    Great ProductIt is truly amazing. Installed it 2 days ago. The whisper mode alone is worth 100.00. Running mostly 65 daily driver and that alone is worth buying the chip. So far mileage seems just as good as stock. The 80 or 100 performance mode surprised the hell out of me.

    Haven't towed yet. I'm assuming the 65 sipper mode is for distance travel.

    Its one hell of a product!!

    great addition to ANY 7.3l powerstroke. Installation was simple, and having the ability to have a no start, high idle, tow and daily tunes all in one easy to use unit, Simply awesome!

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.
