      • Guaranteed Maximum, Safe and Reliable Power
      • Pre-Configured Bully Dog Tunes
      • Built-In Wi-Fi for Easy Updates via the Cloud
      • OBD-II Data Logging and Monitoring
      • Diagnostics Tool - Reads and Clears DTC Trouble Codes

      Increased Horsepower and Torque. From the factory, the manufacturer programs their vehicles to cater to the needs of the daily driver, not the performance enthusiast. After loading a Bully Dog pre-configured strategy tune on a vehicle, even a bone stock, unmodified 5.3L Silverado 1500 will realize noticeable gains in horsepower, torque, performance and fuel economy.

      Increase your Mod's Potential. Factory computer settings are calibrated for the original factory components. When making performance modifications, you need to recalibrate the vehicle's computer to realize the full potential that these modifications can achieve.

      Wi-Fi Updates and Cloud Tuning. The Bully Dog BDX Performance Programmer is Wi-Fi-capable, meaning it will always be up to date. Once setup with your Wi-Fi password, the BDX will download the latest firmware updates via the internet. Besides firmware updates, your BDX can also download your custom tune files via the cloud, reducing the hassles of transferring files from your pc to your BDX device.

      Data Logging and Monitoring. BDX's Performance Programmer makes it easy to read the Built-In Data Logging and/or the Real Time Data, so you can view popular sensor data such as EGT, Air/Fuel Ratio or any other 0-5 Volt source. You can even customize the monitoring capability of your BDX using Derive's free Livelink software.

      Diagnostics Tool. The BDX Performance Programmer can also be used as a diagnostic code reader. Save yourself hundreds of dollars each year by reading and clearing your own Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) rather than paying a dealer to do the same. It's as easy as a few simple steps.

      Easy to Load; Easy to Restore. When you load your custom tune on the vehicle, the tuner automatically stores your vehicle's factory settings. To return the vehicle to its factory settings, just plug the tuner back in, select the option to restore the factory settings, and you're done. This is ideal for visiting dealerships for warranty work.

      Bully Dog BDX Adjustable Parameters:
      • Axle Ratio
      • Tire Size - Rev / Mile
      • Idle RPM
      • Traction Control On / Off
      • WOT Shift

      * Not all adjustments available on all vehicles.

      Application. This Bully Dog BDX Performance Programmer is specifically designed for use on 2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 models equipped with the 5.3L engine. Please note that this programmer is not legal for sale or use in California on pollution controlled motor vehicles.

      It's highly recommended to download Free LiveLink and Updater Software. The LiveLink Application is used to view, data log, record and playback your vehicle's PCM data on a laptop computer. The Updater Application lets you update your device's Firmware, Tune Revision or to load Custom Tunes onto your device. Requires Windows Vista/7/8/10 and an internet connection.

        1 2018 - EricZ71 Installation Time: Afternoon

        Painfully slow and no pre-loaded tunes

        Be prepared to take a half day of vacation during a weekday, and spend a few hours between your truck, laptop, and phone while initializing, downloading, connecting, registering, updating, calling tech support (FYI Mon-Fri only), then finally uploading. The internal processor on this unit is super slow. It's like watching something download on a 56k modem in 1998. After all of the updating, etc. mine has no pre-loaded tunes and all I'm able to do is change a few settings such as DOD, tire size, and shift firmness. Where's the rest?? Does not include TPMS as promised. 10/10 would not buy again.

        Was very skeptic about bullydog, worth it!

        I’ve look all around the web and noticed there’s not a whole lot of good reviews about BDX tuner. Totally worth it once installed, took me about 30mins to install, requires WiFi. There is noticeable increase on power on my 2018 5.3. I have AFE stage 2 and borla atak exhaust that goes with it.

        Not compatible

        Website said it was compatible with my 2018 Silverado. After receiving tuner said no supported files. Contacted tech support and they sent my stock data to engineers to write a time for it but after a month and calling twice a week I finally gave up and returned unit. The manufacturer isn't very helpful. Seems like they would jump on fixing their problems since they stated it was compatible.
