  • “R” designation = the turbo wastegate crack pressure must be adjusted for higher boost (see our video on how to do this here)
  • “i” designation = big injector tune and includes flow matched injectors

The OEM stock 17 Can Am X3 tune produces 11 lbs of boost.  EVP Tunes have the below boost and octane ratings.  See dyno charts in the photo gallery for horsepower ratings of each tune vs stockEach tune is tailored for the components installed on your X3.

2017 X3 ECU Programming:  The development for these tunes consisted of 2000+ dyno runs in our state of the art, climate controlled dyno room. They were then field testing on the trails, desert, dunes and high altitude for driveability and long term durability.  We endured 110+ degree California weather to ensure performance at extreme temperatures.  After the rigorous field testing routing was completed,  they were further proven and refined on the track with our sponsored driver race program. 

Evolution Powersports works with top racers in the industry such Marc Burnett, Dustin Jones, Kyle Chaney, Tim Farr, Lonestar, Sean Cook, Elliot Burns, Casey Scherer and others.  6 out of the top 10 drivers in the Lucas Oil Midwest series used EVP tunes & products to help get them to the podium.  EVP programming and products are also used by top drivers in GNCC, BITD and SCORE race series with countless podiums.  We are confident our tunes are the most powerful, refined and safest tunes on the market.  Also, EVP owns 6 development Can AM X3’s.  This allows us to do parallel development on stock turbo, consumer tunes while engineering next level products and tunes.

For those thinking about a purchasing a 2018 X3 just for the power – The 2017 EVP Stage 1 ECU Tune has more power and is faster for far less money than a 2018 trade in or even the 2018 Can Am power upgrade!  Video of 17 EVP Stage 1 X3 vs 18 X3 all stock
