Help bully dog gt tuner

Help guys just bought a 08 f250 king ranch love the truck hate the tuner, I had an 02 duramax with just a plug in super chips and it makes this thing feel like I bought it at walmart. Want the power want the mileage don't want to make a ton of mods. What are my options?

I would just do some reading on here and make a decision based on that......I would look at these.....SCT , spartan or a minimax.
Lots of 6.4 guys are running them and are very happy with them from what I have been reading.

Does the tranny relearn apply to all these tuners?

You could do a simply tuner, intake, and delete pipe upgrade. That should get you what you are looking for. Check out the link in my signature if your interested in Spartan. I am also available for questions (PM or email).

Some sort of relearn is good to do, but it's really only necessary with bigger tunes.

With the cheaper gt tuner didn't seem like it should have been necessary but you can't even get on the throttle without this thing snappin or slippin. Had the truck in for service no tuner of course everything is good. 37 k don't want to break my truck. Is it just the tuner?

I would bet money on it being the tuner.....I have been in BD tuned 6.0 and the trans didnt like those tunes at all....but switch to SCT and it shifts fine.
I bet you will notice it on your 6.4
