I can't speak from experience but I know of others who have had the repairs done to their OEM FICM and it still fails in the end and leaves them with a truck that is down and having to wait for the repair to happen again.
Here's the deal. You can always get a FICM tune. You can rent the programmer from PHP and pay for a tune and install it later on yourself. Doing that also gives you the ability to try other FICM tunes and pick which one you like.
Ed's best repair and best warranty will set you back $500 throw a tune on that and your looking at $650 plus shipping costs both ways. And that still retains the OLD ORIGINAL garbage OEM board, heat sync and all the garbage OEM components that fail.
BPD's 4 Phase gives you a BRAND NEW completely redesigned board with all new better designed components and a BADASS looking heat sync housing all for $500. Throw on a FICM tune and your sitting at the same price as the repair but with a brand new unit that has been PROVEN to be better than any repair. It's your money spend it how you choose to do so I am just giving my opinion on the situation.
Ed upgrades key components - FETS, capacitors, etc.
