Mine was just delivered to Ed today. I talked with him on the phone earlier in the week and by email today. I believe from the recommendations I've received that Ed is very reputable. I could have had it done from ebayers for a third of what Ed charged but was afraid all I was getting was a resolder job.

I should have mine back Tueday so I will see.

I would not hesitate one bit to use Ed's services. Very informative, will answer any question, very fast turn around time. I'll second the Atlas 40 tune while he has it.

He Sold Me... So Ed called me back last night, I spoke with him for an hour, so he shipped me one of his unit's with the 2 year warranty, and Atlas 40 program, he wants my mechanic so plug and drive, and then call him.... no doubt Ed knows what he's talking about, we talked about incidents that lead to my bad injectors, replacing only one battery 2 months ago etc.... will keep you updated, his unit should monday/tuesday and then I will ship him my bad unit.... thanks for recommendation ...

I used ficmrepair two years ago and have had no issues. The technician I spoke with talked me out of a "hotter" ficm tune. He indicated that the standard 48v was less likely to cause problems down the road. I dont know if that is correct but I have not had any trouble. Good Luck!

I've had my repair and atlas 40 tune from ficmrepair.com in for about 3 weeks. It is great! I got the 2 year warrenty. I also installed an EGT for my EDGE insight. I just took a trip 1700 miles and got 17.5 MPG. Before the Atlas 40 tune the same trip/ same load I got 16 MPG. So a little better. In fact over the past 6500 miles I got 16 MPG average and only have 1700 miles with the new ficm, so I'm hoping that increases over time.
