Most people that run a tuner on their 08-10 truck want to run one that allows them to remove their DPF and provides safe/reliable transmission and engine tuning. I don't know much about the Bully Dog, so I can't comment on the engine/trans tuning aspect of it, but I do know that it doesn't allow you to remove the DPF....which is about the only way to see any big fuel mileage increases. You also can't make the power with that tuner that you can with Spartan, SCT, and H&S.

I have a cat/dpf delete done on my truck and it works with the BullyDog tuner.I have not tried the transmission tune though. Was not sure if it was a good idea or not to use it. Guess my question is should I be using it?

When did Bully Dog start doing DPF delete tuning for the 6.4???

As far as transmission tuning goes, what are he horsepower settings on the tuner?

I have the tuner stacked with a Flo-Pro dpf delete which the funny thing is I don't even have the Flo pro module plugged in anymore and it still works. I usually keep it on the performance setting which is 75+ hp and 125+ torque. Extreme will take it up to 120+ hp and up to 250 torque
