Default hydra 2.7 in my hands

I got my 2.7 box today from hydra, but it has no base map on it. Anyone have a clue if the 2.6 software will work on this thing? I would rather not fry the **** out of it.

To quote the bible:

MY NAME IS JEALOUS

And yes damnit ask hydra for the 2.7 software. Programming the trims etc should be cake but I wonder if all the spark/timing settings are the same.

who is your hydra from originally? FM?

Just got word back from hydra, they will be getting a new version of the software Monday or Tuesday and old versions of the software will not work.

Guess I will just have to wait. **** sucks, I have not been able to drive my car in 6 months due to weather and the ecu being ****. I WANNA MOTHER ****** DRIVE IT SO BAD.

holy trees with dicks batman Hydra just emailed me the software, I am pissing myself with happiness.
The software looks a bit better then the old stuff. Lucky for 2.6 users, there is a function to import a 2.6 map.

will do, I am going to wait on getting a base map from Jeremy at FM. There is a TON of **** here. Unless someone can send me a base 2.6 map setup for 550s to screw around with. That would be mue bueno.

So I converted my 2.1 map to a 2.6 map to a 2.7. A few things get fucked in the process. mostly looks like individual trims for the ignition and some of the stuff for VE tuning. The ignition was set to -64 degrees for each coil, speed limiter set to 0mph. Some of the idle stuff is set wacky and needed to be fixed. Maybe I can start my car soon?

Looks like most of the outputs are kinda screwed up, and using different names. Going to take a bit to get it set up. Alternator control looks like it will be a lot easier to do, it has a specific map for it now and needs PID values.

Subscribed, 2.7 upgrade is coming in next week. Jeremy has sent me a map converted from 2.5. Hoping it won't have too many issues.

So how much of a PITA is it to get my 2.1 map up and running on a 2.7? My reservation is the fact that my car is my DD so down time is a huge deal to me....and I get frustrated easily when **** isn't running right. If I can't get my map swapped over and it running buttery smooth right off the bat, I probably won't spend the $750-$1,000 on the upgrade.

Why would you bother to upgrade Doppel? What interests you?

Mostly the improved start-up and seperate a/c trims as well as some of the other trims. The long-term wbo2 is pretty damn attractive as well which would be nice when I turn the boost up a bit or get my hands on a squaretop manifold...no need to go get retuned for the increased performance. Running a/c with the 2.1 is "meh" at best when no on the highway...coming to stops is a PITA. For the most part, 2.1 has been fine for me and my goals.

What injectors are u running? I think improved start only applies for ID/DW injectors.

For $1000 you could buy a megasquirt and use it to run your A/C. As a hydra owner I think Hydra needs to die. Their pricing is retarded and they deserve no money for these crap upgrades.
