THIS CHIP COMES PREPROGRAMMED WITH 6 CUSTOM TUNES FROM GEARHEAD AUTOMOTIVE PERFORMANCE
This is the chip we recommend if you decide to put SINGLE SHOT injectors in your 1999-2003 7.3L Powerstroke.


Why is a Hydra Chip Tuner from Power Hungry Performance more valuable with 6 custom tunes from Gear Head Tuning than a regular Hydra Chip Tuner? What other upgrades negate the need for custom tuning on my 7.3L Powerstroke?

 

The Hydra Chip Tuner from Power Hungry Performance becomes more valuable with 6 custom tunes from Gear Head Tuning primarily because of the customization and optimization it offers for specific driving conditions and aftermarket performance upgrades. Here are some key reasons why these custom tunes add value:

Tailored Performance: Custom tunes are specifically designed to enhance the engine's performance based on your vehicle's modifications and your driving preferences. This can include adjustments for fuel efficiency, increased horsepower, torque, and improved throttle response.

Vehicle Modifications Compatibility: If your 7.3L Powerstroke has undergone modifications like upgraded injectors, an upgraded aftermarket turbo, enhanced air intake, or exhaust systems, the custom tunes can be specifically calibrated to work seamlessly with these changes, maximizing the benefits of each modification.

Driving Conditions: Tunes can be optimized for different scenarios such as towing, daily driving, or performance driving. This flexibility allows you to switch settings based on your current needs without compromising the engine's potential or safety. Daily drive your truck to the track in your best fuel economy tune, once you get to the track, throw on the slicks and put it in the most powerful drag racing tune. If you are a sled puller, same concept!

Improved Engine Management: Custom tunes can enhance the engine’s management system by refining the fuel maps and ignition timing, which can lead to a more efficient and smoother running engine. Diesel engines, unlike gas engines, generally get better fuel economy the more they are modified. 

Regarding other upgrades that might negate the need for custom tuning on a 7.3L Powerstroke, it largely depends on the level and type of modifications. Generally, certain upgrades may not strictly require custom tuning but would still benefit from it.

This version of the multi-position Hydra chip features custom tuning from Gearhead Automotive Performance to best match your specific parts combination to maximize horsepower. This version of the Hydra chip still offers up to 17 on the fly tuning options and comes with a two-digit removable setting display switch, optional dash-mounted USB cable, built-in module bypass for diagnostics or emissions testing, **and MOST IMPORTANTLY, makes it possible to reprogram your chip without removing it from the PCM.

**additional usb cable required for reprogramming without removal of chip. cable not included.

    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. Additionally, the use of specialty files such as Lope Idle or Smoke Show may not function correctly on 1994 to 1997 vehicles due to the restrictions in both injector volume and High Pressure Oil Pump capacity. Trucks with modified injectors are not subject to these restrictions.

    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.

MODIFICATIONS THAT REQUIRE CUSTOM CALIBRATIONS

  • Modified Injectors
  • Alternate fuels (veggie oil, waste oil, trans fluid)
  • Engine mods such as camshafts, compression changes, cylinder head modifications
  • Modified large single or twin turbos
  • Aggressive high pressure oil systems (Gen-2, Pulse, twin pump, etc.) EXCEPT for Adrenaline, SRP, and Terminator T-500
  • Power Adders (Nitrous, Water/Meth, Propane)
  • All Modified Transmissions except for BTS Valve Body, John Wood Valve Body, or Trans-Go Tugger Kit
