At his point, the GT Tuner from Bully Dog has been around for a hot minute. In our opinion, that is a good thing. Combining the capabilities of an engine tuner with the practicality of a digital gauge cluster and a diagnostic device has made Bully Dog’s all-in-one apparatus a massive hit with consumers.
The system is inexpensive, easy to install, a cinch to assess and operate, and now offers owners of 2018-2021 RAM trucks one more reason to love the Cummins 6.7-liter diesel motor.
Late-model RAM 2500 and 3500 owners will find that Bully Dog’s claim that its GT Tuner “dramatically improves performance” is indeed spot on, with each vehicle model receiving its own unique power gain figures.
But before we get to the dyno side of the story, here’s a handy little side note worth remembering. Bully Dog’s GT Diesel Tuner & Monitor allows operators to peruse over fifteen different vehicle parameters via its LCD display. Additionally, the brand’s patent-pending “Driving Coach” feature offers tips in real-time for increased fuel gains between fill-ups.
What Does The Bully Dog GT Tuner Really Do?
Some other features worth noting include this tuner’s ability to read and erase diagnostic codes. Obviously, that is super handy in even bone stock trucks. There is also Bully Dog’s very own performance testing feature. This system registers vehicle horsepower and torque, providing those looking to test their retuned rig on the drag strip an opportunity to do so safely and accurately.
So how much of a power increase can 6.7 liter Cummins engine owners expect to see from one of Bully Dog’s on-the-fly tunes? More than you might think.
