Do you think your side-by-side is powerful already? Why don’t you try taking the limits off your machine a turbo tuner and seeing what your machine is capable of?
Imagine this: you and your buddies are just pulling your Polaris RZR or a Can-am Maverick X3 off your trailers at your friend’s land. You have all have your own rides and lately you’ve been starting to add some accessories. Let’s say you challenge your friends to some friendly competition and bet who will win…
Every side-by-side sold today comes with manufacturer limits imposed on them. These limits mean you can’t accelerate as quickly or reach the maximum speed that the vehicle is capable of.
A tuner allows you to change those limits or removes them completely. In some instances, you can also tweak the spark firing times and fuel injection to push out every bit of horsepower can from your stock engine.
There are several designs and brands of tuners for boosting your UTV turbo, the designs change based on multiple stages of turning and also depending on your make and model of side by side. That means you have options. Stage 1 moves or removes some of the limiters on throttle and speed. Stage 2 further moves the same limiters and tweaks the engine. On the few vehicles that have it, stage 3 maximizes machine performance and speed for expert drivers.
For example: for your RZR Turbo tune alone, you could see up to a 17 mph increase in top speed, a 24-horsepower increase, and a 9 ft. lb. torque increase! That’s crazy!
More power is beneficial because it can allow the engine to not work as hard, which in turn will make the engine also last longer! Sand or mud riding will really benefit from increased horsepower and torque. Both mud and sand put an increased load on your engine because it takes more effort to turn your tires in those conditions. Or if you run paddle tires or aggressive mud tires in their respective conditions even the tires will rob your engine of power. This is why we suggest tuning your turbo for your UTV.
