2017 X3 ECU Programming -18 Fuel Pump Upgrade


Can Am has given us a great package loaded with potential for big horsepower.  Our ECU tunes are developed in our state of the art dyno room on a Dynojet 250ix, then field tested on the trails and in the dunes of California, Idaho and Oklahoma for driveability and long term durability.  We have over 2000 dyno runs, street testing, desert testing and high altitude testing we are confident our tunes are the best and most thorough tested – nobody in the industry tests the way we do!  The X3 with an EVP Program is VERY impressive and performs unlike any SXS we have ever tested before.

For 2018, Can Am uses a different fuel pump housing which allows us to make more power than the 17 tunes.  The EVP 17-18 X3 ECU Tunes are VERY potent and have excellent driveability.  Many hours have been spent on the dyno and in the field to make these tunes the best and most powerful on the market.  Evolution Powersports works with top racers in the industry such Marc Burnette, Dustin Jones, Kyle Chaney, Tim Farr, Lonestar Racing and others.  No one else has our tuning pedigree!

There are two options for programming:

  • Send your ECU to 2006 68th Street Suite D Somerset, WI 54025 – we will flash your ECU via the ECU connectors – the ECU does not need to be opened! We also include a free flash back to stock service for those who need to bring the vehicle in for service to preserve their warranty.  Just send your ecu back to us and we will flash it back to stock.  When the car is back in your hands, we will flash the tune back into it.
  • Purchase Maptuner X: Maptuner X is a consumer hand held ECU tuning device similar to many diesel programmers on the market except with more capability. With it, you can program your own ECU via the touch screen interface and included cabling.  The cable plugs into the OEM diagnostic port.    With Maptuner X, you can install the same proven EVP programs.  Not only that, Maptuner X has live datalogging capability (optional).  It is also compatible with most Polaris, BRP and Yamaha vehicles meaning you only need one device to tune many vehicles! (additional tunes must be purchased).  You can return your vehicle back to stock at any time!  Additional tunes can be purchased at special pricing  for the same VIN.
