i'm new to the powerstroke world. always been a ford guy though. I just bought a 05 250 with the 6.0. It has had the head gaskets and head studs done. I just installed the bullydog triple dog gt tuner and was wondering if anybody out there is currently running it and if so what you think of it?
A lot of the 6.0 owners started with bully dog or edge and have since moved on to better products like a SCT with tunes from different tuners like innovative, gearhead, truck source, elite and a few others.
Well, I truly think that people that bash the triple dogs have never used the triple dog... I have had one for the past year and a half and have been pleased with it.. it has been custom tuned to my truck by the installer here in wilmington nc...That is what he told me and so far i realy have no complaints... If you read the manual it will help understand how the setup works... the guages are great and the shift on the fly works as advertised... my truck is my DD so its nice to use around town, then power it down to pull boats and horses with the push of a button.. now that being said im sure custom tunes with the sct are nice, but i couldnt say because i have never used them... just my 2 cents.. I realize this is my 1st post here but i have been around this forum for a while just taking good notes from those who know a lot more about the 6.0 than I...Thanks..
As rob stated i started out with an edge platinum. I loved it. I then borrowed a triple dog i liked it to. neither one screwed with my tranny. I now have an sct and the fact remains the same...an sct isnt for everyone. The bullydog and all that work just fine if you dont wont to unleash the beast.
To tune the tranny you must flash the truck. Shift on the fly is using the adaptive learning. To do adaptive learning correctly you are wasting more time that swapping tunes. It is all what you want. If you want the best then you get the best. If you want less get a all in one jack of all trades easy to use gadget.

thanksfor the information guys! I have another question. After i installed the triple dog i was able to hold the brakes and blow a ton of black smoke out the exhaust. but for some reason now it will not do that anymore at ALL! It blows black smoke when i get on it going down the road but will NOT do it holding the brakes on. WTF?
So what is the problem? I pulled the egr valve and cleaned it and its moving freely. Doesnt look like the passage way where the valve sits is wet at all. . . .the soot in the bottom looks dry. So what might be the problem?
