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 tuner

    Posted by Clint thomson on Aug 8th 2019

    Install was fairly straightforward. Silicone dipped connectors cleaned up no problem and worked like a charm. Only thing i didnt like was the options for the tunes, as they didnt have the modified valve body on the list i got online based on the number i submitted from my box. Which was considering i seen it on so many of the other ones. My 7.3 is a 2000 so im able to go upto 140hp tune. All of the performance tunes roll alot of coal lol. But the 80 daily driver which i typically use doesnt and the difference is negligible anyway. Bottom line awesome chip with fairly straightforward install as well as updating and programming. Thanks riff raff great product

    What a difference this tuner made on my truck. Way more power, almost no smoke even in the hot tune. It is like a brand new vehicle again. Two thumbs up for fast shipping as well. Ordered late in the after noon on a Wednesday and had it on Friday. Even had tracking with in 45 mins of ordering. Hands down best company to deal with.

    All I can say is "WOW". I had the edge revolver first, hated it so much I returned it within a few days of gettin it. Then I was like "spend the money and get the Hydra chip."
    So I did, and it was the best choice ever!!

    This chip is awesome! Super easy to install once you figure out where the bolt is for the PCM. YouTube instructions were great. It really woke the truck up. I can't imagine going back to stock (even though I put it on stock setting on occasion to see what I was missing out on).

    Tip: Make sure to actually use fiberglass or packing tape. I used electrical tape and the chip would wiggle loose and shut my truck off randomly. I threw parts at the truck until I decided to pull the chip/PCM to see if there were any issues. I cleaned the contacts up a little more and used packing tape. No issues since!
