Are you looking for the most badass tunes available for your
Powervision? Here you are! These tunes are for customers that already
have the Powervision. We are highly experienced in tuning the X3 models and
that will show. Our tunes are also easily labeled and will show horsepower
numbers with supporting mods such as exhaust and clutching. These tunes modify
all the necessary maps to create big horsepower, while still maintaining a
reliable and safe X3. We need you to send your PV_INFO file to us
before we can send the tunes. For more information on how to get this, see the
below description, or this VIDEO.
tunes are all for the 2018-19 X3 with the factory fuel pump and factory
fuel injectors, or the 2017 X3 with the 2018 fuel pump and factory fuel
shown and listed are for 2018-19 base power (139 RWHP). 2017 base
power was 126 RWHP.
2018-19 Maverick X3 is a great machine with good power from the factory,
but why stop there? This 3 cylinder turbocharged motor has so much
more potential! After many hours testing on the dyno and even more
testing in the real world, we have what we believe to be the best tunes on
the market for the 2018 X3, or 2017 models with the upgraded fuel pump.
We modify many parameters and spent a TON of time fixing a few
issues we saw from the factory when cranking up the boost. Read
below for more tune details.
horsepower and torque gains depending on the level of tune desired, and
just dyno tested! We are avid riders and like the factory, a ton of the
testing is done in the field to make sure you are getting 110%. With
data logging capabilities you can't get any better testing than real
world. Often times we can make significant changes to further
increase power, drivability, and feel of the machine that can never be
done on the dyno.

calculations set correctly to ensure the most performance at all times
tables modified to gain low end punch and safe yet powerful air/fuel
rid of the lean punch! The factory runs these things stupid lean
when getting on boost and we fix that.

Level 1 tune is designed for a completely stock 2018 X3 on 91 octane or
better. This tune runs an average of 16-16.5 PSI of boost and is a
very safe tune to run on even 91 oxy/ethanol fuel. Gains are right
around 13-15 HP to the wheels. We found many competitors only offer
a max pump gas tune and that simply does not work as well without having a
good 91 non ethanol or 93 octane fuel. If you run into this, your
safety circuits will pull timing based on DET and can even go into a
partial limp mode dropping you down to below stock boost levels. This is a
great tune to have loaded on the tuner for such event that you get bad
fuel.. it still rips, but won't push things as much. This tune absolutely
tears on 16 PSI, and just keeps pulling all day long. It works well
with a 100% factory machine or with a slip-on exhaust, cat delete, full
exhaust, and/or an intake kit. Your wastegate should be turned in 3
turns (shorter) with this tune with a crack pressure of 6-7 PSI.
Level 2 tune is again designed for 91-93 octane and is a good mid level
tune that will require at least a cat delete. We would however
recommend a full exhaust for best horsepower gains and sustained power.
This tune will run around 16-17 PSI boost on average and gains 20 hp
to the wheels. We also HIGHLY recommend our high flow intake kit for
best power gains. Our clutch weights are also highly recommended. Your
wastegate should be turned in 3 turns (shorter) with this tune with a
crack pressure of 6-7 PSI.
Level 3 tune puts the hammer down on some good 91-93 octane. We
would recommend non ethanol 91, or any 93 octane. If you can't get
one of those, you can mix a half gallon of race fuel, or a half can of VP
Octanium. This tune simply rips on pump gas, coming in at nearly 163
RWHP on our dyno! It will normally run around 17-17.5 PSI of boost.
This is a big 23-25 RWHP gain over factory. This tune requires
a full exhaust system and our high flow intake kit. Clutching is
highly recommended. Your wastegate should be turned in 3 turns
(shorter) with this tune with a crack pressure of 6-7 PSI.
4 adds a bit of race fuel to the mix! This tune is designed for
95-100 octane fuel. If you have 95 octane fuel where you live,
great. If not, you can mix in some race fuel 50/50 and easily run
this tune. We'd recommend VP MS109 or similar fuel as it's unleaded
and will be easier on your O2 sensor, but 110 leaded will work great.
Any fuel 109-110 octane or higher will be sufficient. This
tune runs around 18-18.5 PSI and produce 175 RWHP and is extremely fast.
Your wastegate should be turned in 4-5 turns (shorter) with this tune with
a crack pressure of 8-9 PSI.
4AV is the Level 4 tune (same specs) but designed to run 100 LL AV gas
found at your local airport. This fuel has a different specific
gravity with the oxygenation and other characteristics. Running a
tune not meant for this fuel can make it act lean and therefor will not
get the full power and potential from the fuel. This tune modifies
fuel tables to be able to run 100 LL AV gas and reap all the benefits.
This tune runs around 18-18.5 PSI and produce 175 RWHP and is extremely
fast. Your wastegate should be turned in 4-5 turns (shorter) with
this tune with a crack pressure of 8-9 PSI.
5 Kill mode is here! This tune is developed for 110 Leaded, or MS109
fuel (or better). This tune is an absolute riot and will leave
others in the dust. We throw down a huge 185-190 RWHP with this tune
at 19-20 PSI of boost, with a wicked timing curve for the big octane fuel.
This one will throw you back in the seat as soon as you get on the
throttle, and keep pulling for days! Hands down, this is the highest
horsepower tune possible on the factory turbo/waste gate & factory
injectors. This tune requires an exhaust system, intake system,
clutching & the wastegate turned in (shorter) so only 7-8 turns with a
crack pressure of 10-12 PSI.
6 Kill mode squared is running on corn! This E85 tune packs as much
if not more punch than the level 5 tune but must be used with our
big injectors. This tune is an absolute riot and will leave
others in the dust. We throw down a huge 185-190 RWHP with this tune
at 19-20 PSI of boost, with a wicked timing curve for the cool burning
E85. This one will throw you back in the seat as soon as you get on
the throttle, and keep pulling for days! Hands down, this is the
highest horsepower tune possible on the factory turbo/waste gate.
This tune requires an exhaust system, intake system, clutching &
the wastegate turned in (shorter) so only 7-8 turns with a crack pressure
of 10-12 PSI.
our gas tunes are available on our large injectors, so there is no need to
switch. The only reason to go big injector is if you plan on running
E85. If you don't plan on running E85, just stick with the factory
boost levels are listed as reference only. Altitude, temperature, charge
temps, intercooler temps and many other conditions play into a factor of
final boost output. AA tunes do a better job of making sure you reach
these levels as the factory tunes are overly safe.
ready to hang on, your X3 is about to transform!

good with computers? No problem. Simply send us your Powervision and we'll
install the tunes for $20 which includes the shipping back to you.
- To get
your PV_INFO number simply plug your tuner into your computer (No software
is needed and this will work on an Mac or Windows computer) using the
supplied mini USB cord. Wait for the POWERVISION device to pop up as a
drive. Once it pops up, open the folder for this device. Inside the
folder for the POWERVISION you will see a PV_INFO file which will need to
be attached into an e-mail and sent to [email protected]
download the tunes and find where they are located(most likely the
DOWNLOADS folder). Copy the tune files by highlighting them and plug
your Powevision into your computer using the supplied mini USB cable. Wait
for the POWERVISION to connect and open the POWERVISION drive. Then simply
copy the downloaded AA tunes into the folder with the rest of your
supplied dynojet tunes. Most downloaded files will go into your DOWNLOADS
are password protected so you will not be able to open or view them in the
C3 tuning software**. This keeps our tunes protected from copying,
and gives us a good reason to keep putting in the time to make the best
tunes out there!
