PHP Hydra Chips!!!!

Well Guys, we got our stock of Hydra Chips in stock from PHP! Had mine on my truck for a few weeks now and love it, great option for anyone playing with tuning or just want more tune options on their trucks with a display to keep track of what tune you are in while driving down the road! We are also in production of a gauge pod style mount similar to the Edge mounts using the T-
slot style mount for a nice firm solution for mounting your selector! Keep an Eye out for updates on the mounts!

Currently we have 25 of them in stock and we have worked a deal out with PHP to allow us to sell them at $375 with standard tuning, and if you need or would like custom tuning add $25 a custom tune from their tuning library.

Just check his website at Alligator Performance, KT Performance also has the PHP Hydra listed.

Brian at Alligator supplied great customer support, I have not personally dealt with KT so I cant comment on them.

Between the different forums and the manufactures themselves, I don't think you will have a problem with tech support.

I haven't installed it yet. I still have my Edge Attitude/Juice combo installed and am not sure if that is going to cause a problem.

I would like to leave it hooked up, set to stock and replace the Attitude controller with one of the new CTS (Color Touch Screen) and use it just as a set of electronic gauges. But the CTS is kind of expensive at over $450 and I already have pillar mounted EGT, Boost and Tranny Temp gauges.

Definitely a lack of written instructions as in none come with it. I thought it was supposed to come with a USB drive but I got a CD so the laptop that I wanted to use wouldn't work (no CD drive).

But after a while of fiddling around and watching YouTube University on the HydraFlash video

You need to find you PCM's four digit code which is on the PCM itself. I used a lit mirror and read it (backwards) on the PCM connector on the driver's side of the engine bay. Then you use the Hydraflash software and find out you Hex code, then you can select what tunes you want to load on the chip.

Once you get it, it is pretty simple. Watch the video.

Just to be clear....these come with the PHP standard tunes correct? I would assume so, but want to make sure that its acually their's and completely generic one like the stock TC ones are sometimes (not the phoenix).

If so, I'll be ordering one from you in the next day or so.

Yes, they come with a whole bunch of standard tunes, including different towing, street performance, etc.

After you find your hex code, you then scroll through a list of the available tunes from the Hydraflash software, put them in the order that you want and then update/flash (must be online at this point) your chip.

When I did it the first time, I just watched and followed the video.

Good luck.
