Innovative FICM Tuning

I have a question about FICM Tuning. I'm currently running Stage 1 150cc injectors on stock tuning. I'm very happy with them in this state, but was thinking that a slight timing advance and tweaking for the added fuel might help economy and response. Is this something that's possible with FICM tuning, or would I just be better off picking up another Xcal and having a mild tune written for it?

Thanks in advance,
Justin

You will be better off with a Sct, The Ficm focuses on Pulsewidth. Your injectors are already optimized in the flow dept.

dammit. Here goes the "run it harder until something breaks" cycle again! I found a cheap xcal2 the other day, I guess we'll see if I can get a modified stock tune in it and leave it alone:lol:

If I run any hotter with these injectors I'll need a turbo. I have a commander now, I was just looking into yours because you had the FP harness and pod. I found a cheap fuel pressure kit for mine now, but I may still need yours for my dad's truck. I'll let you know.
