Spy pics of BulletProof Diesel FICM

So I was at the BulletProof Diesel shop yesterday to have my brakes done and the owners shared a couple ideas that they are working on and I was able to snap a couple of pics of one of their ideas. While their oil cooler and EGR coolers are excellent products, there are still other areas that are CONSTANT problems for 6.0L owners and they want to tackle them. :woot:

BULLETPROOF FICM
As we know the stock Ford FICM has its share of problems and many of us have had them fail at the worst possible time. From the poor solder connections to the substandard choice in semiconductors to the design flaws in the voltage amplifiers, the stock Ford FICM is a problematic part on the 6.0L's and resoldering components only fixes one of the many issues.

Based on my discussion with them, the BPD team has done R&D on their own design of Fuel Injection Control Module! It has redundancy and voltage adjustability built in to the design and replaces the inferior, substandard semiconductors with more readily available and more heat-tolerant components. They are also redesigning the clamshell case to improve heat transfer. Anyway, ON TO THE PICS!!!





While this is only the circuit board, they have shown me drawings and schematics of the new design and I am SUPER excited! I know that despite having them resolder my stock FICM, I still datalog FICM voltages whenever I tow because I'm am worried it will fail again. I simply CANNOT wait for these to be released because I will be running one on my truck. :thumb:

Great find Shawn, can't wait to see how these turn out on some trial trucks. I loved my 6.0 just not the small problems that could happen.

Damn, Matt! I knew you were hard on your equipment.... (There's a joke in there somewhere!)

This makes sense and may be something they are already considering since they mentioned the heat and vibration from the stock mounting location. They are always working on something.

Kevin, I just have the BPD oil cooler and EGR cooler. They have done a bunch of work on my truck, though. Their shop is in Mesa, which is just across town from me so not only is it convenient, but they are trustworthy and the kind of guys that give you honest answers. That and I like to see what they are working on next. Plus, they are just cool dudes to hang out with!

Example: my expensive rotors didn't last me 20k miles before they were warped (thickness variation if you wanna get technical! ). After talking to them for several minutes, we decided to go back to stock rotors and brake pads. They could have tried to upsell me on more expensive stuff, but they didn't. They compared the quality of steel and a bunch of other stuff that went over my head, but the fact that they didn't try to sell me something I didn't need says something about them as individuals and shows how they run their company. They have integrity and I will continue to take my truck to them to have it worked on.
