Bully Dog Press Release – 2017 F-150 Support for Bully Dog GT Gas Tuner

June 23rd, 2017 by databot

Our fan base requested support for the 2017 Ford F-150–and Bully Dog®’s world-class engineers listened. We’re pleased to announce support on our popular GT Gas tuner for the 2017 Ford F-150 5.0L V8 and 3.5L V6! Our valued customers wanted more power from the 5.0L V8 and 3.5L V6 engines–and we delivered big time. Here’s what to expect from the GT Gas Tuner (Part Number #40417).

2017 F-150 5.0L
Heavy hauling is how most 5.0L owners task their F-150. With a best in class 3,270 lb payload and power ratings of 385 HP and 387 FT-LBS, the 5.0L F-150 is a real workhorse. Bully Dog decided to take it a step further. Our calibrators made max gains of up to 17 HP and 21 FT-LBS of torque, added about 500 RPM worth of powerband to the top end, and made noticeable increases through the midrange areas of the torque curve. This gives drivers the ability to maintain a large safety margin for towing heavy loads. With three power levels to choose from, driving coach, diagnostic tools, and the ability to adjust a variety of customizable parameters, the Bully Dog GT is the ultimate performance upgrade.

2017 F-150 3.5L
The 3.5L V6 FFV is designed to operate effectively while keeping operating costs as low as possible. Considering the 282 HP and 253 FT-LBS it produces, Bully Dog calibrators set out to prove that there’s always room for improvement. By adjusting pedal maps, completing road testing and transmission tuning we managed to produce peak gains of up to 14 HP and 16 FT-LBS. We also saw max gains of 18 HP and 18 FT-LBS under the curve. With three power levels to choose from, driving coach, diagnostic tools, and the ability to adjust a variety of parameters, the Bully Dog GT is the ultimate performance upgrade for this naturally aspirated 3.5L V6.

AEM Press Release – AEM Charge Pipe Kit Helps Honda’s Turbo 1.5L Engine Breathe More Freely

June 19th, 2017 by databot

The 2015 and 2016 Honda Civic EX-T and Touring models are powered by one of Honda’s most potent small four-cylinder engines to date. These Civic models move down the road with 174 horsepower from a tiny 1.5 liter engine. Surprisingly, there’s room for improvement. By swapping out the factory intercooler charge pipe with an AEM 26-3003C.

Officially the L15B7, the engine is manufactured with an aluminum block and a DOHC 16-valve cylinder head with water-cooled exhaust passages cast into the head. Other cylinder head features include direct Injection, Dual VTC (variable valve-timing control), and sodium-cooled exhaust valves. Internal features include cavity-shaped pistons with an optimized skirt design, lightweight steel connecting rods that are heat-forged in one piece for higher strength, and a new grinding process known as plateau honing which further lowers friction levels between pistons and cylinders.

The real key to the 1.5 L engine’s performance is the single-scroll turbocharger that produces 16.5 psi of boost. At that level the motor develops 174 horsepower @ 5500 rpm and torque of 162 lb-ft @ 1800-5500 rpm. As air is compressed, it heats up at the rate of about 10° F for every one PSI of boost. Certainly the engine’s intercooler can shed much of that heat, but typically the intercooler can also pass more air than the capacity of the stock intake tubes.

The AEM 26-3003C intercooler charge pipe kit is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube with a durable gunmetal gray powdercoated finish that is designed to replace the restrictive factory intercooler piping on 2016 – 2017 Honda Civic models with the 1.5L engine. The AEM charge pipe has been engineered to reduce turbocharged air pressure loss common with stock plastic pipes as well as dramatically increase air flow from the turbo to the intercooler.

The AEM 26-3003C intercooler charge pipe kit is a relatively inexpensive modification that you install yourself in only a couple of hours with common hand tools. The kit comes with all the necessary hardware for an OEM-type installation. Plus there’s no drilling required as OEM mounting brackets are utilized for a seamless installation.

Synapse Engineering Press Release – Ford Mustang Ecoboost BOV Kits Now Available

June 19th, 2017 by databot

Introducing the Synapse Engineering BOV kit for the 2015-2017 Ford Mustang Ecoboost. The kit is a complete bolt-on that includes all pieces required for installation. This kit is available in various 35 mm valve models. Pricing for the kit will vary depending on selected valve.  The kit is also available as a standalone kit without valve if you already have a compatible Synapse valve (Synchronic BOV V2-V3, Diverter Valve V1-V2 and R35V V1-V2). Forthcoming will be a mating part number for the cold-side pipe that gives you a full hard-pipe setup for your Ecoboost Mustang. On the horizon, we are also announcing our intent to acquire a CARB Executive Order for this kit.*

We are also developing an R55V kit for the Ecoboost Mustang that will sell in parallel to the hot-side kit. This will be a cold-side kit that will release a couple of months later and will have a higher MSRP due to the fact that it will require a full charge-pipe kit.

*The time table for the CARB EO may be from 12-24 months.

For more information on this hot side piping kit, check out Synapse.
