Bully dog tuner takes forever to come out of "engine warmup mode" any idea or input?

Hi, I just installed the 40420 Bully Dog Gauge Tuner GT in my 07' F250 6.0 diesel. It works great, I love it. However, it seems to take an excessive amount of time to to come off "engine warmup mode". The engine will reach 168-170 and stay at that temp, but tuner won't come out of warmup mode for some time after that. It takes probably 12-15 minutes to go into operating mode after startup. Also, I am in florida so it is warm here.Thanks for your help!

You won't find many people running a bully dog set up in here. An SCT programmer with custom tunes is the only way to go with these trucks.

If your motor is only reaching 170*, your thermostat is stuck, you need a new one. Operating temp for the 6.0 is 190* +/-.

I'm going to replace the thermostat as suggested and see how that works for me.

WarChild,

I live in Tampa. Are you by chance headed to Bradenton for the Southern Diesel Performance Outlaw on the 24th? I'll be there
