BullyDog or DiabloSport for WK2 5.7 export
 
Hi All,
I'd like to hear your thoughts on the BullyDog Hemi Plus GT tuner. I have emailed diablo as well as bullydog in regards to support for the Jeep grand Cherokee WK2 2011 5.7 hemi and bullydog said they do support it. diablo said they dont. But Ive heard the DS trinity has worked with aussie / export wk2's even though they dont support it.

So has anyone compared the 2? is there anything the DS tuner does that the bullybog doesnt?

Cheers,
Speed_Racer

I'm also keen to get a tuner for my export hemi GC. Is your problem that the export model is different and not supported, or just that the 2011 model is not supported?

Yeah the problem is the export models have a different ECU (US Calibration ID) on them. So basically our VIN numbers are different which have a different tune to the states.. And Diablo said they wont support (or crack the encryption) on the export models.. to smaller market perhaps..

However I have heard of people running diablo tuners but they took the chance and it worked, knowing my luck i would take the chance and find its different.

BullyDog said they support it but not sure if BullyDog take custom tunes.

I wonder if Sean from hemi fever tuning would be able to do something with the diablo for the export model. Reading through these threads it sounds like if anyone could, it would be him. Plus I would trust him based on other member testimonials.

I've been in touch with him and were trying to work it out, but Diablo have said no support,
The other option is $895 for a USA Ecu

- ^^^ - I'm not sure - but I think Sean can do tunes with SCT as well. Maybe SCT provides support for Aussie exports ... ?

Yeah SCT offer tunes for AUST ford falcon's through herrod motorsport, there tuner in the states are about $300 but over here they are $1000.. (i think they may of dropped to about 800) So if they would consider selling a unit from the US at a US price then it would be worthwhile providing they support WK2 5.7's..

For what it's worth, I am willing to buy off Sean also if he can come up with something. Very keen to unleash the beast within this hemi...
