Bully Dog Triple Dog Gauge Tuner

Triple Dog Gauge Tuner


The Triple Dog Gauge Tuner (part # 40420) is a vehicle engine tuner, monitor, gauge and diagnostic device all in a single unit. The GT dramatically improves the utility of several vehicle applications by providing an increase in horsepower and torque and by improving fuel economy through better engine tuning. The GT monitors and displays over fifteen different vehicle parameters (PIDs) and it includes our all new Driving Coach feature which teaches end users to maximize their vehicles fuel economy potential. The GT performs vehicle diagnostics by reading and erasing diagnostic trouble codes; this level of vehicle transparency isn’t offered by any OEM or by any other aftermarket product. Also included is our performance testing feature designed to test a vehicles performance capability on the drag strip; couple this with our Free PC analysis software and users can also determine vehicle horsepower. The GT does it all and it works on most late model diesel pickups including Dodge, Ford and GM.

Since the Bully Dog GT will allow you to increase performance, it is necessary to monitor exhaust gas temperatures (EGT) when under heavy load (towing, etc.) to make sure damage does not occur. The key to monitoring EGTs is a pyrometer.

A pyrometer will help the driver determine if their vehicle is operating at safe temperatures. With that knowledge the driver can prevent damage to an engine or turbo charger by safely backing out of the throttle before any real damage occurs. This becomes most important when towing or carrying significant weight, driving in hot weather, driving up steep grades, and of course when participating in motorsports. Anytime a vehicle will be used to its full potential a pyrometer probe should be installed to monitor the integrity of the engine.

Bully Dog Pyrometer Kit
The Pyrometer Probe Kit (part # 40390) comes with everything seen here which includes all the parts and pieces necessary to acquire exhaust gas temperatures to display on the Triple Dog GT.

Installing a Pyrometer Probe Kit along with a diesel Triple Dog GT (part # 40420), unlocks the safety defueling feature for defueling based on exhaust gas temperatures.
