Description

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! Features: Hydra Chip package includes the chip, digital switch, ribbon cable, and USB cable. 17 TOTAL POSITIONS including built-in Module Bypass (for diagnostics or emissions testing) and No-Start Easy to read TWO DIGIT removable display switch that mounts on any flat surface for maximum convenience Optional dash-mounted USB cable and bracket for permanent installation Program/reprogram the chip using the optional USB extension cable and bracket Supports most competitors’ calibrations Fully compatible with PATS-equipped vehicles Update and Reprogram ONLINE using our FREE HydraFlash

1997 F250 7.3 easy install and huge power
Installed this on my 1997 F250 with the classic 7.3 I have intake and full turbo back straight exhaust everything else is stock. With the Hydra chip the truck is a completely different beast. I was debating between the Hydra and TS6 and chose the Hydra simply because of the extra space for tunes to load onto it. I can’t explain how impressed I am with the amount of power the pre built tunes from Jelibuilt are. It’s a day and night difference even on the Lowest +40hp. I daily drive my truck on the +60hp and it drives like a brand new modern truck. It pulls hard and you can feel the increased torque. I would recommend buying as soon as you’re done reading this, I put off buying any chip for over a year and had I’d known the difference where going to be so drastic I would’ve bought it a long time ago.

Works great! Almost too much hp from my 2001 7.3.
Shipping was fast. Installation guide was easy to follow. Kit came with everything to install and load. Only thing that would have made it 5+ star, would have been to include a 90deg micro USB cable to make it effortless to install new loads. $5 later I had a cable and installed the tuner.

Best money you will spend on your truck!
Best money I've ever spent on my truck. I had an old edge tuner before and the switch to my new Hydra tuner was night and day. The truck has more power across the hole rpm range and I can easily hit 20psi of boost at part throttle instead of having to be a full throttle like before. My truck also shifts much better than before too, the shifts with the old tuner I had were very harsh and shifting from 1st to 2nd felt like you were getting rear-ended. Now the transmission glides through all gears as smooth as butter. This is a must have for any powerstroke truck.

This was the best purchase I have made for my 97 F250. I was not really sure that this was going to be a good purchase but this chip really works. I was amazed how much this charged how my truck run. I have a full exhaust on the truck and cold air intake.

Best thing to happen to a 7.3 since the ts-6!
Great product! Came with a link to instructions on the hydra website. Easy to follow and the ability of so many tunes at you fingertips while going down the road! Excellent hardware for any 7.3 owner. I suggest it to all!

Terrible Design, Will not Work Correctly, Unable to Return and Out $300++
Powerstroke diesels are a hobby of mine and I have many years of experience working with 7.3's and 6.0's both. This is by far the worst tuning product that I have come across. I have used multiple tuners on several different powerstrokes with outstanding success and this is without question vastly inferior. I followed the instructions to a tee and consulted with several diesel mechanics to verify that I was installing correctly. Everything was done by the book and as instructed by Hydrachip. The product not only will not work correctly, it appears that it may have also damaged my truck but because it's electrical there is no option to return. So much for Amazon Prime I guess. Oh well. Very disappointing and will be buying another Diablo, SCT, Bully Dog or other tuner that works well and functions correctly. This has also got to be the worst designed product in the history of mankind. There is no way to easily get the chip in and out of the PCM without cutting a large hole in the bracket and having the chip stick out visibly inside the cab. Just an awful experience all the way around. Avoid at all costs. If I could just undo the damage caused I would be happy, but I am going to have to spend substantially more just to get the damage repaired. Sad!

This is the tuner for any 7.3! I promise!
I’m absolutely amazed! Very skeptical as to how this chip could give my old obs f350 the driveability of my 06 tundra. For my obs it wasn’t the easiest install, but it definitely not bad. Had a buddy help me, and he isn’t a mechanic by any means. Unfortunately it doesn’t come with a 90 degree cable to keep the usb in the pcm but it’s not bad to remove. Truck is no longer a slug, more like a buffalo. Still heavy but it got some get up and go. I have a crew cab long bed. The truck is almost 5tons, but it accelerates much better. The shift points are much better, something I thought was just all talk. It really drives smoother with much better acceleration. Great tunes from php right from the program. I think for the price, you can’t really beat it. And I’m not one to throw money at an old truck. You’ll be glad you bought it if you were on the fence. I scrounged the forums to decide between this and the 6 position and I’m glad I got this one. My 90c injectors only can push about 80 hp no matter what. So if I decide to upgrade to bigger injectors I can pop it out and program the new tunes without sending it in. Helps a lot if you can’t afford downtime if you haul truck. All in all, it’s the best upgrade I think I’ve made. Other than gauges. Already have the intake and exhaust taken care of. It’s like a whole new truck!
