Wideband CX- Dial in Performance

508

Written by:

Nary a rider in the world, has been out riding with his chosen vehicle and thought to himself, “This vehicle is absolutely perfect and I wouldn’t change a thing about how the engine/suspension/etc performs.”

Luckily Dynojet and the rest of the aftermarket industry are here to help you build that ride. Whether it involves a different seat to feel more comfortable, better shocks or valving setup to smooth out the ride, or an increase in engine performance, many options exist to suit your exact wants and needs.

IN THE CASE OF DYNOJET WE FOCUS ON PERFORMANCE

Once you’ve installed the perfect set of hard part modifications (exhaust, intake, cams, etc.), the airflow characteristics through that engine have significantly deviated from the OEM delivered styling. The control unit responsible for telling the engine how to inject fuel or light a spark plug has not been informed of your changes leading to impaired performance. An invaluable tool employed to monitor engine performance is a Wideband O2 sensor installed in the exhaust. This fancy sniffer watches how efficiently the engine is combusting fuel which is a direct correlation to whether the mixture of Air : Fuel is either ideal, too rich, or too lean. The latter two can result in performance being left on the table.

AVAILABLE FOR SINGLE AND DUAL CHANNEL APPLICATIONS

Now available from Dynojet is this very tool – the Wideband CX – which inserts O2 feedback onto the vehicle’s databus for real-time monitoring. Installed via one plug-and-play connection, the data supplied by the Wideband CX alongside current engine running conditions provides the necessary information to maximize your vehicle’s performance.

The host of this party-for-two is the ever capable PowerVision CX device to gather and log the actual datastream as you’re out for a leisurely cruise or developing on a Dynamometer. The collected information is reviewed in the Dynojet PowerCore Software Suite showcasing a pinpoint cell tracer to indicate at what Engine RPM, Load, and Requested AFR resulted in a Pulse Width to produce an AFR at that exact time….pretty cool stuff there. If the graphs indicate the AFR is not within your desired range at that moment, simply adjust the tune in that area, save the file, reflash your ride, and give it a go! You’ll now have a definitive answer that the trusty steed you’re aboard is dialed in for your riding style, your chosen accessories, and is delivering maximum performance.

Once you have logged with the WBCX you can view your AFR (or other channels from the ECU) in the Power Core Data Center software. This graph shows AFR from the front cylinder vs RPM and pressure relative to the VE table.

Power Vision CX for CAN-AM Maverick X3

526

Written by:

The CanAm Maverick X3 has stormed onto the scenes of the ultra-competitive Sport UTV market. If sporting 24 inches of bump-eating travel isn’t enough to perk one’s interest, the 900cc turbocharged mill letting this buggy speed from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds might be just enough…

Dynojet has witnessed the growing popularity of this rig among UTV enthusiasts and spies an opportunity to deliver what many diehards might already be thinking – MORE POWAH!

At its core, the X3 is a wonderful machine and drives like a dream – but if you’ve felt a sluggish pedal, or wanted more boost at some point, or desired anything else when piloting a CanAm – then Dynojet has your needs covered with the PowerVision CX.

Now available for CanAm Maverick X3 machines, the handheld PVCX flash device can transform your machine into a dominant force by unlocking the true potential within the BRP UTV. The PVCX connects to the X3 via the diagnostic port plug-in and requires no tapping or cutting of other wires. Following the icons on the weather resistant and easy to read (even in direct sunlight) screen, the device can deliver a tune and then be removed from the connector for that appealing stealthy mode. Or, since it functions as a built-in monitor to view and also log many operational conditions, keep the PVCX mounted to your dash providing easy glances at boost levels, throttle positions, and more.

Dynojet has spent countless hours on the Dyno and in the field to know that this is one hard pulling, rubber shredding, sand slinging monster. We’ve developed tunes that maximize the power and torque of the already potent engine, and added more rev range in each gear. Can your X3 achieve a higher top speed by utilizing the PVCX? You bet it will; as our tunes bump up the speed limiters in each gear. If you’re in the mood for custom tuning, simply launch our free-for-download PowerCore software Suite available –HERE.– The powerful C3 tuning application provides an easy to use interface which exposes each table you might wish to alter to suit any range of modifications you desire. Want to alter when the cooling fan turns on or how aggressively the throttle pedal actuates the throttle bodies? Go right ahead! Those tunable values are viewable and adjustable in the software.


We can’t leave the older brother V-Twin Maverick Turbo out of the party, so YES we have developed a PVCX for that machine as well. Users can interface with the Software to custom tune any field desired just the same as the X3, while the module also plugs into the diagnostic port for easy connectivity.
