The 2020 Can-Am Maverick x3 RR ECU Tune is the best thing you will every spend your money on!  With the vehicle coming from Can-Am producing 195HP, you can bet there is plenty more power still on the table.  VR Tuned gives you that with an extra 30 horsepower taking you to 225HP!  The new 2020 x3 RR has many upgraded parts over the previous models.  Changes to the turbo sizing, injectors, intercooler, intercooler piping, having 3bar MAP sensors, and new calibration make this Can-Am a complete new beast.  When it comes down to it, the 2020 Can-Am x3 RR has the potential to be just as fast with only a ECU Flash as a 2018-2019 car with upgraded injectors, race gas, and/or turbo upgrade.  That is saying a lot!

To create a product that takes the 2020 x3 RR to new levels, Vivid Racing's tuning team developed this ECU flash with power, driveability, and reliability in mind.  Using our Mustang Dyno here in Gilbert, Arizona, internal and external data logging tools, we were able to gain a very impressive 30 horsepower over stock.  With a worldwide clientele, we created a tune for both 91 octane and 93+ octane users.  With our 93+ octane file, your new Can-Am is a 225HP monster!

Our tuning takes into account changes to timing, fuel, boost, limiters, and much more.  Through our data logging, we were able to fine tune this x3 to perfection.  The RR stock boost pressure reaches near 21psi and tapers down to 18psi.  With our tune we are now able to hold a consistent 22.5psi through the entire power curve.  The new engine, intercooler, and turbo systems are designed to run this high of boost compared to the previous years model.  Dialing in the vehicles air fuel mixture was very important to vehicle safety while delivering power.  The car actually runs 14.7afr at wide open throttle which is extremely lean for a turbo car.  However, newer Bosch ECUs have something called "Component Protection System".  When the car sees it is at an unsafe level, it dumps fuel and can even close the throttle plate.  Tests show this happening because of extreme heat testing bringing the AFR down to around 11.5.  For us to bring more power into the vehicle, we dialed in the AFR to around 12.0-12.2 which is the sweet spot for turbo cars.  All of this while keeping the safety parameters in place to have confidence in going fast!  

Our flashing is done with our VR Tuned iFlash software using a Windows based PC tablet or laptop.  As the video below explains, connecting via the Can-Am diagnostic port allows you to flash between your stock and tuned files.  The flashing software gives you the convenience to easily flash your Can-Am and update files if necessary.  Our flashing takes roughly 3 minutes compared to the competition device which takes almost 20 mins!
