X3 Turbo R what a beast! But we are here to make it better faster meaner. 100+ miles of dyno testing and just finished up field testing for drive-ability our Can-Am tunes are going to be tearing up the competition once again. Our pump gas tunes have been tested at both sea level and altitude and have proven to be reliable and fast.
Putting down 148 stock wheel HP is an impressive number. I have seen lower stock wheel HP numbers out there but one thing to remember is that the X3 will not make power to its potential until it has some hours and miles on it. The machine our baseline numbers were ran on had over 100 miles and 5hrs of drive time. A brand new machine with no miles may run lets say 136HP but that's not a realistic power number when the same machine will run 148 after it has had enough time on it.
The big power increase from the 2017 to 2018 does come in part to it's higher stock boost levels. A 2018 machine that is broke in and ready to be driven hard will run an average of 14 pounds of boost, up from the 12 pound average of the 2017. So the HP gains from a 2018 compared to a 2017 are not as big but we are already starting off making a lot more power.
Tuning stages 1-3int are meant to be used with a good quality premium fuel with a minimum octane rating of 91 and performance at an average of 15.5 pounds of boost. You can run the stock waste gate crack pressure at 6psi or bump that up to 7psi for a harder hit off the line. Also there is no need for larger fuel injectors when running pump gas. Stages 2+ I would suggest performance clutching, KWI is the most knowledgeable with the X3.
For a full performance exhaust that removes the stock catalytic converter and has an open performance muffler we have a Stage 3. With an increase of 20.4 HP over stock this tune runs about 168 rear wheel HP. We have tested this with the Treal Performance 3 inch exhaust systems.
Now for the best power on pump gas and my favorite our Stage 3int tune setup to be used with PwrTune X3 Velocity Intake System. At well over 170 rear wheel HP these are numbers we didn't see with the 2017 X3 until you started running high boost and high octane race fuel. It was easy with the 2018 Stage 3int tune to get a HP number over 177 doing a "hero run" on a cooled down car, the 173.7 rear wheel HP number you see on the dyno graph is representative of no BS on an X3 that is up to full temp and had been run over and over.
New e85 tuning now available, includes larger fuel injectors. After months of tuning and testing our e85 tunes are finally available. These tuning stages require larger fuel injectors which are included (genuine Bosch OEM injectors) with hardware. Gas tuning stages with these injectors are in development now. I have also included an ECO 15psi performance tune for switch on the fly performance with 18psi in Sport Mode. Our e85 tuning reflects performance when running 85% ethanol pump e85. Check your local stations for availability, if in doubt of your fuels ethanol content check with your local fuel supplier or purchase a testing unit.
HOW TO ORDER
Step 1, select your tuning stage based on the performance modifications you have made for exhaust and intake, and the fuel you intend to run
Step 2, choose the correct model/year where applicable
Step 3, select your options for RPM limit, fan temp, etc.
Step 4, send your ECU to PWRTUNE. Note in box it was ordered from Treal Performance along with Your name and a copy of your purchase order.
2439 NE 282nd Ave
Camas, WA 98607
Note: If you are purchasing a new ECU for a CanAm vehicle you will still need to send in your original ECU to us so that it can be read and "cloned" into the new ECU. UPS and USPS is preferred, please do not send "FedEx direct signature required"
Step 5, once we receive your ECU into the shop we can make the modifications necessary and sent the ECU back out the next business day. Typically same day service is very hard to promise, and there are occasions were we are not at the shop for a day or two (in this case you would be notified after you order whether there is an upcoming day that our shop would be closed).
UPGRADING YOUR TUNE TO A HIGHER LEVEL
Do you already have a pwrTune in your X3 and want to move up to a higher power level? You never pay the full price for a new tune on the same machine. If you want to move up for example to a stage 3 from a stage 1 you would simply pay the cost difference in the tuning stage, which in that case would be $100. The minimum charge for a tune swap whether it is an upgrade or downgrade is $50. Sorry we are not doing free shipping on tune upgrades. Give us a call or send an email to discuss.
FREE WARRANTY/RECALL FLASHBACK PROTECTION
If you have a problem in the future, clutch blows up, EPS stops working, and you gotta take it in for warranty work. Or a factory recall comes up and you need to take your machine in?? No worries, we've got you covered with Free Warranty/Recall Flashback Protection. What does this mean? Basically if you have an issue and need your stock ECU back to stock we will flash it back to stock for you no charge. How? When you send in your ECU first we will read your stock flash and save the information under your name. If you need it "back to stock" in the future you can send your ECU back, we will put your stock flash right back on your original ECU. If the dealer needs to connect to your ECU it will be yours, and stock, and never looks like it had been touched! Matching serial numbers, matching everything. And, we will even send it back free of charge Priority Shipping within 24 hours of receiving it. After the work is done, send it back to us (again) and free of charge we will flash it back to a pwrTune full performance tune and send it back to you. This does only apply to your first instance (one Recall and/or one Warranty Issue), after one time the fee will be $20 each flash and you'd have to pay for shipping.
