

Wells that is good news, don't really want to spend the extra cash if it is not needed. But I will spend a little extra for a quality unit like the BPD ficm besides fixing this oem POS!

For those running the 6 phase and sticking with 48V, there are additional redundancies built into the unit, but the way these units are designed, you would be just fine sticking with the 4 phase if you stick with 48V.

4-phase here as well. It's been nothing but amazing. Cold starts are a lot better.
