The $250 core charge will be refunded on cores that have not been tampered with, and those cores which are rebuildable (no external case/connector damage, no water/coolant contamination, etc). Please note that if you send us a core that has been soldered on, that full core credit will not be issued. This is due to the extra work involved in reversing & correcting amateur repair attempts. In these instances, we will only refund fifty dollars ($50) of the total core charge. If NO FICM is returned, then no core money will be refunded.
Our rebuilt Heavy Duty stock (48) voltage & Heavy Duty HOT (58v) FICM's both come with a 1 year warranty, and can be reprogrammed with a performance "flash" for an additional charge. If a performance flash is requested, PLEASE include the year of the vehicle in the comments section during checkout.
We DO recommend that you MEASURE your FICM voltage (either by diagnostic scan tool, or by removing the access cover on the top of the FICM) prior to purchase, to ensure that your FICM is actually failing & contributing to poor engine performance.
Both our 48v FICM, as well as our 58v FICM units come pre-programmed with the factory Ford programming. These units are fully tested (on a test bench, actually sending signals to 8 fuel injectors), with a 30 amp load, and are ready to install & drive away. No reprogramming by Ford is required!!! Though we do offer custom "flashed" FICM units for an additional fee.
