Anyone here done their own 58V FICM? I'm dying to try this out. I've fixed a few 48V without issue, and am confident I can do the full barrage of replacement for the 58V setup, my only issue is sourcing the pieces... seems a few of the pieces are nearly impossible to locate, and if I do locate, they're some ridiculous thing like a minimum buy of 5000 pieces. Anyone had any luck ordering the pieces anywhere? Thanks guys.

Every time someone asks about this it turns into buy one from a vendor. and im all for supporting them but if one can diy then help the man out instead of how it usually goes.

I have heard several guys with the same problem. I saw a write up once at the .org and I think it had a list of parts and told were the guy who did the write up got his stuff. Mdub707, aren't you a .org member as well? Maybe you've already seen the write up I'm talking about. I'll see if I can find the thread and check if the guy left his parts source in it.

Yeah, I have the parts list and the part numbers, I just can't find a place to buy some of the parts. They're either backordered for 8 months or I need to buy a minimum of 5000 pcs. I'm not buying 5000 pcs when I need 2-8 per FICM.

These are the two items I can't seem to find....

2N08L07 (IPB80N08S2L-07) FICM PS FET’s QTY needed: 4

QN10L12 (IPD70N10S3L012) FICM Injector (low-side) QTY needed: 4




Or if I do, it's a large minimum buy, I think I saw 1000 qty min order.

Here's the link to follow. Now if you're not comfortable working with small surface mount components and have a steady hand with a soldering iron, this is NOT for you. I would highly recommend you do this in a clean evironment, well lit, and with a microscope.

I'll see if I can buy a core from work would that work for you?

Yeah I guess I'm not really sure what you're looking for!? I have a couple 48V FICM's laying in the garage, running one I fixed myself on my truck, and will be dynoing my truck Aug 13th.

What's the advantages of a 58v ficm?

What's the advantages of a 58v ficm?

Same idea as modin a a idm. I sends more voltage to the solenoids on the injectors making them actuate the injector better so they are more efficiant

Over on tdg they went over and over and over the ficm mod. Pros cons and just about everything else. One person bought modded 58v and made their own and tested them as well as a few tuned ones. The discussion was great but it was like 20 pages last I looked.

Link lubbockguy? I got all day to read 20 pages while I'm at work.

bcpsd, Ill check that out tomorrow, thanks.

I'd have to find a lot of friends to get a 1000 pc order! JEEZ! I'm going to read through that 55 page thread at some point, but been SWAMPED this week at work. I still need to check Mouser, but just no time now.

Thanks guys!

I posted the link. The link takes you directly to the part you asked about. All you have to do is click the link, takes maybe 2 seconds to load depending on your internet speed. Just saying:confused:

They don't have QN10L12. I think he is still looking for this one.

Thanks for the link. Definitely interested in this as I have a couple defective ficms on the shelf that I've examined a bit but wanted to wait to take the plunge into modding/repairing til I was better informed.

You can go ahead and just repair them now, it wont make a difference if you want to do the 58V mod later or not. I've repaired a few of them myself now.

Could someone send me the parts list for the 58v upgrade? Email or pm are fine. My father is an electronic technician so it should be a breeze for him.

Found it in one of my old emails...

From DigiKey.com

The 4 fets for the power supply 568-6993-1-ND
The 4 fets for the main board IPD70N10S3L-12CT-ND
The 8 capacitors (4 of each) P11246-ND , P11276-ND

From mouser.com

The resistors marked DALE R0075 on the poower supply 66-ULRB1R0075FLFSLT
The tiny 0805 resistor that replaces the existing resistor near the capacitor where everybody solders a normal resistor: 754-RG2012P-1821-BT5

Those are all the parts needed for the 58v ficm. I had to order a resistor (dale r0075) because I lifted one. The 0805 resistors are not needed if you just want to use the piggyback resistor.
