Hey guys, pulled my ficm this morning. Got the case apart and noticed this. Corner is melted off of whatever this thing is. Also had a little piece of what looked like metal hanging off it. Is this thing pooched now?

If we start talking about antlers i am leaving this thread...
I don't know the FICM well but that looks like the amplifier (power supply) can he replace it with the international half shell part? http://www.powerstrokediesel.com/doc...S_04-11_r5.pdf
That should be the section under the black plastic. I don't think you should consider just replacing the single chip. The whole part should be less then $300... Search in TDS for FICM Half Shell for more threads. If you really need to go cheap Dorman also makes their version. http://www.dormanproducts.com/digita...Module_Dor.PDF and you probably can order it from your local auto parts store. I would try international first, they seem to be the cheapest on some items and then move on to the Dorman part.
I bought one from Rock Auto, a Dorman replacement board for about $150. Before I got it installed I sold it to a friend in dire need, straightened his truck right out. Guess I will have to order another one. I have a fresh discount code for Rock if anyone needs it.
