Swamps FICM

Hey guys,

I have a problem child 05 in the shop and I finally have narrowed down a few of the issues. The most important isue is a failinf FICM, so I was going to send the old one down to Swamps in the morning. For thosse of you who have a SWAMPS FICM's what is the real benefit and did you see any significant benefts. What is the real difference between the 48v and the 58v FICM's. This guy plows and runs a salter in the truck so what should I go with.

There isnt anyone I know of locally that has used SWAMPS and I thought that PHP was doing them too, but they are just programming and dont repair.

Once I get the FICM sorted out itson to the EGR Insufficient Flow issue.

Thanks,

Sarge

I run a 58vlt and only noticed some mpg improvement. They (Swamps) told me that if you tow really heavy all the time, too just stick with a 48vlt. I tow 10,000lbs everyother weekend (camper) and they said a 58vlt will be fine. Since he is plowing alot, I would think a 48vlt too be better. Check out FICM repair guy ed. The ppl on here really like him.


I would Highly recommend Swamp's, as they are very knowledgable, and very helpful.

he is the man.... very knowledgeable and to be honest one of the best people i have ever done business with!!!

i have p0401 code EGR insufficient flow as well i just chalked it up to my egr cooler being deleted... if that helps at all... try just pulling it out and cleaning it.... it helps a lot of people

Ed at FICMrepair.com is by far the best person (service wise) I have ever delt with. This fella will help you as much as he can and offers suggestions for trouble shooting too.

I would suggest Ed to anyone/everyone for these resons alsone:

1- Excellent customer service
2- Honest
3- Support
4- all around great person (hard to find these days) in the service world


just my $0.02

I will go with the FICMrepair.com

Did everyone go with the standard basic for 195.00
1 year basic for 225.00
2 year premium for 325.00

Im thinking the 2 year is a better deal because of the upgraded parts so I guess I will go with that. I called and left a message so I guess I will just box it up and see if I can get it there overnight or second day.

Thanks for the input folks.

You guys are just great.

I'm just someone who believes in helping people where and how I can and treat every FICM like it was off of my own truck, the way I'd like to be treated.

Many, many thanks for the kudos.

Ed

bodabdan has a good reputation on FTE.bodabdan has a good reputation on FTE.
Another satisfied ficmrepair.com customer here. I got the 2 yr warranty also and ended up having to use it. Ed got me set up with a replacement unit that he overnighted to me without any downtime on my truck (all in the middle of the holidays).
I literally had a problem for less than 18 hours. I haven't heard of anyone else with a warranty claim.
