Max Energy Sport Power Programmer Delivers The Maximum Tune
Max Energy Power Tuning extracts every bit of energy possible out of every molecule of fuel giving you more miles at part-throttle and more power at wide-open throttle. In order to increase engine efficiency, horsepower and torque, our engineers first make hundreds of dyno runs to optimize the spark and air-fuel curves point by point over the entire rpm band from just off idle to wide open throttle. Next we take the vehicle with the new tune to the track and the street to verify real world performance gains. The results…maximum power, quicker acceleration, smoother shifting and better driveability.
The Max Energy Sport not only gives you the power you crave but also offers specific features for your make, model and year.

Hypertech Power Tuning
Higher compression ratio engines and engines with superchargers or turbo
chargers were designed to use only premium octane, so only one (1) Power
Tuning program for premium octane is provided. But, if your car or truck
came from the factory capable of using more economical regular octane,
then two (2) optimized tuning programs are provided: one for premium, and
the other for regular. In most cases, Hypertech’s exclusive Power Tuning
for regular octane provides excellent power gains, almost as much power as
premium octane. If you are using premium octane, and you want all-out,
maximum power, then select premium octane Power Tuning.
Automobile manufacturers limit a vehicle’s top-speed to match the speed
rating of the factory-installed tires. If you have installed tires that
have a different speed rating, the Max Energy allows you to raise or
lower the vehicle’s top-speed limiter to match the speed rating of the newly
installed tires. A tire’s speed rating for maximum safe speed under perfect
conditions is marked on its sidewall. Always obey all traffic laws when
driving and only use this feature for off-highway competition in sanctioned
0-60 Throttle Restriction
The "selectable throttle restriction" tunes the engine control systems for better
low speed performance without sacrificing driveability, but it does not disable the
torque management completely. There are many different torque management systems
active at any given time while driving. During our tuning development we altered most
of these systems in different combinations to assess the impact on performance, and
driveability. We took the best combination of those changes and combined them with
further tuning to improve the overall performance and driveability under all driving
conditions. The overall affect was so dramatic we felt that all customers would
benefit more if the changes were user selectable rather than "forced."
Some Honda and Acura vehicles have engines that are equipped with Honda¹s VTEC camshaft
technology. Under certain driving conditions, specifically higher RPMs and heavy load,
the engine controller engages additional camshaft followers which use a more aggressive
camshaft profile. This increases airflow in and out of the engine which increases power
output. The Max Energy Sport Power Programmer allows you to adjust the specific engine
speed that the VTEC camshaft profile engages to customize the power band of your engine
to match the power gains of the Max Energy Power Tuning and any additional bolt-on power
RPM “Rev” Limiter
In today’s 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 engine’s 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.
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
Hypertech’s 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 vehicle’s
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 friend’s 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. Simply connect the
Max Energy (using the provided USB cord) to your computer and go to
www.hypertech.com. Then click on the Support button to get update downloads.
You can also get the update downloads using the CD which also contains
an installation video and a printable version of the instruction manual.
