Is Swamps Diesel a reputable company to purchaase from? Also they have a 48V and 58V FICM. Would the 58V be worth getting. I know I don't want the flash as I am running the the Triple Dog GT and don"t believe it can be run with any other electronic upgrades.
As far as the Oil Cooler, there is no way that this running condition could cause my high oil temps? I was not having any issues until this FICM problem.
I am planning on doing away with the EGR. Have been lookng at the Sinnester EGR delete kit, Any thoughts on them or is there a better recommendation?
Swamps diesel probably has THE best reputation out there rebuilding FICM's.
Their "performance upgrade" will work with any and all tuners. Tuners over-ride the programming in the ECM, the performance flash that Swaps installs is on the FICM itself and will only add to your tunes.
Sinister has a decent reputation for their EGR deletes. I, and many guys on another forum, chose a different one right off e-bay that runs $150 from Dicad solutions. It has all you need.
You may or may not get the "flow code" that will set a CEL. The better tuners (SCT) will be able to write out the EGR valve functions. I highly suggest leaving the EGR valve in the intake, since the EGR cooler is deleted, the valve will not be able to open the passages, so what is the point of removing it? There is also some evidence that removing the EGR valve will have a detrimental effect on your fan control.
EDIT: replace your oil cooler before other issues compound the issues you already have. No, these can not be the underlying cause of high oil temps.
