Hydra chip

So i have been doing a little shopping around and looking at tuners. I previously had a ts6 chip with canned tunes on my old truck. Then i heard some things about the hydra chip and started looking at that chip, and i like it alot more than than the ts chip. My question to you guys is where would i be better off buying the chip from swamps diesel, or full force diesel performance and getting there tunes with it.

Also if it helps i do plan on upgrading the injectors in the truck within the next year or two and i really have my eye on full forces stage 3, 205cc injectors. i do not know what swamps equivalent of these injectors would be.

Re: Hydra chip

Personally I like dealing with php themselves. At least they will stand behind there product.
Some of the other companies won't. They'll tell you to go to php. Which you didn't buy it from, so.....

Re: Hydra chip

That the beauty of the hydra, you can run anyone's tunes. Can mix and match them also.
Been hearing a lot of bad about swamps injectors lately.

Re: Hydra chip

If I have a TS for my OBS with GearHead tunes and want a Hydra, what is the best way to make this happen?

Re: Hydra chip

Are they custom tunes? Or stock gearhead ts tunes?
