Personally I have not used either, but from what I have read stay away from the Bullydog. I haven't read anything good about them yet.

Man, what a good wife. My gf was going to buy me a 600$ stage III cam for my tdi for christmas until she heard me complaining one day about how I cant get one because i'd have to machine the sh*t out of my block/heads. But what a great wife you've got!

Only problem is, bully dog and edge aren't... good... at all. They burn up auto trannies (unless you have the add-on trans-command), they sky rocket egt's, eat fuel, advance timing a ton, etc.

truthfully, I'd sell the bullydog/edge, and without her knowing buy custom tunes. Or find a tuner who will load custom tunes onto the programmer and keep the gauges and dont tell her.
