Maverick X3 2 Step Launch Control Upgrade

Oct 01 2019


This is an upgrade to your existing EVP tune.  You must be in our accounting system, Maptuner, or flash inventory to be eligible for the upgrade pricing.  You also must be the original customer.  EVP will at its discretion determine upgrade eligibility. If you have Maptuner with your VIN on it, we will enable the tune on your account.  If you sent your ECU to us for programming, you must send it back for the upgrade.



Factory ECU integrated 2 Step Launch Control Upgrade Option:

For those who are unfamiliar with 2 step – the purpose of it is to allow you to build boost from a standstill without engaging the belt.  In racing situations, this gives you an incredible advantage over your buddies.  Generally, it provides about a 2 car length lead right from the holeshot vs a non-launch equipped vehicle. This product has been in the works for over 2 years, and it is finally ready for prime time.  To engage ILC, you must be below 5 MPH, step on the brake to engage and apply full throttle. This is when the magic happens – you have a rev limit at either 2300 or 2600 RPMs, retarded ignition and added fuel.  The engine starts to pop and backfire while you watch your boost gauge climb from vacuum to up to 8 lbs of boost in about 3 seconds.  As soon as you release the brake, it is like being shot out of a cannon and you launch your way to glory ahead of your buddies! (Note: Big turbos, higher elevations and hot, humid temperatures will reduce the boost you can make at a given RPM.  Higher RPM engagement and rev cut need to be used.  We offer both 2300 and 2600 Launch RPM – more options will be available in the future.

This product is only available for EVP tunes and is not compatible with any other tuning companies ECU flashes. Launch Control tunes combined with EVP Shift Tech clutch kits absolutely kick ass! Shift Tech is EVP’s advanced clutching packages with weights, custom springs & helixes.

Launch Control requires a 23-2700 RPM engagement to work correctly.  EVP has high engagement springs which can be used in conjunction with your existing clutching to get the RPMs where they need to be.
