    What tune does to the truck? My truck is lifted with 35 inch tires. I am thinking to tune it but I am not exactly sure what it will do and is it going to effect any warranty? And also it will not turn on the engine sign light on? And how much it usually cost?

    A bully dog is $380 shipped. It will optimize certain aspects of your truck so that it drives how you want it to.

    The nice part of a bully dog over other tuners is it’s options. You can adjust to your liking: throttle response. Shifting characteristics. And of course power!!

    Please feel free to call me with any other questions and to order your bullydog.

    Bullydog is by far the best option. And it will not affect warranty because you can take the tune off without being trace. Get the bdx from keith best price around.

    I LOVE my bully dog. I think the dyno sheets for my truck showed like 43 HP added at certain RPM. I can feel it off the line. It will hit your MPG though. Also I turned off the seat belt chime, disabled the speed limiter, and a bunch of other cool stuff. The truck will web me when temp rises above a certain point for transmission, engine, intake, etc... I took my truck to the dealer recently and uninstalled the tune in about three minutes. Sooo easy. Hope this helps.

    The 43 is without mods like the TRD intake and exhaust so I’m sure you could bump that number a bit.

    I'd like to know how it's untraceable. How do they get the performance if it's not written to the ecu?

    Keith from dirty deeds can go in more depth with this question but when you remove bully dog from the truck Toyota sees a flash but they cant see from what. They cannot prove that bullydog was used...

    That is all a manufacture needs to see to deny a claim. I know because it happened to my STI I had. The model year I owned was 2008 when Subaru had issues with ring-lands cracking and they knew there was a discrepancy in the ecu from being modified. They could not tell what was flashed but the vehicle was modified at one point. I had to payout out of pocket for the repair and then about a month or 2 later they had to replace the shortblock when it threw a rod. At that time I had not modified the vehicle and they covered the repair.

    Sorry to hear that and it really depends on the dealership too but in Reality our 5.7 engine are very reliable never heard of any issues with our engines only the cam tower leaks.

    It is written to the ecu. Toyota doesn’t have any method of reading what tube is on the ecu. They only know if the ecu has been hard reset. That’s it.

    They don’t see that it was flashed, they have no way to see if it was flashed or not. They also have no way to read what is in their ecu. They can only see when an ecu was hard reset. Just unplugging the battery hard resets the ecu.

    Does Bullydog work on an ‘08? Last time I looked, I only saw ‘10 and newer listed...

    OK, thanks! I assumed it would cuz there is no real difference between an ‘08 and ‘10, I just wanted to make sure there wasn’t some software or computer issue preventing it...
