New tuned Ficm and...??!!

I got my new tuned FICM and put it in it works great seems to be a little harder to start cold but way better response. I took my tuner off just to see how it runs stock and wow!! when i put my extream or insanty on it it runs better but not a whole lot. I think i have some injector issues from the lpop problems im just not sure is all i know is stock this badmotha fuc## runs way hard. Better then new by a long shot..I dont need a diff tune for the tuned ficm do i?

Re: New tuned Ficm and...??!!

is a tuned ficm easier on a stock engine than a custom tuned sct?

Re: New tuned Ficm and...??!!

Not sure on that but she feels great stock its really night and day diff. But the tranns might not like the stock file with the new FICM
Im just wondering why when i switch back to a hot file it really isnt a huge Diff in power. maybe my turbos not up to par from all the nitrous overspinning it.

Re: New tuned Ficm and...??!!

na you dont need a different tune made. it should be fine. cold starts have always been a little harder.

Last time I talked to Eric he told me if you have his tunes, he can re-tune it with the FICM tuned to make it even better. I'm sure Elite is somewhat similar.
