Engine Tuning For Maximum Power & Performance
The Max Energy 2.0 Power Programmer delivers
more power-per-dollar than any other bolt-on on the market
today. Plus, it installs in less than 15 minutes without using
tools or getting your hands dirty. Our award-winning Power
Tuning adds maximum horsepower, torque, and performance for
any kind of driving for vehicles using regular, premium, E85,
as well as diesel fuel. The Max Energy 2.0 also has a larger
backlit LCD screen for quick and easy setup and user-friendly
navigation for simple installation, tuning, and feature options.
Most Powerful Tuning Available For Towing
Hypertech's Power Tuning is the only
tuning on the market that allows you to use the highest power
level for towing while maintaining safe EGTs. This means no
worries about damaging your engine or transmission when towing
up to the maximum weight rating specified by the vehicle's manufacturer. Hypertech develops and tests all Power Tuning
under real-world conditions using maximum load and steep grades
to ensure dependability.
Certified 50-State Legal
Hypertech offers an emissions certified version
of the Max Energy 2.0 that is legal in all 50 states, including
California. Only applications that have been emissions certified
for sale in California are available in this version. In addition,
there is NO DIFFERENCE IN POWER, PERFORMANCE, OR FEATURE OPTIONS
for the same vehicles offered in the non-certified version.
If you’ve installed tires that are larger
or smaller than original equipment tires, or if you have installed
a ring and pinion gear set with a different rear gear ratio,
the Max Energy 2.0 allows you to re-program for correct speedometer
and odometer readings, as well as correct part-throttle shifting.
The vehicle's computer calculates your vehicle's speed based on the diameter of the stock tires. If you’ve
installed taller or shorter tires, or changed the rear gear
ratio, the vehicle's computer doesn't know how
fast your vehicle is going. As a result, the automatic transmission
may not shift correctly and the speedometer readings will
not be accurate (as required by law).
Larger than stock tires often times will have
a different tire pressure than smaller stock tires. Adjust
the TPMS warning threshold when larger than stock tires are
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 2.0 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
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
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.
Management Systems "V4/V8 mode"
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 isn'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
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 2.0 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.
Fan “On/Off" Temperatures
The Max Energy 2.0 allows you to adjust the
“on/off" temperatures of your vehicle'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
& Clear Diagnostic Trouble Codes(DTCs)
If you get a “check engine" light
or “service needed" 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 “check engine"
light off. You can then make the necessary repairs to prevent
the light from coming back on.
To Stock Or Change Option Settings
Hypertech'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 vehicle'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 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 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 “Cal
not found" 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 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.
