STOCK INJECTOR LIMITATIONS
1994 to 1997 and early '99 Powerstroke diesels are fitted with smaller injectors than late '99+ Super Duty models, and depending on tolerances, may be limited to ~65-100hp increase. Because of restrictions in both injector volume and HPOP capacity, your Powerstroke may be able to utilize between 80-120hp, although there is no guarantee that your power gains will be achieved. Vehicles with modified injectors are not subject to these restrictions.
1994-1997 Powerstroke have fewer Hydra Chip calibration selections due to power limits of their factory stock injectors; manual transmissions have fewer Hydra Chip tune options because of programming changes made for shifting between towing and horse power calibrations. All 7.3L PSD's have a minimum of 15 calibrations available.
