If you are using premium octane, and you want all-out, maximum power, then select premium octane Power Tuning. We recommend premium octane tuning for vehicles using E-85 fuel. The improved engine tuning will increase the part-throttle efficiency and wide-open throttle performance compared to the factory tuning. Three (3) stages of Power Tuning are available.No other tuner offers this level of power for towing. Hypertechs low EGTs, proper transmission shifting and superior tuning that doesnt require de-fueling, giving the Max Energy Power Programmer the performance advantage. If youve installed tires that are larger or smaller than original equipment tires, or if you have installed a ring and pinion gear set with a different rear gear ratio, the Max Energy allows you to re-program for correct speedometer and odometer readings, as well as correct part-throttle shifting. The vehicles computer calculates your vehicles speed based on the diameter of the stock tires. If youve installed taller or shorter tires, or changed the rear gear ratio, the vehicles computer doesnt know how fast your vehicle is going. As a result, the automatic transmission may not shift correctly and the speedometer readings will not be accurate (as required by law). Always obey all traffic laws when driving and only use this feature for off-highway competition in sanctioned events.
Increase shift firmness to maximize performance or when towing, to reduce clutch slippage and transmission oil temperatures. That means longer transmission life. However, this feature must not be used If you have installed an aftermarket shift kit. The Max Energy allows you to raise or lower the shift points in 100 RPM increments for maximum performance, quicker acceleration, and better 1/4-mile times.
With the Max Energy Power Programmer, you have the ability to customize the shift points for every gear. Optimizing each shift point can definitely improve performance. Fuel Management Systems "V4/V8 mode". For improved fuel economy, vehicle manufacturers have developed V4/V8 modes. Chrysler & Dodge vehicles use the Multi-Displacement System (MDS) and GM has the Active Fuel Management System (AFM).These systems allow the engine to turn into a fuel sipping 4-cylinder during light load conditions such as steady speed cruising. We perfected the engine efficiency in V4 mode for both regular and premium octane. These systems have major benefits in fuel economy, but with a sacrifice in drivability when in V4 mode, and during the transition to V8 mode.
The Max Energy allows you to adjust the minimum speed at which the V4 mode activates. Adjusting the minimum speed higher would prevent the V4 mode from activating while the road noise is low and V4 exhaust note is noticeable. Activating at a higher speed would allow for full benefit of the Max Energy 2.0 engine tuning in V4 and V8 mode at those higher speeds where the exhaust sound isnt as noticeable. The V4/V8 mode can also be disabled completely as well.
In todays vehicles, the onboard computer controls maximum engine rpm. The stock computer is programmed to shut down the engine when it reaches its redline.
But if you have modified your vehicle to increase its high-speed performance, more rpm means more power. When you shift gears with the stock rpm limit, the engine falls back to below the peak of its horsepower curve. When you extend the engines rpm range with the Max Energy Power Programmer, your engine has more power available after gear changes.By adjusting the maximum rpm to keep the engine in the sweet spot of its power curve, you can increase the average horsepower that accelerates the vehicle. The Max Energy allows you to adjust the on/off temperatures of your vehicles electric cooling fans to match a lower temperature thermostat, such as a Hypertech PowerStat. A low-temperature thermostat produces a cooler, denser intake charge, is less likely to detonate under heavy loads and allows the engine to make more power. Read & Clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes(DTCs). If you get a check engine light or service needed message, the Max Energy will allow you to read the code and gives you the ability to clear the code and turn the check engine light off. You can then make the necessary repairs to prevent the light from coming back on. Return To Stock Or Change Option Settings. Hypertechs Max Energy downloads and saves the stock tuning program, then uploads your customized Power Tuning program. Before taking your vehicle into a dealership for service, always return the vehicles computer back to the factory programming.
Once you have the vehicle back from the dealership, reinstall the Max Energy Power Programming as before. The Max Energy can only be used on one (1) vehicle at a time, so if you sell your vehicle or want to use it on a friends vehicle, simply return your vehicle to the stock tuning program and you may then use the programmer on another vehicle that is covered in the same part number. The Max Energy Power Programmer comes with a USB cable and a CD containing software to enable quick updates over the internet. If your vehicle has a new calibration not available when your Max Energy Power Programmer was manufactured, it is possible that you will see a Cal not found message on the Max Energy screen.
If this occurs, you can simply update your Max Energy with the correct new calibration via the internet. You can also get the update downloads using the CD which also contains an installation video and a printable version of the instruction manual.
