Freddy: Today on CJ Off Road we're going to show you how to improve the performance of your EcoBoost with the help from Bully Dog.

The EcoBoost F150 is a powerful truck right from the factory but there's no such thing as too much power so today we're going to show you how to improve the performance of your EcoBoost with this Bully Dog GTX tuner. I have Joni from Bully Dog, what can you tell me about this?

Joni: This is the newest and latest and greatest. We haven't had a big monitoring system plus tuner in quite some time so we're pretty excited about that. It also has some really neat features that we haven't had with any of our programmers before. For example, you actually can update this device via WiFi. So no running back and forth to a computer with cables and the guys that have a Mac they're really going to like this a lot. It also has more room for more customs tunes now. It actually has 20 slots instead of the 10 which we used to have which is really nice. Five inch capacitive touch screen as easy as using your cellphone which everybody has these days. It's actually really nice, really excited to introduce it.

Freddy: Since we already have custom DynoTune on our 2018 F150 we're not going to install this on our F150 but we will show you how to install it using a Mustang GT and that's the same exact process.

All right so Joni's going to walk through the process of how to use the device. Just like everything, your tuner, the first step, plug in the UB2 and then plug in the device to turn it on.

Joni: Once you get it plugged into the diagnostic port, this is something that a little different than we've had with our other programmers. This is called a VIM. It's a vehicle interface module. This actually has to plug in directly to the HDMI where beforehand you just plugged directly into the device. So you go ahead and connect that then the next thing is the mag cable. This is part of the actual mounting system for the GTX. There's a little USB side on this. You plug it into the other side the VIM. There's a T slot adapter on the suction cup device so you just slide the mag cable onto it until it's snug. And this the best part the way that this actually connects to the mag cable. Pops on just like that and turns on right away. Immediate interaction with the device so we're really excited about that, that's a neat feature. It will power up immediately.

I would like to mention that as you can see this cable is a little different than what we've done before. We used to have HDMI cables that were really thick and round which are really hard to hide. This new ribbon cable makes it really easy to do the installs clean so that you don't have a lot of cables hanging out. Once that's all done we're going to go ahead and the very first thing that we want to do is update. And of course this is also a really amazing part of this programmer. No computer necessary.

So go ahead and select the update. It's going to want us to turn the key on so we're just going to hit the button once and continue. So we're going to configure the WiFi setup.

That's our network that we need. We're going to enter in the password. It's connected to the WiFi and it's retrieving our data. You can also see that that's going to be how they let you know that you're connected to WiFi is your little icon in the corner. And sometimes some of these transfers do take a moment so a lot of that's going to depend on your WiFi speed. If it goes slower than you want don't worry about that, it is just going to take a moment to pull those files down in accordance to your WiFi speed. So now it's going to load your firmware. This is loading the VIM application. So it's actually talking to that piece that I had shown you earlier.

As soon as the updates are done then it'll just take you back to your home screen again and from here this is where you can tune your vehicle. We're going to go into tune. Turn the key on which it already is so I'm going to hit continue. It's going to retrieve your data. So it's actually pulling information from the vehicle. There's your disclaimer which you have to accept so we're going to continue. And this is where it's going to bring you up your options. It's already reading the vehicle. It's a 2.3 liter Mustang so we're going to go ahead and hit that. We're not using any custom tunes so we can skip this. And again we're going to confirm that that is the correct vehicle which it is. And again while it's going through this process it's really important that you do not interrupt the download. So don't start the vehicle, don't unplug anything, just let it run.

So this is one thing that's really nice about this particular programmer is it's telling you everything that it does as it goes along as well so there's no guesswork and it give you instructions so as long as you can read you can tune your car or truck. And that's also one of the things that's going to happen when you're doing these downloads is it's going to start setting off everything. Bells and whistles and chimes. So the more things you have turned off the better. So turn off your radio. Turn off the air conditioning so that it doesn't have to, you don't hear those things clicking off and on. So don't panic that's normal. And all those chimes and bells are normal as well. So now it's going to have me turn the key off and hit OK. And just like that the vehicle is tuned and ready to go.

And then of course last but not least, you'll want to start it up. And then it's ready for you to go and enjoy.

Freddy: The GTXs, that's crazy cool stuff that this thing does. Tell us now about the gauges too. You said this is obviously designed to be left in car more than the other units have been and this is probably the reason.

Joni: Correct. You can set your gauge layout basically for anything that you want. This is what's really nice about the gauge portion of this is you can basically have as many as you want or you can slide between screens and it automatically changes exactly what it is that you can see or you just push and hold and it'll actually give you a layout option with all of those there as well.

Freddy: And basically anything that you can data log there's a gauge for it as well.

Joni: Correct.

Freddy: Excellent.

All right Joni, I want to thank you for coming out and helping out with the install.

Joni: Thanks for having me.

Freddy: No problem. I was super surprised with how easy it was to install this GTX tuner. If you want to learn more about this GTX or other Bully Dog products, visit CJPonyParts.com.
