IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CALIBRATIONS
1994 to 1997 and early 1999 Power Stroke and International trucks are fitted with smaller volume injectors than the late 1999 and up Super Duty trucks, and as such are limited to increases of about 65 HP for the 1994 to 1997 and 100 HP for the early 1999. Some trucks, depending on tolerances, may be able to utilize up to 80 HP and 120 HP respectively, but we cannot guarantee that the power gains will be achieved.
1994-1997 TRUCKS WILL HAVE FEWER CALIBRATION SELECTIONS DUE TO THE POWER LIMITATIONS OF THE FACTORY STOCK INJECTORS. ADDITIONALLY, TRUCKS WITH MANUAL TRANSMISSIONS WILL HAVE FEWER CALIBRATION SELECTIONS DUE TO THE PROGRAMMING CHANGES THAT ARE MADE TO SHIFTING BETWEEN TOW AND POWER CALIBRATIONS.
ALL 7.3L PSDs WILL HAVE A MINIMUM OF 15 CALIBRATIONS AVAILABLE.
DUE TO THE LIMITATIONS OF INTERNATIONAL VEHICLES, ONLY 7-10 CALIBRATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE.
*Due to injector size, stock 1994 to 1997 trucks can only order calibrations up to 80HP. Early 1999 can go up to 100HP. Late 2001 to 2003 PSDs can not order the 140X tune because they have Powdered Metal Rods.
|Great Customer Service and Absolutely Killer Chip!|
|cameron l. on 07/13/2017||Can't say enough good stuff about my experiences with PHP! Their email responses (Dylan is who I worked with) were prompt and answered all of my questions clearly and directly. Once I received my Hydra Chip and Opened it up I was impressed with the presentation of everything in the box. Installation of the Hydra Chip is very straight forward and simple (Just make sure to get enough of the silicone off of the PCM and don't clean the contacts all of the way down to copper!). My Box/Hex Code for my truck was not in their software so I shot an email over to Dylan since on the Hydra help page it says they will recommend another Box/Hex code for your truck, which he did very quickly. Programming the chip is very easy with minimal confusion. My truck is basically stock with only an upgraded 3" downpipe and 4" straight pipe exhaust and holy cow did these tunes wake it up! I figured it would come to life a little bit but not nearly as much as it did! On the 80hp performance tune my truck will chirp 4th! ESSENTIALLY STOCK! I can't wait to start doing more power mods to the truck and get some custom tunes in there. My only complaint is that the ribbon cable that goes from the chip to the display could be about a foot longer, but by no means would that stop me from buying another one. 5 out of 5 for everyone over at PHP, they have another very satisfied customer who will be coming back for more products!|
|Steve H. on 04/15/2017||Night and day difference coming from the edge evo. The Hydra has a lot smoother power over a wider rpm range, lower egt's and less smoke for the same horsepower tune. So far I've tried tunes for the original hex file for my truck and the recommended hex file and I like the older tunes better, the trans shifts firmer, they feel like they have more power and lower egt's at w.o.t. cruising egt's and pulling hills at part throttle are about the same between the two. The one thing I like about the newer tunes though is the converter doesn't unlock on down shifts.|
|Best buy so far!|
|ANDREW G. on 04/14/2017||I have had multiple 7.3s, I put larger I hectors in my truck and she ran rough!! I put the hydra chip on with power hungry get tunes and man has my truck come alive!! And what's awesome is when I do the fuel system or the trans next I can just plug my computer in and BAM new tunes! This chip and the es saved my truck. I could not be happier (unless it also gave me like 30mpg).|
|Best customer service around,true American product|
|Ryder D. on 04/04/2017||I have had nothing but the best customer service and such a great quality product and experience with php, would highly recomend their work to anyone looking to purchase or speak with this company. A++|
|Awesome Product and Great Customer Service|
|Bristin C. on 04/03/2017||Switched from a TS Flip Chip to the Hydro. Had issues getting good contact when installing, sent my PCM and Hydro back to get the issue addressed. Received a phone call letting me know the issues and solution. Just finished installing and test driving. I like the hydro way better, the power curves are smoother and EGT's are running lower.|
|Baron G. on 03/28/2017||Absolutely well worth the money! By far the best investment I have made in my vehicle yet. The engine tuning makes great power and my fuel mileage increased over 3 mpg. The transmission tuning totally fixed the soft and poorly timed shifts of my automatic transmission. I also purchased custom tunes for my aftermarket injectors. The tunes did everything I wanted them to and more! This made my worn out pickup feel like a whole different new vehicle!|
|My experience with the Hydra tuner.|
|David G. on 03/27/2017||Gotta say, I am very, VERY happy with this Hydra tuner. I had a competitors tuner and pulled it out after 4 weeks. Losing 3.7 mpg wasn't Ok especially after reading so many negative comments about the rate of motor failures with their 80hp tune! I loaded the 65hp towing, 80hp DD, 120hp and 140hp in my Hydra. With the competitors 80hp tune I could not ease into the throttle soft enough to keep the tires from spinnjng on my icy driveway. With every setting on my Hydra I get no wheel spin ... very important here in Alaska! My truck is so much easier to drive with Bills tunes, and it sure accelerates nice, REALLY nice. And, such a great staff to work with, thank you Bill and Angela for all your help!|
