Previous Next

August, 2018

EPHRATA, PA… Garden Spot Frame and Alignment Services, Inc., located at 108 Garden Spot Rd. in Ephrata, Pennsylvania has been a distributor for Bully Dog engine tuners for the past year. The company is so impressed with the performance of Bully dog that they have even installed them in their own wreckers. 

Customers love the extra power they get from Bully Dog as well as the improved fuel economy. Most trucks in a line haul application see fuel economy improvements of 3/10 to 5/10 mpg for each 1/10 of a mpg improvement the estimated fuel savings is approximately $1,000 per year. Each engine experiences different benefits with improved fuel economy and a better fuel burn. Bully Dog also provides longer DPF regen intervals and helps prolong the life of the DPF as well. An extra benefit from Bully Dog is analysis of engine fault codes, allowing the driver the option to keep on trucking or seek a service facility. The unit is easily installed and removed. Bully Dog is engine specific and is available for CAT, Cummins, Detroit and Paccar engines. The ECM tuner costs $999 and the GT tuner, which includes a driving coach is $1,899. Bully Dog is also EPA compliant.

The technicians at Garden Spot recommend a basic engine check to be sure the engine is operating properly. They will then provide an ECM print out as a baseline to check the Bully Dog’s performance. Bully Dog comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. In their first year as a Bully Dog distributor, Garden Spot Frame and Alignment has installed 25 Bully Dog units with no returns. Bully Dog is seeking additional distributors in select areas.
