Bully Dog BDX Programmer Review

Bully Dog BDX Programmer Review


Hey everyone! Greg from CARiD.com and
welcome back to the shop.And in
today’s video you and I are going to look at an
inexpensive performance mod one that I personally think is a must-have for any
F-150 EcoBoost owner. It’s from the team that eats, sleeps and breathes horsepower
and that would be Bully Dog. And this is their BDX programmer. So in this video I
am going to break down every single aspect of this Bully Dog BDX tuner
including its features, capabilities and of course how much power you can expect
to gain. Alright guys so here it is – this is the Bully Dog BDX programmer for all
17 and up Ford F-150 trucks equipped with the 3.5 liter EcoBoost engine. Now I
want to start things off by saying I love this EcoBoost engine and even though
Ford did increase the power on the new 2018 engines to 375 horsepower it is
still incredibly restricted from the factory. And that’s exactly what this Bully
Dog BDX is for. Now on the full-blown 93 octane tune this programmer can give
your F-150 gains of 149 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque. These are
insane jumps and power for any vehicle but especially for a pickup truck. But
the full-on performance tune is just one of the pre-programmed Tunes
offered by this tuner. It also comes equipped with a 87 octane performance
tune for those of you guys out there that don’t want to spend your extra cash
on premium and even on the lower grade octane you can still expect to see gains
of 81 horsepower and 72 pound-feet of torque. But those are just a pre-program
tunes on this BDX and you can also store up to 20 custom tunes on this programmer
and it has a Wi-Fi connection capability. That means that your performance shop
can go ahead and send a tune right through the cloud that you can download
right onto this BDX programmer. Now of course guys the main reason that most
people do purchase a programmer is for the increase in power. But this BDX from
Bully Dog does a lot more than just that. Now next time your check engine light
comes on instead of taking it down to a shop paying for a diagnostic fee you can
actually scan and clear codes right through this BDX.
It even has the ability to display live engine data or you can store it and view
save data right into your PC for fine engine tuning. This BDX tuner also gives
you the ability to rewrite other software for your F-150. Now one of the
biggest annoyances from most new F-150 owners is the auto start/stop function.
Now with the BDX programmer you can completely disable this feature so you don’t have to worry about hitting the button to turn
it off every single time you start the engine. Now you can also adjust things
like engine timing curves, rev limiters and even calibrate your speed up for
larger tires. This is a fantastic all-encompassing tool that can benefit
you at every step of your F-150 build. Now to use the guys first thing to make
sure that the programmer software is up to date and if it’s not you can either
connect it directly to Wi-Fi or even to your PC to perform the update. Now once
the tuner is updated you simply plug it right into the obd2 port on your F-150
then just select the prompt to program the vehicle. After you select the tune
that you want the programmer is going to do all the work and walk you through
each and every step of the entire tuning process. When you’re done you’re simply
going to unplug the tuner, get your truck out on the road and start feeling that
extra 149 horsepower. Well everyone that’s going to include my review today
of Bully Dogs BDX programmers. So if you own an F-150
EcoBoost and you want to get the most power out of your stock engine head over
to CARiD.com now to check out this BDX programmer from Bully Dog and while
you’re there you can go ahead and check out all the other amazing performance
accessories that they have to offer. And as always I’m Greg from CARiD.com and
