Bully Dog BDX Programmer & Monitor Review

Everything you need to know about Bully Dog’s BDX Programmer And How to Get $40 Off

Tuners and programmers are one of the easiest mods to improve performance on a diesel truck. They can provide a serious boost in horsepower, torque, and fuel economy. Not all tunes are the same though. There are box tuning packages which offer generic tuning and custom tuning designed specifically for your truck. I recently received the Bully Dog BDX which is unique because it offers both box tunes and custom tune capability. It does significantly more than just program your truck too. I’ve spent a couple of months with the product and I wanted to give you guys my final thoughts. I liked the BDX so much that it made it to my list of best Christmas Ideas for 2019. Here’s everything you need to know about the BDX tuner and monitor.

What Can the Bully Dog BDX Do For You?

The Bully Dog BDX gives you more control over your diesel truck than you’ve ever had. Not only can you adjust powertrain performance, increasing horsepower and torque, but you can also keep an eye on important vehicle information, and adjust so many features on your truck. The BDX allows you to adjust settings like tire size or the speed limiter. You can even force a manual regeneration to clean that dirty Diesel Particulate Filter!

Easy, Reliable Monitoring & Data Logging

A little over 2 weeks ago, I bought my first Powerstroke and I conveniently had two of Bully Dog’s latest products, the Bully Dog BDX and the GTX laying around to help me. They actually helped me in my purchasing decision of the truck. After a visual inspection of everything on the truck and driving the truck like a maniac for an hour, I decided to plug-in my BDX. I had to go through a couple of screens, but then I was able to search the truck for any diagnostic codes. Luckily enough, there were none. But having the Bully Dog BDX handy gave me peace of mind. If there had been any codes, I’d have known about them before I bought the truck. A good monitoring device is so valuable and is a must-have for any truck owner.

The Bully Dog BDX is Highly Configurable

I’ve always been a fan of the digital monitors to monitor my trucks’ vitals. Everything you need is on one easy-to-use screen. For a daily driver, it definitely beats having multiple gauges all around the truck. The BDX gives you close to a dozen pre-set gauge displays that you can configure to your exact liking. You can set up your own display featuring the specific parameters you want.

Bully Dog BDX Available with Box Tunes & Custom Tuning Options

I mentioned at the beginning of this article that the BDX is very unique. It offers standard box tuning for guys wanting a simple solution, while also offering custom tune capability. Unfortunately, not all trucks will have the standard Bully Dog tunes available. Before you buy the BDX, I recommend calling and making sure there are tunes available for your specific truck. Certain vehicles will need custom tuning as tunes directly from Bully Dog or SCT won’t be available. Even though my BDX came with boxed tunes for my 2014 F-350 Powerstroke, I chose to purchase a set of tunes from Innovative Diesel.
