Power Hungry Performance Hydra 17 Position 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 LED switchbox. Using the up and down buttons on the switchbox, you can change your tuning preset on the fly.

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. 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 PHP! Just plug it into your computer and download your selections.

This feature is especially helpful if you order a custom tune from Power Hungry Diesel--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! If you purchase the in-truck USB dash adapter, you can even plug your laptop into the chip from your cab while it is still installed in your truck!

    Absolutely love the hydra, only wish I would’ve ordered from someone that offers tunes with purchase. Disappointed with 1023 as I prefer their tunes but they don’t seem to want to offer them.

    Hydra flash is super easy to use, programming in your tunes is super easy and the install is not that bad. The most difficult part of installation is definitely making sure you get all of the silicone off of pcm so you can get the chip to properly read, I had the pcm in and out of the truck probably 4 times before it was clean enough to work properly ( NOTE: you can get the pcm clean enough to turn on the chip but not enough to get your tunes to work, pull the pcm back out re clean a bit more then it’ll be good) Also haven’t really got to take advantage of the tunes yet as my trucks HPOP is very very weak

    Excellent installation instructions. The chip adds significant torque at the push of a button, and placing up to 15 tunes onto the chip is easy. My dash display was too dim to read and I had to use Google to find out how to increase the brightness so minus 1/2 star. Also, using a ribbon cable (which goes from the chip to the display) externally is not good practice. I'd rather have a more rugged cable - minus 1/2 star.

    Amazing! Previous owner flashed the computer and ran like junk. The Hydra tunes completely woke the truck up and took care of the drivability problems.

    I bought this chip for my 99 f350. Using this chip was a little more involved than I initially thought when purchasing the product, but had I done more research, I would’ve learned that you have to remove and clean your pcm in order to use the hydra. That being noted, getting the pcm clean is a tricky task as it is difficult to see clear silicone. I used the edge of the wooden handle that I received in the box, and was able to get the pcm clean on my second try (yes, I had to remove my pcm a second time because it was not clean enough the first time). However, now that it is up and running, I am extremely impressed with the improvement of power in my truck, completely stock. I highly recommend this product
