Power Hungry Performance Hydra Chip for Ford Powerstroke 7.3L 1994-2003


The Hydra Chip includes 17 total memory slots for tuning presets (15 tuning presets, NO START, and MODULE BYPASS) to get the most performance and efficiency out of your truck no matter where or how you are driving! On the old, 6-position knob-style chip, you could never tell what preset you were running unless you counted the knob's clicks. On the new Hydra Chip, you can always see what tuning program you are running with its convenient green LED switchbox. Using the up and down buttons on the switchbox, you can change your tuning preset on the fly. Don't forget we also offer optional billet aluminum flush mounts for a clean OE install into your dash.

When you purchase the Hydra Chip, you will have the ability to load 15 specific tunes for your truck make/year. The Windows software program is a FREE Download. This Download will allow access to the complete inventory of PHP Standard 7.3L Tunes all at no additional charge. Tunes for modifications like injectors or dual pumps aren't included. The USB connection on the Hydra Chip itself will allow you to load tuning presets to your chip without having to take it to a dealer or send it back to us! Just plug it into your computer and download your selections, even while installed on the PCM.

This feature is especially helpful if you order a custom tune from a custom tuning company--they can email you the file (which is specific to your serial number) and you can install it yourself from the comfort of your home! Your Hydra comes with the USB extension cable adapter, you can even plug your laptop into the chip from your cab while it is still installed in your truck!

    This is a well made, easy to install item that works just like they say it will work. With the fuel sipper/+65 HP tune I get 22 MPG at 70 MPH (empty), perky acceleration and crisp shifts - I love it!

    Unreal. So easy to install and now my 7.3L is alive. The power increase and smooth shifting is incredible. This is by far the best money to spend on performance

    Ordered this chip a few weeks ago upon reading reviews and seeing a friends.

    Definitely not disappointed!!
    I am blown away by how much better my 2001 F350 runs on any program.
    So far I’ve been mostly just using the 80hp daily driver and have not tried pulling a trailer yet.
    Install was pretty decent once the computer is outta the way.
    Just make sure the cleaning instructions are followed to the tee!!!
    Programming was simple and easy as well.

    Riff Raff diesel was unbeatable to deal with as well!
    I was surprised at how quick they shipped the chip to me in Canada too.
    They most definitely have my business from now for parts for my old truck.

    All in all I am very happy with the whole thing.
