I also asked them a few questions while I had Austin on the phone,

1) Did Bully dog buy the encryption codes off of Chrysler
a) No, we actually cracked the code.

2) will this leave any traces in the ECU.
a) if you bring your truck to the dealer, just put the ECU back to factory State, all they will see is that the ECU was accessed, but they cannot see anything else.

3) Where does the info for factory state get saved
a) a copy is saved on the header and one on the SD card, but if something where to happen to the unit and both instances of the ECU where lost, they have a copy of it on there servers if needed.

4) Does the Bully Dog need to stay attached to the truck all the time
a) no, download the program you want, 85+ , 91+ or Factory state and then remove the BD from the truck.

I will be talking to them next Tuesday so if anyone has question, post them, I will get answers at the same time
I SAW THIS ONE IN THE OTHER THREAD ALLREADY!!!!

its cool though I do the same thing all the time

God damn I want a tuner. Was the best mod I did on my JK Wrangler.

let us know how you come out, I am excited to see how the tunes work for everyone with th 4.7's as we are thinking about getting a 2010-2011 ram 1500 short bed with a standard tranny dropping it to the ground and modding it up, but power will be a big part!

swap it out, I have a tranny guy here local that does amazing work on standard trannys I might also try to find a 08 4.7 with a standard I had one for a little while and loved it, but I like the way the 4th gens look alot better so would rather go that route

Thanks

Spoke to Bully Dog today, actually they called me to get my engine code again. They said it will be out Thursday afternoon around 4pm there time. Also I asked him about the traction control on our truck and he was more than happy to let me know that last Friday they finally got traction control turned off and it will be part of the new upgrade tune. Will post info on Thursday night as to how this Bully Dog does effects my truck.

That is awesome about TC. Like everything else tuner related, though, I'll believe it when I see it lol.
