Amazon Prime and straight from OptiLube are about the same price-wise (~$70). You can get on OptiLube's website and see if you can find a local shop that is a distributor - would save you a few $$ on shipping.

I have a question for those of you with the BPD FICM, 4 phase or 6 phase? Is the 6 phase worth the extra ducketts?

My FICM rebuilt by Ed has lasted for over 5 years. Still running great and I am happy with it. Personally, I do not see the need to spend the money on the BPD 6 phase unit.

I'm really just shopping as preemptive maintenance, I haven't had any problems but its got 130k on it now and I don't want to be caught off guard
I might just throw a techsmart power board in it and move on to something else

6 phase has internal redundancy so it can fail 2 x and still work plus you can select the voltage

but I think the tech smart is a good choice unless you like to feed the BPD R&D machine ( I do )

I got mine repaired from ficmrepair.com out of Texas with the standard 48V and the atlas 50, which is now the 40, but you can get the atlas 80 flash. They provide a lifetime warranty for a very reasonable price.

I've heard that the 56-58V (whatever voltage it is) can damage your injectors, but I don't have proof of such

I installed a Tech Smart board in mine a while back and it's been rock solid. I don't have any experience with the BPD unit.
