Default FICM, ICP, IPR replacement

I am replacing my FICM, it died last week, and a leaky ICP sensor. My questions are, should I replace the pigtail also, I don't know what it looks like yet. I also have read alot about replacing or updating the IPR valve. What is the update.

I wouldn't replace the IPR if it's not broke. What are you doing with your busted FICM? Interested in selling it? Or having someone like me fix it? I wouldn't worry about the pigtail on your 06, it was more of an issue on the 03/ early 04.

OK on the IPR, do you know what this upgrade is I have read about, something to do with a screen? My FICM was reading 10.5v with the key on not running, and couldn't get it to turn over. I had the batteries load tested about 2 weeks ago, after your PM, when I was getting new rubber and they are good. I took the opportunity to order a tuned 58v from Innovative. I have plans to upgrade my injectors to 190. I also thought about getting an STC fitting for the HPOP, do you have any opinion on that?

You should do the STC fitting upgrade. 4C3Z-9B246-F

The tuned 58V should do you good. The 58V mod is done by Swamps, and Innovative does the tuning on them, they work in conjunction with each other for this.

What are you going to do for fuel system to support the 190's? What about a turbo?

My only guess as far as the upgraded screen is the new stainless mesh HPOP screen. They're about $20, and it should be done, especially if you're digging in to do the STC fitting on the HPOP.

Is that a Ford part #? What about the screen, Ford? I'll be getting an air dog II, haven't looked into turbos yet, thats after the first of the year.

Yes that is a Ford number...

Looking through my parts lists, I see there is an IPR screen, but I'd have to imagine it'd be something you'd replace if it was broke... not sure if it's an actual upgrade, but might be worth digging in to. PN is 3C3Z-9H529-A.

Planning on running stock turbo with the 190's for a while then? Not going to be doing much towing then I take it? It's gonna be a smoky ****.

I won't do the injectors until next year also. I should be getting a commission bonus in December that I'm hoping will take care of injectors, fuel delivery and a turbo, at least most of it. If there's any left over, a nice set of K5LA horns.

The FICM core is going back to Innovative.

By the way, I should probably invest in a code reader so I don't have to go to the stealership to have them read, what do you use?

I just read about replacing the stand pipes and dummy plugs when doing the STC fitting. What are these? Also, what are banjo bolts?

I use my SCT generally for codes, but I've got Autoenginuity with the enhanced Ford bundle for datalogging and scanning now.

I've got the P/N's for the stand pipes and dummy plugs at work too, same for the banjos. I'll try and explain it more tomorrow.

Don't know that much about turbos yet. I've read alot about powermax. Big picture, I plan on a 36 ft toy hauler in a couple of years and also be able to smoke the occasional mustang/ camaro/ corvette.....i think you get the picture.

I wouldn't run 190's if you're planning on towing that large of a trailer, unless you're dedicated enough to run compounds.
