opinions, sell ts chip for hydra?

Im hearing lots on the hydra, I have a ts chip with canned tunes on it, which really stink by the way. Should I sell my chip and get the hydra? I am thinking less down time with custom tunes and revisions with the hydra, and more possibilities with the hydra in terms of selection. What do you guys think? Money, can't take it with you, and those plastic cards now, thats free money right? lol

Thats going to depend on you.

Are you going to go big injectors someday, or any single shot really?

Are you the type that wants to experiment?

Or

Do you like to get something right, then leave it alone.

Me I can't leave anything alone... I just finished modifying my damn snowblower. So I have every intention of trying tunes from every vendor I can think of.

If you like to leave stuff alone once its good, stay with the TS, otherwise, Hydra.

Are you saying the hydra is better for big injectors?

No it's not better. It just makes it easier to get new tunes when you get different injectors, instead of sending a chip off to get re-burnt, they send you the tunes and you can do it right then and there.

Yeah what he said^

We have split shot injectors, so if you ever go single shots The truck will not run correctly without a tune
You can drive it its just not the best

You could also see what the tuners charge to burn their tunes to your existing ts chip. After that some offer free reburns if you want to try different tunes. I have php with the stock style tunes and it took about 7 days with shipping both ways to get new tunes. I may send it back eventually if I bump up tire sizes but I'm not going to pay for the hydra as six tunes is plenty for me.

If you already have the TS, it's actually cheaper to just get a chip burner for $250 and then you have the same email capability.

But Shultzer is 100% correct.

In my opinion the ts tunes suck. High egt's while towing, it flattens out at 2500 Rpms, there's nothing there on the top end. I had a issue with starting also, as soon as I received my chip back from php, my starting problems were gone, lower egt's while towing, doesn't flatten out like the canned ts did. For. $150 send your ts to php & have their tunes, you will be happy either way, hydra or reburn.
