Re: FICM Tunes

IMO I don't think the guys running one along with myself actually tell a difference when your running a hot street tune, from what I can see most of the guys that are running ONLY a ficm tune are the ones that can tell a noticeable difference.

PHP Atlas 40 here with great results. I have run Atlas 80 in the past with great results as well.

Re: FICM Tunes

I have the Atlas 40 and like it. Also still notice the bottom acceleration with custom tunes.

Re: FICM Tunes

The bit of research I have done is pointing me to the PHP unit because you can reload a "stock like" tune if wanted as with the IDP unit you only have the tuning and will lose your original tune.

Re: FICM Tunes

I have a PHP, its great, and you can use the tuner to get rid of the ford garbage tunes and do an EGR delete with a laptop and some time on the phone. I run the Atlas 80 tune for everyday driving but go to the 40 for heavy towing. The php tunes also clean up the bottom end fueling that sucks so bad on the factory tune.
