Bully dog ?

Hi guys, brand new here and to the trucking world. I just bought an 05 F250 with 90k on it. The guy who sell it to me gave me a Bully Dog triple dog gt. It's never been installed. Would it worth it to install it? Would like to use it to monitor and maybe try one of the canned tune. Are they rough on the tranny? Also, since it is my first truck, will the driving coach thingy help me learn how to drive the truck the right way? Thx in advance, and, no I don't want to know how to make smoke

Re: Bully dog ?

If I were you I would just sell it and try and get a little money out of it and get a sct with custom tunes and some guages or edge insight to monitor things.

well just to inform you we have a guy running around here with an 04 f-250 with 175K miles on the truck and he uses it for everything work daily driver and even pulling. Now his has the six speed in it and he has the triple dog downloader and he swears by it and that truck is pretty impressive on the track as well.

I'm sure it works great, until he has to line up to a truck with a custom tuned SCT.

My buddy ran the triple dog in his 04 F250. He couldn't even run it on the higher settings because the transmission never knew what to do. It would wind right out take way too long to shift, slam gears, backshift and do all sorts of crazy things. He ran it for a long time on a mid-level tune just for mileage. He finally sold it and went with an SCT with Innovative Diesel tunes. Never looked back...
