PHP Hydrachip

Anybody running one of these yet? Im pretty interested in one. I like the fact there you can run up to 17 tunes and shift on the fly. From everything Ive heard bill is a good guy to deal with so I am curious if anyone has one yet. If so, pros, cons, how it works ect. Thanks!

is it pretty much the same idea as a standard 6 position chip as in i can switch tunes while driving? from what I can tell main difference is 17 settings, usb updating, and a digital screen. Is that pretty much it? I just want rid of this junk flashpaq in a bad way lol. the only and i mean ONLY thing i will miss is my tire size recalibration. Any ideas for that while we are on the subject?

If you know anybody with an auto enginuity you can set your tire size.

The chip. 15 tunes are almost too much but nice. I like being able to upload them without taking the chip out via the USB. I am having trouble printing the tunes out so its hard to remember what is where. Switch on the fly is nice. This is the first chip I've had. Had a superchip tuner in before and hated it. I had to tint the display its a little bright but if you mount it out of site at night it's fine too. It only took 1/2 hour or so to put in.

I absolutely love mine. Bill and Angela have given great customer service. I installed new Stage 1 injectors and the Ex is finally alive. I just wish I would have done this sooner.

I'm looking at a hydra also, just not sure about the 25 bucks a pop for tunes. But it would work nice cause you can buy em as you want and upload them whenever.

What all do you have done to your truck? If you don't have different injectors or anything major the tunes are free
