Anytime larger injectors are added to a 7.3L, custom PCM tuning is required to not only get the truck to run correctly, but to reap the biggest performance gains from them.
Incidently, what is a Hydra chip? Hydra Chip: The only 7.3L PCM chip that gives you full, absolute control. It's not just a chip you're purchasing… it's a key to unlock world-class performance tuning. Every chip comes with FREE access to our entire library of calibrations for stock trucks. You choose what power levels you load onto your chip.
At the very least, how do you program a Hydra chip?
How much HP can a 7.3 make?
Diesel heads are buying them cheap, modifying them on reasonable budgets, and are making incredible horsepower with them. It's not uncommon to find a '94.5-'03 Blue Ovals with a 200,000- to 300,000-mile 7.3L under the hood churning out 500 to 600 horsepower at the wheels!

'94.5-'99 7.3L: 380 to 400rwhp Either charger can hold up to 30-35 psi of boost for a while, but 40 psi or more is asking a lot for a turbo that was originally intended to see a maximum of 17 to 23 psi.
Registered. So I'm chatting with a guy yesterday about trucks and he tells me his 7.3 had 475HP at the flywheel,, he has Edge stuff on it,, then he tells me that the stock injectors are good up to 600 HP.
The PHP Hydra is a plug in performance chip that provide engine optimized tuning directly to your 7.3 Powerstroke through the PCM data port. A chip that modifies the stock programming to give you more power by changing the injection timing and fuel delivery all within safe limits of the truck's capabilities.
The TS Performance Six Position Chip offers more power at the rear wheels than any other chip or downloader on the market. You can adjust between the 6 settings while driving by simply turning a knob mounted on the dash. No need to pull over and download a different setting while the competition passes you by.
Externally-Located Oil Cooler. It's no secret that the engine oil in the 7.3L Power Stroke gets worked hard. In addition to the 20-60 psi of oil pressure being used to lubricate the engine, the oil in the high-pressure circuit gets pressurized to more than 3,000 psi. This builds tremendous heat extremely fast.
You'll be fine as long as you keep the detonation away. I've seen a stock block handle 18psi all day long. But the stock block can't handle much more than 500HP and be expected to live, they crack down the middle. A bone stock motor will produce around 190-215 FWHP depending on the miles and condition.
Reliability The 7.3L International Power Stroke engine is considered by many to be one of the best diesel engines ever to be equipped in a modern heavy-duty pickup truck/van. Although there are a number of great things about this big diesel engine, it has gained such a following by providing bulletproof reliability.
