Q: I recently purchased and installed. Love it! In what circumstances would I use the "high idle" program?
A: Using to warm up the truck faster or keep the AC cooler. Please leave us a review. Thank you.
Q: Good evening,
I have a 2000 Ford F-250 7.3L and have been looking into this PHP Hydra for a while now and am pretty close to ordering it. I just want to ask an expert rather than read forums one last time to make sure that this is what I’m really looking for. My truck has an AFE cold air intake and a 4’’ exhaust. Other than that I’m pretty much stock. Injectors and everything else is stock. I currently have a 35hp banks chip (which I know I will need to remove) but am just looking for a little more.
I just want to make sure that this chip is safe with mostly stock engine. I’m looking forward to seeing more power and performance with this chip as well as getting some smoke when wanted.
I understand you can get the 15 tunes with it but I’ve also seen a lot mentioning custom tunes. How does the custom tunes work and will that make a big difference? What will I need to do in the future if I want to change up tunes?
Overall, I’d just like to know for sure that this will be a solid purchase over others such as the TS 6 position.
I look forward to hearing back from you,
A: This chip is designed for a stock truck and it's completely safe as long as your only tow in the tow settings. Custom tuning isn't needed for stock injectors. If you purchase the extension cable you can change your tunes with a laptop without having to pull the chip.
Q: Does the php hydra chip still come with the ffd logo on it? Is it still an option?
A: All Hydra's come with the Full Force Logo on the switch.
Q: Typically how many tunes are available for a 94.5
All stock except it is intercooled
Most interested in tow tunes and economy
A: Typically there are about 10 tunes for the OBS Powerstroke. Also there are about 3-4 tow tunes available.
Q: what tow tune do u guys put on the chip if there isnt any requests
A: Usually a heavy tow and a light tow.
Q: Will the chip come pre burned to my pcm for will I have to send it back ?
A: You have the option in the product. Send blank, program 6 tunes free, or program max tunes $10.
Q: Does it have a display to watch your fuel mileage? If not, what would be a good device in addition to this that would?
A: No this doesn't. You'll want to look at the Edge CS 2or CTS2 to display that information.
Q: I have a 1999 e350 van with a 7.3. Would this be considered an early 99 or a 99.5?
Q: Two questions. I’m unsure if my truck has a modified valve body in the transmission. What will occur if it does and I use stock tunes?
Also, I have a Banks Trans Command module. Can that module still be used with these tunes, or should it be removed?
A: If you have a modified valve body the truck will shift too hard. We suggest to remove the Banks Trans Command as the chip has the same functions included.
Q: 1995 f250, I just installed stage 1.5 injectors and doing a ZF5 swap, but keeping the original PCM. thinking of buying this tuner however, it wants a PCM # to be programmed according to my research. If I am running the manual trans and bypassed the auto trans control of the pcm, can this tuner be custom tuned for this scenario ?
A: We can convert your PCM with a
PCM Conversion Auto To Manual available in our store.
Q: I'm getting ready to install stage 2 single shot injectors into my truck. I have the Hydra chip already with stock injector tunes. I also have a Turbo upgrade (88 mm), one off 4" aluminized intake, Trans built for 700+ HP Where do I find the tunes needed for the injector upgrades? Thanks
A: Go to our injectors section. Then you'll see Custom Tuning. They'll be there.
Q: i recently upgraded my valve body and my accumulator body, i have 180/100 full force injectors, i am wondering if my shift points are going to be changed/ improved shift points. i am currently running a ts6 chip with these mods, am i going to notice a difference? the ts6 was bought back when i was running stock injectors and a stock valve body/ accumulator body.
A: The way I read this is you don't have injector specific tuning. With that and the upgraded transmission you'll need custom tuning. There will be a very big difference in what you have now.
Q: What is the 6 stock tunes provided if that option is chosen?
With the FFD display does it offer green LEDs on the display?
A: You can pick the 6 tunes if you want. Also you can request the green LED. Both should be done in the checkout in the messages section.
Q: Can you adjust for different size tires with this tuner?
A: Only through custom tuning can you adjust the shift points.
Q: Can I get mild tunes ? For my stock 7.3 but I would like one somewhat hot tune so I can dump smoke on my wedding day
A: We can do the tunes any way you'd like.
Q: Where can I buy just the cable that goes from the PCM to the selector.
A: Search out site. Hydra chip ribbon cable. Or copy and paste this link. https://shop.fullforcediesel.com/hydra-ribbon-cable
Q: I have an 02 F250 7.3, what are the free 6 tunes that come with this?
A: We put on the most popular. Typically Hi-idle, heavy tow, light tow, daily, race and extreme. If you'd like to leave what 6 you prefer when ordering we can try to accommodate that.
Q: I have a few questions:
1. Is this tuner chip effective with a manual zf5?
2. What tunes come with the program max 10-17 with stock injectors?
3. And without any add ons what comes with this product?
Thank you for your time.
A: Fits all 94-03 7.3 Powerstroke. All tunes that are not redundant that are available. Comes with switch, cable, & chip.
Q: I have a modified tranny with a valve body and triple disc converter. Does this change the tunes you would install?
A: For stock injectors the database has modified valve body tunes included as an option. You would choose those tunes.
Q: I installed the hydra chip works great but my edge evolution will only display the egt on my gauges why is that?.
A: The Hydra should have no affect on your Evolution.
