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!

    After talking with a Riffraff rep I decided to go with the Hydra chip for my 97 auto f350. Installation was straight forward and I love the usb cable for retuning it without pulling the chip. I’d recommend it highly.

    Going from a 6 position chip to the php was the best choice I could have made. Tons of options with the php either with their library or personal tunes while connected to your ride.

    Hydra Chip for 03 Excursion 7.3

    Posted by Adam H. on Apr 2nd 2019

    Buy it! Do it! Yes, it makes that much of a difference. Improved shift points, better throttle response, better towing. As always Riffraff's service was great. Had to call PHP's after hours line; they were super helpful, got me fixed up quick (operator error...). If you have the funds and you're on the fence, go for it; you won't be sorry!

    Great upgrade from my TS chip. Fast shipping, ordered and had tracking within an hour. Even with free shipping my order was delivered in 2 days. Easy to program, way better tunes than the ol' TS chip. A++ all around.
