With a focus on reliability Bully Dog Big Rig offers their Stage 1 Turbo Charger for Caterpillar 3406B, 3406C, 3406E, C15 and C16 engines. Engineered & Manufactured with Bully Dog's renowned quality, this 400-600HP Performance Turbo features improved horsepower and fuel economy as well as lower EGTs. With a quicker spool up and better casting craftsmanship than OEM turbos — the Big Rig Stage 1 is the perfect OEM replacement and is the best turbo charger for class 8 vehicles on the road today.
The only difference between Bully Dog's Stage 1 and Stage 2 CAT Turbos is the exhaust housing. The stage 1 housing is a 1.32 AR and the stage 2 is a 1.45 AR. The larger housing on the stage 2 allows the same volume of air but it will be slower. It will run just as well as the stage 1 but with lower boost. If you have a higher horsepower rig, the larger housing of the Stage 2 will help you prevent over spinning the turbo.p
Bully Dog Big Rig Stage 1 400-600 HP Turbocharger Features
What makes a Bully Dog Turbo better?
A vitally important component to a vehicle’s overall performance, the turbo charger affects power output, fuel economy & throttle response. The turbo charger that’s running in your vehicle is a factor in its efficiency — if it’s less than the best, then its efficiency is not optimal — and that affects your experience on the road, especially during long hauls. If the throttle isn’t responding effectively, you aren’t getting that extra power when it’s needed. What’s more is you’re wasting fuel — and that’s money out of your pocket. So choosing the best turbo charger for your rig is nothing short of crucial. Bully Dog Big Rig’s Stage 1 is proven on the road, both in performance and longevity. It typically costs less than an OEM replacement — AND there’s no hassle of a CORE charge… Bully Dog isn’t toying with its Big Rig business and the Stage 1 BFT-1 proves this.
