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 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!

    Hydra chi

    Posted by Jay Call on Feb 2nd 2019

    Tired of lugging around a big ole 7.3 engine that just doesn't seem to perform as it should? Well I was 2 yrs ago and decided to call call I've ever made. Took two yrs to get it all done , I'm on a budget and gotta keep momma happy......
    Installed the hydra in her last night and let me say....."let there be power"
    I'm speechless. If you want to "un-hobble" your pony and let er run, Clay is your man. Well made, fair priced components all fit well as advertised....except when I failed to follow instructions .

    Take your time to clean the contacts... I couldn't figure out the Hex code thing and loaded the wrong programs and the truck wouldn't start... Then I figured it out and it fired right up... HUGE DIFFERENCE

    Works great. I love the ability to switch tunes on the fly. Programming and installation was easy following the online instructions. Really woke up my Excursion 7.3.
