Looking to get a plug and play solution for more horsepower on your Can-Am Maverick X3 without messing with your warranty? New from VR Tuned is this performance Tuning Box kit for the 3 cylinder turbocharged engine. Tuning box kits have been around for years and are used in high performance cars such as Porsche, BMW, Audi, Mercedes, and even Ferrari. The Tuning Box kit is specifically designed for turbocharged or supercharged vehicles to maximize performance by altering boost and timing. The kit was designed incooperation between VR Tuned and a German manufacture who specializes in developing these kits. The principle of the tuning box kit is to plug in between the vehicles sensor and ECU harness to change the signal being sent. The multi-channel tuning box has been mapped to alter the vehicles boost pressure, manifold pressure, and camshaft sensor signals instead of what the ECU is sending.
Since the Tuning Box uses factory Bosch connectors, it can be easily installed or removed. Nothing is altered on the ECU which leaves your warranty fully intact. Additional modifications such as an exhaust system, header pipe, blow off valve, charge tubes will easily adjust. The tuning box does feature an adjustable dial to increase the signal to gain more power for those running higher octane such as 100 unleaded. The Tuning Box will give you an increase of 10-15% in power over stock.
As tested on our Mustang Dyno using 91 octane and in 100F temperatures, our 2017 Can-Am X3 had a baseline of 104 rear wheel horsepower and 90 ft/lbs of torque. Mustang Dynamometer read lower than most but give accurate real world horsepower numbers. Typical drivetrain loss on the CVT clutch vehicles is about 25-30%. With the tuning box plugged in, we had a peak gain of 119rwhp and 93ft/lbs of torque. The maximum horsepower gain was near the higher MPH with nearly 20rwhp over stock. Torque stayed at a consistent gain of 11ft/lbs from 30mph and on.
Please see the attached dyno sheet of the Tuning Box vs stock as well as vs a competitors ECU flash.
This does work on the 18-19 172HP Can-Am Maverick X3 Turbo or 2017 with upgrade power kit.
