2020 Maverick X3 195 HP TURBO RR Maptuner X Programmer
Maptuner X is a consumer hand held ECU flashing device similar to many diesel programmers on the market except with more capability. With it, you can easily flash your vehicle via the app driven, 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, DTC Reading/Reset and many other features. With a Plug n Play AFR module, you can monitor and log air fuel ratios in real time! It is also compatible with most Polaris, BRP and Yamaha vehicles meaning you only need one device to tune many vehicles! (additional vehicle tunes must be purchased). You can return your vehicle back to stock at any time!
About the 2020 Can Am X3 RR Tuning R&D: This vehicle is so good that it deserved an enhanced dyno testing and field testing regimen to make sure our tuning is the best available anywhere. Tuning this beast started in Sturgis, SD in early August 2019 for some high altitude calibrations and testing while simultaneously remote tuning an identical X3 RR on one of our wheel dynos in Phoenix, AZ. This allowed us to make rapid development on early tuning files. Our 2020 RR was then brought back to our facility in Wisconsin where it was joined by a second development X3 XMR RR (aka the Green Machine).
It was decided from now on all heavy tune development would be performed on our engine dyno rather than a wheel dyno. This change was made for two reasons. First, an engine dyno removes the CVT drive system from the tuning equation. The CVT will always try to keep the engine REVs at within a narrow RPM range during a power sweep whereas our engine dyno can sweep the entire operating range of the engine. Also, the engine dyno can hold RPM’s at very specific values which allows us to tune those areas, throttle openings and load levels without the “Continuously Variable Transmission” varying the load and RPM. Tuning the engine outside of the CVT allows us to deliver a more refined tune and eliminates all of the variables (tire size, clutching, strap tension, etc) which result in the incredible spectrum of dyno figures published for this vehicle. For example, the stated dyno numbers for a bone stock 2020 X3 RR among our shop and others varied by over 20 WHP! All vehicles were tested on the same manufacturer dyno. This is ridiculous. The factory rates the power of their engines at the crank and we do too.
All 2020 X3 RR Programs have the following features:
- Radiator cooling fan triggered sooner to keep coolant temperature in check on hot days and long pulls
- Intercooler fan settings revised to keep intake temps in check on hot days and long pulls
- Rev limiters raised to 9000
- Speed limiter raised to 110 MPH
- Torque limits raised
- Throttle limits revised to improve engine responsiveness
- Fueling revised for optimal safe AFR’s
- Race start – no need to press the brake to start in gear
- Left foot brake enabled – allows you to drive two footed
- Boost raised
- Wheel Dyno Tested – Engine Dyno Tested
- High Elevation Tested – Glamis / Dumont Extreme Heat Tested
EVP Integrated 2 Step launch control – see video below for explanation and operation.
Evolution Powersports has developed an industry’s first Integrated Launch Control (ILC) for the 2017-2019 Maverick X3 utilizing the OEM ECU. 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.
