Tune Description:

NEW – Factory ECU integrated 2 Step Launch Control Option!

Evolution Powersports has developed an industry’s first Integrated Launch Control (ILC) for the 2017-2019 Maverick X3 utilizing the OEM ECU (Coming soon for the 2020).  For those who are unfamiliar with launch control – the purpose is to allow the engine to build a substantial amount of boost pressure from a standstill without engaging the belt.  In racing situations, this provides an incredible advantage over vehicles not equipped with this feature.  Generally, it provides about a 1-2 car length lead from the holeshot vs a non-launch equipped vehicle. This upgrade has been in development and tested for over 2 years, and we are proud to introduce it to the public.   

This product is only available for EVP tunes and is not compatible with any other tuning companies ECU flashes. ILC tunes combined with EVP Shift-Tek clutch kits will dominate this fall! Shift-Tek is EVP’s advanced clutching packages with weights, custom springs helix’s.

“R” designation = the turbo wastegate crack pressure must be adjusted for higher boost (see our video on how to do this here)
“W” designation = a replacement wastegate actuator is included with the tune|
“i” designation = big injector tune and includes flow matched injectors
“X” designation = EXTREME power and is the maximum that can be achieved with the stock turbocharger

2017 X3 ECU Programming – 2018 Specs with Fuel Pump –  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.

Starting in 2018, Can Am began using a different fuel pump housing which allows us to make more power than the 17 tunes.  The 17->18 spec programs are all VERY potent and have excellent driveability. 

Tune Features:

  • Revised intercooler fan settings – makes the OEM intercooler far more effective!
  • Left foot braking enabled for 2 foot operation
  • Improved boost response / low to midrange power improvements
  • Launch button for drag racing available – Our on/off switch replaces the OEM override switch which allows Launch Start from a standstill and prevents “low gear” mode.  This allows operation of the gas pedal and brake pedal at the same time from a standstill to launch the car HARD!
  • Speed limits raised / TQ limits removed in Low & High Gear
  • Low & High Gear rev limit increased from 8300 to 9000 RPMS
  • V-Max Raised
  • Improved throttle response in all modes (E-Gas Settings Improved) – Linear throttle rather than the lazy pedal the factory has programmed
  • Fans set to activate at 165 degrees
  • Race Start – No need to press the brake to start vehicle
  • Fueling is corrected for the various stages so no fuel controllers are needed
