Default Does anyone have favorite settings for their Bully Dog?

Looking to see if anyone has tweaked their Bully Dog to get more performance. I know audio and video integration, performance is not quite my specialty. I am interested to hear if anyone has recommendations.

I'm running the 91 Octane tune on my BD GT and I'll never change it. I upped the rev limiter to 6300, i left the neutral rev at stock because it's stupid to rev your engine in neutral... 1-2 WOT shift point at 5800 and 2-3 at 5740. I believe the HEMI's max out at around 5700, stock was 5600 not sure what the factory was thinking there. I messed with my shift points for a while and I've been happy with this setting thus far, you just have to experiment with whatever you run quickest with. If you have any questions just let me know man

Cool thanks Dcollins. I will mess with mine today. I am more concerned about MPG and efficiency than anything. I will see what I can do on those mods today!

So far I am doing mostly town driving. I live right on the edge of our town and take 2 quick country roads to work. Running about 55mph all the way there. I was averaging about 14MPG. Now with a bit of interstate driving I am holding steady at 16mpg. The Bully dog is helping me not gun the truck and showing me the energy used and acceleration issues. I feel the truck is a bit more smooth. I cut the resonator off and have not purchased an exhaust yet. Not sure if she is breathing better or more hard. I know you need the perfect in and out. So far I am only showing 2mpg better. Slowly but surely.
