What to Know Before Tuning Your Vehicle With a Programmer

Importance of Power Programmer

First, everything the Power Programmer does would need a professional human computer programmer if you didn't have the Hypertech Max Energy Spectrum Power Programmer®. The necessary work would require both computer and mechanical knowledge to be completed safely and efficiently. Attempting to do the programming yourself without the proper skills could damage your vehicle. Fortunately, the best thing about the Max Energy Spectrum Power Programmer is that it's plug-and-play, so you can install it in the OBD-II diagnostic port under the driver’s side dash easily.

Performance Gains

Second, you have to know that the gains in horsepower, torque, & fuel efficiency will be relatively modest. You won't be able to turn a family sedan into the next NASCAR champion. Gas vehicle power gains will generally be between 10-50hp, and between 15–40ft.-lbs torque. Diesel vehicles gains are usually much higher than gas applications.

Warranty Considerations

Third, it must be mentioned that adding a Max Energy Spectrum Power Programmer to your vehicle will not automatically void the warranty in most cases. However, if your vehicle suffers any kind of damage and it's determined that the damage was caused because of the Power Programmer, then that will be what possibly voids the warranty. Still, it'd be a good idea for you to check with your dealership and/or warranty provider to get straight information about installing such a Power Programmer before installing it.

Compatibility and Benefits

Fourth, the Max Energy Spectrum Power Programmer works equally well with gasoline, diesel, and flex fuel. The torque boost translates directly into towing power, particularly when it comes to diesel engines, which generally produce far more torque than their gasoline or flex-fuel counterparts.

Legal Compliance and Environmental Consideration

Fifth, depending on the application, the Max Energy Spectrum Power Programmer is 50-State legal. Hypertech includes meeting all E.O. requirements in its product development process. This guarantees that users of Hypertech products will meet certification requirements when registering, selling or needing to pass various emissions tests or Inspection and Maintenance (I&M) programs administered by state or local enforcement agencies. So, on an ongoing basis, Hypertech obtains and includes CARB E.O.s for its emissions-related products. This ensures these products are not detrimental to ambient air quality and meet requirements necessary for their legal sale and use.

Hypertech's Reputation and Experience

Lastly, Hypertech is an A+rated business with the Better Business Bureau and has nearly four (4) decades worth of experience with engines, tuners, and all of the accompanying programming and hardware involved therewith. You'd most probably like to deal with a trustworthy company, and through its record, Hypertech has proven itself trustworthy and competent as well.
