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 Stock Injector 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 Windows based 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!

    Well explained, easy to follow instruction video, and always fast shipping. The hydra so far works great. I put it in a truck I'm restoring and it's not back in service yet. My son-in-law loves the one he's got in the 7.3

    Install only takes about 30 minutes. Install videos made programming the hydra straight forward, and shipping was fast. I had tracking with in 2 hours of ordering and UPS delivered it the next day.

    Just did my first drive out to the desert with my 5th wheel, what a difference. I have had this truck for 15 years with the stock ECU tune. Night a day! Love all the different programs. At 50% throttle it just pulled the hills from sea level to 4000ft with ease.

    Ordered Monday afternoon and it was at my door Tuesday morning. Really woke up my old 2000 7.3 and I love the ability to switch on the fly.

    Ordered on Thursday and received on Friday. Install was straight forward and pretty simple honestly. I would recommend to any one upgrading from an old DP Tuner ship or TS 6.
