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!

    Great Tuner for the average to professional person!!

    Posted by Ryan B. on Apr 28th 2021

    What can I say Riff Raff Diesel always has great shipping and quality products!! Packaging was great, including instructions were more than ample. Install would have been straight forward and simple had the tinning on my PCM been a little thicker... I hit a hard bump after installation and the chip was able to partially lose contact causing a loss/stuttering of the throttle. I re-tinned my PCM contacts chip went back on nice and firm... Problem solved!!! Easy to change tunes, easy to download different tunes and WOW !!! My goal was driveability and fuel mileage, I gained both plus more useable power!!!

    Pho hydra install and first impression

    Posted by Rob on Apr 10th 2021

    I’ve seen people say they damaged their vehicle installing this product, those people should not be servicing their own vehicles. Easy to follow step by step instructions to an already simple task. If you follow all the instructions and I mean all the instructions you will have no problems. It says all over the packaging and the online instructions that you have to clean the contacts thoroughly and the truck will not start until the chip is programmed.

    Installed in My 99 7.3

    Posted by Turnerline on Mar 10th 2021

    Installed 2 week's ago and have no complaints at all, improved power, response and fuel mileage. I'm not technologically inclined so the ease of installation and programming was essential
