Default Bully dog tuner 2013 5.7 hemi, worth it?

Hey guys, ive got a 7 inch lift and 35s on the way and ive been debating on whether or not i should buy a programmer to help regain power/mpg loss from the bigger tires, i came across a bully dog for a really good deal, what do you guys think about them? Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Ive personally heard and read better things about the Diablo Sport than the Bully dog, but I havent bit the bullet and bought one yet so I can't testify from personal experience... LOTS of info on the forums if you search bud.

Cheers and goodluck

Don't expect miracles. (IMO) These tuners are only going to benefit you if you put a Lot of money into other mods and get a custom tune based on those. As far as gaining MPG back. You have a 7" lift and 35's, so your pretty much screwed as far as squeezing any mpg's back out of that.

I wouldn't waste my money on one. I have a superchips 3840 and its much better, although other forum members are having issues with the SC tuner. I'm going to try the bullydog on my moms challenger r/t and see if it is any better on that particular vehicle.

I bought a superchips for my 13' been almost a month and I am still waiting on them to get the program to work. It won't work on my truck even though they offer it for 13's.

Jkelly941, I used the BDGT Hemi plus on my 2012 Ram. I had a cold air intake and magnaflow muffler and ran the 91/93 performance tune. The difference from bone stock is night and day. And now that I'm in a 2014 Hemi, I'm waiting on Bully Dog to develop new tunes. But like mtnrider said, with a 7" lift and 35" tires, don't expect fuel economy to stay the same as stock.
