    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.

    Unless I am missing something. But doesnt the TRD supercharger make the tundra have 502whp? Bully is only getting 470hp?

    Bilsteins front and rear, front set to 1'' and rear are 9'' 5125's, OMD springs in the rear, CSJumper LED's inside, hard wired inverter.
    Any chance of this tuner being able to work on the 1st gen taco, with the 3.4 v6?

    Nice - but will it have the ability to modify/customize tunes, or will you only be able to load a pre-loaded tune and that's it?

    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.
