FICM Flash upgrade

Hey yall, i was reading on diesel power that an option to upgrade the 6.0's is a FICM upgrade and Elite Diesel does this. has anyone heard of it? its not a custom tune or anything but they take your FICM and flash it for more HP. not really sure what all is involved but any info would be great. thanks

Re: FICM Flash upgrade

i'd go with Innovative or PHP FICM tuning, you have to send it in to flash it or you can give a deposit to flash it yourself when they send you the device.

Re: FICM Flash upgrade

I have innovative's moderate FICM tuning. It increases the throttle response greatl and it gives a 1-2 mpg gain. My truck has never run as well as it does now.

I also have Innovative Diesel's moderate FICM and it's awesome. Highly recommend getting it from Innovative Diesel.
