FICM swap out

So I bought a "Swamps Modified" FICM while I was troubleshooting my engine troubles, and am wondering if I can just swap it out, or do I need different tunes again for it, as I'm sure they do not have the same "code".

My FICM is modified with Eric's "Moderate" reflash, but I want to try this other mod'd FICM to see if there is any difference in them as far as power and or throttle response.

Let us know how you like it. I've been looking at the FICM tuning seriously lately. I've heard good things about the Swamps 58v setup too.

Black smoke don't mean it's broke... it means your tuning sucks!

Re: FICM swap out

Tanks 250, why not just test it? The test procedure is pretty simple, and it doesn't cost you anything!
