IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CALIBRATIONS

1994 to 1997 and early 1999 Power Stroke and International trucks are fitted with smaller volume injectors than the late 1999 and up Super Duty trucks, and as such are limited to increases of about 65 HP for the 1994 to 1997 and 100 HP for the early 1999. Some trucks, depending on tolerances, may be able to utilize up to 80 HP and 120 HP respectively, but we cannot guarantee that the power gains will be achieved. Additionally, the use of specialty files such as Lope Idle or Smoke Show may not function correctly on 1994 to 1997 vehicles due to the restrictions in both injector volume and High Pressure Oil Pump capacity. Trucks with modified injectors are not subject to these restrictions.

1994-1997 TRUCKS WILL HAVE FEWER CALIBRATION SELECTIONS DUE TO THE POWER LIMITATIONS OF THE FACTORY STOCK INJECTORS. ADDITIONALLY, TRUCKS WITH MANUAL TRANSMISSIONS WILL HAVE FEWER CALIBRATION SELECTIONS DUE TO THE PROGRAMMING CHANGES THAT ARE MADE TO SHIFTING BETWEEN TOW AND POWER CALIBRATIONS.

ALL 7.3L PSDs WILL HAVE A MINIMUM OF 15 CALIBRATIONS AVAILABLE.

DUE TO THE LIMITATIONS OF INTERNATIONAL VEHICLES, ONLY 7-10 CALIBRATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE.
 
MODIFICATIONS THAT REQUIRE CUSTOM CALIBRATIONS
  • Modified Injectors
  • Alternate fuels (veggie oil, waste oil, trans fluid)
  • Engine mods such as camshafts, compression changes, cylinder head modifications
  • Modified large single or twin turbos
  • Aggressive high pressure oil systems (Gen-2, Pulse, twin pump, etc.) EXCEPT for Adrenaline, SRP, and Terminator T-500
  • Power Adders (Nitrous, Water/Meth, Propane)

HydraBuilder Encryption Utility for the Hydra Chip™
This simply utility makes it easy to offer your customers securely encrypted calibrations. This helps prevent unauthorized distribution or modification of your calibrations. Simply download and install the utility. Once the installation is complete, run the application, enter the customer's Serial Number from the Hydra Chip™, and then drag the desired files into the file window. The files will be converted from a standard binary (*.bin) file to a Hydra Custom File (*.hcf).

The encrypted files will work ONLY on the designated chip as determined by the serial number.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
HydraBuilder Setup v1.00.0015 Used to encrypt binary calibrations to a Hydra Chip™ Serial Number.
