Got to admit, Bully's Performance shipping and support just top notch.

Well bully dog has been removed from the truck. Update of superchips unit very easy, just plug it in and run update software, it asks you what vehicle you have and just starts the update. Have to wait now, lots to update lol.

Oh I am aware of bully's support and shipping. Andrew has been amazing with me in the past. I will be waiting for the verdict.

OK, first of the unit is less fancy then the BD, but feels more solid. Standard Mono LCD with some small black rubber buttons, I uninstalled the BD off my truck, with the usual 5 times of on off of the ignition, unpacked the Superchips unit, pluged into my USB on the system, the computer saw the unit and installed the communications driver without asking any input from my side. Went to the Superchips web site and downloaded the Updater. Super easy, main page, 5 white squares with info in them, the middle one says "Internet Update" pressed on there and it downloaded the setup, run setup program and ask's you to register your unit, same time you put in your trucks information. once you done that press "done" and it checks if your unit needs to be updated. Mine needed it. says "your unit needs to be upgraded" and there is a button, press upgrade and away it goes. 25 minutes of upgrades. That's it, no harder than that, just plug and update. once finished, unplug and off to the truck.

Plug it in, turns on, no extra power cable, just OBDII plug and your up and powered. I have presently a fresh tank of 87, full to the brim, so I could not install anything more than the 87 tune, I could of installed the fuel saver on but will do that later, my goal is to run through this tank of 87 and then put in some 94, install the 93 Octane performance tune and see how that goes but for now I have to play 87.

OK so now the install process. Kind of scarey but here's how it goes. You have the choice of install, there is a Quick and Advanced, did the Quick one for this test as it will setup the truck with the most used configuration. So press quick install, ask me what I want, performance 93, performance 91 or 87 or fuel saver, oh and there is heavy towing and I think towing. Hit 87, says turn key on and its starts copying the current trucks stock configuration, this gives you a nice little bar with percentages, after about 5 minutes its done. Then it starts perpping the tune for upload, you go through that turn on / turn off thing but only like 2 times compared to the BD which you like have to do it 5-6 times. OK here's the scary part, at one point is says to turn off press ok, then turn on, at this point it sits there saying "please wait" and you wait, and wait like 5 min, you start thinking to yourself oh shit its frozen, and then it beeps and makes you do a couple of things, but yup, thats it, super simple to install if you use the quick install.

Now, how does it feel, well, I only got to go out for a few minutes, work comes before play, but let's put it this way, I only have the 87 tune on, what does it feel like, again, it felt good, I had driven the truck earlier without the BD tune to make sure all was good and I felt it was missing something and the shifting tranny I so hated was back. Now with the SC it feels like there's something there, not sure yet on the tranny but it felt better than stock. One thing I could never do with sticky winter tires was to chirp my tires from a stop, well guess what, Floored it and Chirp, so that put a smile on my face. So that's it for now, tonight I will be checking some of the other options on the unit and will report back what I find. Mostly I will be testing the performance 93 as soon as I can, then for the winter I will go into fuel saver mode. or maybe stay in 87, will see. If anyone has questions please let me know as I will be playing with it tonight.

You have to pair the tuner to the truck first because the trans tuning package is paired to the vin of the truck, so sadly when or if you get rid of it the trans package stays with you truck and the next person has to buy it as well
