If it is new and has never had tunes on it then yes. It comes blank.

Just a tip. You need to go to tools and then click on box/hex conversion. Put in your code for your computer and it will tell you what tunes to use.

Re: 7.3 hydra tuner

You do not have to load tunes on it before hooking it up. If you install the USB adapter (which is the main advantage of the hydra in the first place), then you can load the tunes after it is installed. Truck will not start until the tunes are loaded however.

Re: 7.3 hydra tuner

If you put the Hydra in the "0" position it will default to the PCM program/tune.

Yeah, but you don't have to do that. You don't need to put "stock" as a setting, because its built into 00, just like ns is no start.
