Automobile manufacturers limit a vehicleâ€™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 2.0 allows you to raise or lower the
vehicleâ€™s top-speed limiter to match the speed rating of the
newly installed tires. A tireâ€™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
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 2.0 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.
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
isnâ€™t as noticeable. The V4/V8 mode can also be disabled
completely as well.
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."
In todayâ€™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 engineâ€™s
rpm range with the Max Energy 2.0 Power Programmer, your
engine has more power available after gear changes. By
adjusting the maximum rpm to keep the engine in the â€œsweet
spotâ€ of its power curve, you can increase the average
horsepower that accelerates the vehicle.
The Max Energy 2.0 allows you to adjust the â€œon/offâ€
temperatures of your vehicleâ€™s 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.
If you get a â€œcheck engineâ€ light or â€œservice neededâ€
message, the Max Energy 2.0 will allow you to read the code
and gives you the ability to clear the code and turn the
â€œcheck engineâ€ light off. You can then make the necessary
repairs to prevent the light from coming back on.
Hypertechâ€™s Max Energy 2.0 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 vehicleâ€™s computer back to the
factory programming. Once you have the vehicle back from the
dealership, reinstall the Max Energy 2.0 Power Programming
as before. The Max Energy 2.0 can only be used on one (1)
vehicle at a time, so if you sell your vehicle or want to
use it on a friendâ€™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 2.0 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 2.0 Power Programmer was
manufactured, it is possible that you will see a â€œCal not
foundâ€ message on the Max Energy 2.0 screen. If this occurs,
you can simply update your Max Energy 2.0 with the correct
new calibration via the internet. Simply connect the Max
Energy 2.0 (using the provided USB cord) to your computer
and go towww.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.
