Bullydog vs SCT

Ran SCT for about a month. i have to say i really wasnt impressed. blew smoke when you mash it then went and didnt seem that fast, not like my bullydog, tires always broke loose way easier then the SCT. Seems to have way more power and faster get up and go. Not sure what all the hype about SCT is.

Did you run custom tunes on your SCT? Or just the SCT factory tunes

Ummmm... prepare to be bashed.

I'm not going to bash you, but rather ask you a few questions.

1. Did you get custom tunes for the SCT

2. If so, who tuned your SCT, and what files did you run?

3. Does your BullyDog tune the transmission? (rhetorical question)

4. How does that BullyDog shift compared to the SCT (if you had custom tunes)?

I ran tow, street and looney from quick tricks (aka DJ) The bullydog does tune the transmission, not quite like SCT but it does change pressures. SCT shifts at around 4,000 rpm. Bullydog shifts when it feels the need to. Tow tune was like pulling the trailer with stock engine. Street was maybe equal to my tow tune with bullydog. Looney was pretty good, didnt run to hard on that, but i did play with it.

A friend of my that runs a bullydog on his 05 hates my sct... we tryed it on his truck and it was a dog. these were canned tunes tho and i had to agree that his bully dog had way more balls than the sct. hopefully the tunes im gonna get for eric are better then his bully dog.

IMHO I think someone is smoking crack here! Not every truck is gonna react the same to every tuner. I know for a fact what kind of tunes that Vivian writes and I can't believe that did not compare to the Bullydog. Oh btw there is WAY MORE to tuning a tranny than changing the line pressures. The Bullydog does not tune the tranny as does the SCT does. But as most folks say, I am just an old lady and don't know much.

To the OP. I read something on another forum about the Bully Dog tuners not returning the trucks back to a true stock tune. Thus, when loading another tune, it made the truck feel sluggish. I may be though.

But I heard the only way to fix it is to be reflashed by Ford.

I definitely don't believe that. Well, atleast the part about not knowing much.
