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 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!

    Not so Happy Tunes

    Posted by Herbert Taylor on Feb 9th 2021

    I’ve been dealing with PHPHydra about shifting issues on the transmission. They keep saying that the tuning person would look at it but I get no recourse. They want me to get custom tunes, which costs more. I’m at a loss. I may just return this thing. Very disappointed with the product.

    Amazing improvement over stock tuning. By far the best upgrade to date.

    Hydra tuner

    Posted by Salvador Curiel on Jan 24th 2021

    Hydra tuner gave me great gains on power on my 2001 F250 7.3 power stroke, only con is that when I installed it it makes my speedometer flick back and forth like if it was the rpms of something my speedometer goes crazy and a circuit to my glow plug is being marked on my OBDll still trying to figure out why that was cause but other than that Towing tunes work awesome and also daily driving tunes work well but it needs working cause it shifts up and down when your cruising but does have a big gain when your throttle it and feels lighter.

    Easy Install and Great Value

    Posted by David Eberhardt on Jan 18th 2021

    It took me a total of 40 minutes for the install and download. I watched a bunch of review videos to make the decision to purchase then install videos to make sure I knew all the steps clearly and It couldn't have gone more smoothly. I downloaded all the tunes included and they will more than suffice until I can get a custom tune for my current set-up. I shouldn't overlook the 5+ star service from Riffraff Diesel, I ordered on Sunday and it was at my door Monday. I'll be back for more RR Performance parts.

    An excellent programmer for the 7.3. Not difficult to install if the directions are followed. Nice that the 90 degree USB cable is included. Plenty of included tune choices that are compatible with my PMT1 box code PCM. I like the shift strategies as well, and the flexibility to chose standard or modified valve body versions of the same tune.
