Bully Dog GT-T+ Toyota Tuner (40450) Development Thread

Hi all,

As most of you have heard, Bully Dog has finally cracked the Toyota ECU and has been working on a handheld tuning device that will work on a variety of newer Toyota models. From 20hp gains on a stock Tacoma, to over 70hp+ on a supercharged Tundra, the Bully Dog 40450 GT-T tuner is the ECU product we have been waiting for.

Thanks to the participation of many members of TW, several units are entering into the final testing stage and we expect a late September release.

Check out this promo video BD has released showing HUGE gains on a TRD supercharged Tundra

This probably won't work with the URD Maf Calibrator would it? I have both a 2010 4Runner and a 2011 Tacoma.

The only thing I would worry about with a handheld tuner, is the fact that it is directly writing and changing the ECM logic. This leaves evidence behind if something should go wrong. Unlike the Unichip, X1, UCON, etc, that do not write to the ECM.

A tech at a dealership does not look at code, willing to bet BullyDog is only playing with parameters in management files and not the registry that Toyota already accesses with the dealers interface. keep in mind the dealership techs arent looking at code.
