i dont drag race i road race obviously you dont know enough about engines. i also worked as an auto mechanic for 10 years.

also tell the op what gauge readings would show danger. someone that doesnt know how to read gauges will not know when to back off the gas.

You road race a diesel truck? That's the first I have heard of that. Obviously you don't know much about diesel engines or you would know why having boost and egt gauges is important and not be giving out bad information. A transmission temp gauge is good to have on any automatic behind a diesel or gas engine. An egt gauge is important because if you egts run high for extended periods of time you can burn up valves, melt pistons, or damage your turbo. 1200 degrees is the safe limit for egts, and back when I had stock the injectors and turbo I could hit over 1200 degrees going uphill unloaded in the PHP 60 hp eco tune, in the higher hp tunes I can get to 1200* even quicker. Boost is good to have to make sure your truck is running right and doesn't have any boost leaks, a stock 7.3 will max out at 17-19 psi, and about 30 psi on a hot tune, which is also about the limit for your stock turbo, it will also let you see if you have turbo surge which is what killed my factory turbo.

The standard tunes from Bill (PHP) work just fine, some people having shifting problems but a custom valve body usually cures this issue. If you get a Hydra I suggest some gauges so you can monitor EGT's, etc...... I believe they are having a Black Friday sale on the Hydra you might want to check out their web site.

Not sure why you want to break my stones for asking questions. Irrc, I first asked about the tps when someone mentioned the Hydra, then I asked about tps vs Hydra and based off that I decided if I do it Hydra is the way to go so now I am asking specifically about the Hydra. IMHO it shows a progression (tps, tps vs Hydra, Hydra) so in my mind, this board has done for me exactly what it is designed to do.

Thanks everyone for the responses. I hoped there would be more consensus.

Thanks Corey. When does the TC lock on these stock canned tunes? Will I have to order custom tunes to lock the TC?

Lol not bustin stones you’d know if I were. Just pointing out that if you had used the search function on google and this forum you’d see exactly what everyone was saying here. I would have kept my fat mouth shut but you asked multiple times in different threads if you should.

Trust me I get it you like your truck and want it to last but want some oomph. we like ours and want the same (usually).

When you install the hydra keep us updated on what tunes you like and if anything comes up that is odd.

Interested in learning something new?
