If you previously bought your GT Diesel tuner from Parleys Diesel Performance and just recently purchased a brand new Duramax LML, don’t worry;  you can update the tuner for free, online, using the Bully Dog Update Agent.

This tuner is universal, meaning it works on all Chevy/GM, Ford and Dodge diesel trucks. However, on 2011 model diesels tuning is only available for the Ford 6.7L Powerstroke and the 6.6L Duramax.  The 2011 Dodge Ram Diesel tuning will be available in the future.  Look for more updates soon!

2009 VW JETTA TDI Performance Upgrades

August 18, 2009

2009 VW TDI Performance Upgrades are finally here!  If you’ve been waiting patiently for the chance to modify your 2009 TDI, your wait is over.

True Volkswagen TDI enthusiasts have something to cheer about as new diesel performance parts and Upgrade product releases are here for the 2009 VW Jeta 2.0L TDI Sedan and Wagon. After Volkswagen’s decision not to manufacture 2007 and 2008 VW TDI’S, many TDI enthusiasts have pounced on the chance to buy a factory fresh 2009 TDI Jetta.  With no TDI vehicles coming off the VW assembly line for a few years, manufacturers of VW TDI upgrades had to turn their attention to other product lines.  Now, however, with the popularity of Volkswagen’s new 2009 TDI Jetta’s, upgrade and modification companies have taken note and are again giving car owners the types of Performance products they crave – products that until only recently had been reserved for older model VW TDI’S.

Diesel performance Cold Air Intake Systems and Rapid Power Module’s, or “Chips” as they are often called, are two of the easiest, least expensive, and most effective upgrades you can make to your 2009 TDI Jetta. Diesel engines want cold air to breathe and properly atomized fuel to burn, and an upgraded intake and module will give your TDI just what it needs.  If you are interested in maximizing the full potential of your VW TDI, read on.

To give your Turbo Diesel more cold air, a high-quality choice comes from Advanced Flow Engineering, or AFE Power as they are commonly known. AFE has recently released a Performance Air Intake System for the 2009 Jetta TDI 2.0L with an impressive list of benefits and performance data. The system is 100% bolt-on, mounts to the lower airbox housing, and no drilling or cutting is required. After a simple 15-30 minute installation, you can expect air flow to increase 56% over stock. Horsepower gains average +10 at 3150 RPM, and expect Torque to increase by 23 lbs. at 3050 RPM.  The system comes with a high-efficiency, low restriction air filter in your choice of either a Pro Dry S or a Pro 5R. Most people choose the Pro Dry S for ease of use with filter cleaning being a simple wash and air dry.

Performance diesel parts modules improve TDI fuel economy and provide extra horsepower at the same time by improving the efficiency of the vehicle fuel injection system.  Performance market manufacturer and TDI stalwart Bully Dog now markets a “Rapid Power Performance Module” for the 2009 VW TDI Jetta which effectively improves fuel economy and horsepower. This module is a simple inline, between wiring harness, plug-in chip designed for safe and long-lasting use. It is adjustable on-the-fly, allowing you to choose between three power levels; Stock, +10% and +15% horsepower via a simple toggle switch that can be left in the engine bay or installed within the interior of the vehicle for easy access. The total horsepower increase from this module on the highest setting according to Bully Dog’s Dyno testing is +25HP
and a torque increase of 30 ft-lbs. If you can keep your foot of the gas pedal you should even see some impressive fuel economy gains on a car that already gets remarkable mileage.

Combine the Performance Cold Air Intake System with the Rapid Power Module and you’ll see tremendous gains in horsepower, torque and economy; perhaps most importantly, though, will be the increased fun you’ll have driving your modified 2009 VW Jetta TDI!

Bullydog Diesel Triple Dog

January 23, 2008
Bully Dog Diesel is one of the biggest names in diesel performance and they have been around for about 10 years as of 2007.  One of their claims to fame is their line downloaders that can be switched between Ford, Dodge, and Chevy diesel trucks.  This is a great feature because with any other performance programmer if you buy a different make of truck, you have to buy a whole new programmer for that truck. The Bully Dog Triple Dog and Bully Dog PMT (performance management tool) on the other hand can be changed from one truck to another saving quite a bit of money if the individual buys a different truck or upgrades. Although good luck trying to get a die hard Ford person to switch to anything else and vice versa. There are some that don’t care though.
The Bully Dog Triple Dog
The original one size fits all downloader which has been extremely popular. Downloader’s in general just plug into the diagnostic port under the dash and upload a new program onto the truck for either diesel fuel economy, economy while towing, or performance. The Triple Dog plugs into the diagnostic port under the dash like the others do, but has a few differences. One, you can go to Bully Dogs website after purchasing the Triple Dog and download an extreme program for free. Two, it can be linked up with Bully Dog’s Outlook monitor which is a full digital gauge set up that also allows you to switch between power levels while you are driving. This is something that no other downloader can do.
The Bully Dog PMT
This also plugs into the OBDII diagnostic port under the dash. The PMT is exactly what its name says; it’s a performance management tool. The Bully Dog PMT offers push button or touch screen navigation; both navigation styles come with each unit and are active all the time. It also has a color screen with the best resolution and highest contrast of any screen in the diesel industry. It gives you the capability to display four different engine parameters at a time and gives your twenty engine parameters to choose from. Bully Dog is the only company that has a monitor that will work on all three of the major diesel trucks. I personally happen to be one that is happy driving any of the major diesel trucks so this is a feature that appeals to me. For others it might not matter as much.

Bully Dog Diesel offers the Bully Dog Triple Dog and Bully Dog PMT for all diesel trucks – Nathan Young

To SEMA or Not To SEMA?

October 26, 2007

It’s that time of year again when Las Vegas turns into a Diesel Performance mecca of sorts.  All the other guys in the shop get to take off for the annual SEMA show and the web department gets to stay and make sure things are running right.  Do I sound Bitter?  It hurts even more to live and work on I-15, which is the main thoroughfare that connects Idaho (Home of Bullydog Diesel), Northern Utah (Home of Edge Products) and Southern Utah (Home of Parley’s Diesel Performance) to Las Vegas.

A couple days ago I saw the Bullydog guys getting back onto the highway after a pitstop at the local Flying J and I was half tempted to sneak aboard their rig, turn off my cell phone and just sort of disappear for the next week.  We will see though, I might just make it to SEMA yet!
