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!

    I didn't know I NEEDED this until I installed it!!

    Posted by Erik Hall on Apr 18th 2024

    I have a 95 f250 powerstroke. My only modifications smaller turbo housing, wicked wheel 2,bigger downpipe straight exhaust and a regulated e-fuel system. I bought the ts-6 many years ago ONLY for high idle as this is just a plow truck. Even on stock it shifted hard and horribly, I assumed trans was shot. I changed the ICP sensor and same shifting. Figured I'd get a hydra try it and get onto saving for a new transmission. This truck has NEVER shifted this great, nice and smooth and in power the whole way! As far as performance, I daily drive on the 80hp daily, I get 26mpg! I drive this truck everywhere now! Barely any smoke even on performance setting ( I have the OBS 90cc injectors) but this thing gets up and goes! I recently started pulling my 19' double axle car hauler and with full sized crew cab 3/4 tons on the trailer and 80hp tow setting it pulls great! EGTs never get over 1100* . All in all one of the best investments I've made to this truck. My other daily is a 500hp lifted 09 Silverado on 37s and let me tell ya it sits ALOT now that this powerstroke performs so well! Only wish is it didn't ride like a piece of plywood pulled behind a car lol

    Great for giving the speed you need

    i drive a 1997 obs f350 for reference
    drives like a dream, i can finally drive on the road without having a backup of people behind me and a horrible mpg
    i have no idea if this is related or not but it will expose your small fuel system leaks

    Had ts-6 , didn't think I needed hydra

    Posted by ERIK HALL on Mar 27th 2024

    First off the only mods on my truck are e-fuel, regulated return, wicked wheel 2, 1.0 exhaust housing, 3 inch down pipe, 4 inch exhaust. I originally only ordered the TS-6 for the high idle function as I didn't feel I needed any more power. Then the turbo leaked and I upgraded it. Then the fuel system leaked and I upgraded it and then I found that using the tuner I was getting horrible shifts. Unpredictable harsh. I talked to myself into ordering the Hydra and is the best thing I've ever done for this truck. The shifts are butter smooth but firm. The power feels double compared to the TS6, and I'm extremely happy about the whisper mode. I was so tired of turning my truck off at the bank or fast food. It was ridiculous. Best option yet! Next is going to be bigger injectors and I know that there will be tunes for the Hydra that will take care of those also.

    Great tuner BUT...

    Posted by Sal on Mar 22nd 2024

    The tuner helped a huge amount with bringing the truck alive and i still recommend it BUT I purchased in 11/2023, installed it Jan 2024 and now I'm already having issues with the switch. Have to click the button repeatedly for it to hopefully switch it of dead pedal tune. I understand the switch is a piece that would need replacement at some point but not after only 2 months of use, not to mention I only get the opportunity to drive the truck MAYBE 4 times a month.
