Bully Dog has released custom tune files capabilities to their GT Platinum series programmers, and, we’re excited to add Bully Dog’s New Custom Tunes to Diesel Techmagazine’s newest build truck, Project LBZ. With the release of the new custom tunes, Bully Dog customers can continue to modify their vehicle and rely on one programmer to meet their ever growing needs.

“We’re excited to extend more value to our customers and allow them to unlock every ounce of power from their vehicle by using custom tuning technology leveraged from our SCT brand,” said Scott Barbour, vice president of sales for the Bully Dog and SCT brands. “Gone are the days where you outgrow the pre-loaded tune files and have to swap out programmers. Now there is no limit for the GT Platinum series. Customers can benefit from superior, custom tunes specifically designed for their vehicle and its modifications to improve performance, economy and overall drivability.”

“The addition of custom tuning to the Bully Dog GT devices allows us to open up custom tuning for trucks with modifications that pre-loaded tunes could not accommodate,” said Eric Eldreth, owner of Innovative Diesel. “It provides custom tuning to existing Bully Dog customers and new customers who like the look and feel of the Bully Dog GT Platinum device.”

With Derive Advantage custom tuning software, the GT Platinum programmer can hold up to 10 custom tunes in addition to the pre-loaded calibration files.Additionally, a custom tuning upgrade opportunity is available for current GT Platinum customers and is free until April 3rd 2015.

“Using the GT Platinum Diesel device you can now unlock the true potential of your 2015 – 6.7L Cummins, 6.6L Duramax and 6.7L Power Stroke,” said Tim Roi, marketing director for the Derive Power brands – Bully Dog and SCT Performance. “It is our mission to keep delivering new applications and this is just a sample of what’s to come,” he continued.

The Bully Dog GT Platinum Diesel 2015 applications offer the popular benefits diesel owners demand—switch-on-the-fly power adjustments, download functions, tune safety protection—defueling, monitoring via virtual gauges and more!
