Description:

Turn the highway into your personal raceway – with a Hypertech Max Energy Programmer. It unlocks every ounce of power in your ride to deliver quicker acceleration, smoother shifting and better drivability.

Depending on your application, you have the choice of three different programmers: the Max Energy which can be used with regular or premium fuel (as your vehicle permits) and is custom-tuned for your specific year, make, model and engine to provide gains in horsepower torque and MPG; the Max Energy 2.0 which is compatible with both gas and diesel powered vehicles and specially calibrated to work with cold air intakes in addition to allowing for larger wheels/tires or modified ring and pinion gear sets; and the Max Energy Sport which is tuned for sport compact vehicles to increase MPGs at light throttle and power at open throttle, similar to what you can expect from a custom dyno tune only it takes minutes and costs much less.

The Hypertech Max Energy Tuners can also clear diagnostic trouble codes and updates simply with an internet connection All Hypertech Programmers are backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

Notes:
  • Tuners are a unique electronic device and, therefore, have a unique return process. This process necessitates physical inspection of the unit before a refund can be issued. Why? Because once a tuner is purchased and paired with a vehicle, it can only be used on that specific vehicle. This is called “vin-locking,” and prevents multiple uses of the product on different vehicles without license from the manufacturer. When returning a tuner, the tuner must first program the vehicle back to stock-mode so that it’s no longer locked to that specific vehicle. At this point, the vehicle loses the performance tune. If the tuner is returned while the vehicle still has the tune programmed to it, it will fail inspection as it cannot program another vehicle and is not in resell condition. The return will then be rejected with no return credit issued.

  • Flex Fuel Vehicles: Fueling with E85 isn’t recommended in conjunction with your Hypertech unit. Burning E85 reduces efficiency and power compared to using gas, which nullifies the effect of Hypertech’s programming.

Very poor experience

AutoAnything is not to blame here. My complaint is with Hypertech! When they say 'May need reprogramming' it means your programmer will likely not work until you do so! This requires a download from Hypertech's website, which also does not work! The anti-virus on 4 different computers would not allow the download needed for this! I had to return the unit to Hypertech for reprogramming. I have spent a lot of time dealing with this situation, and it's totally unacceptable!

Great California product

Helps if you want to change top speed,fan initiation temperature points, automatic trans shift points and shift hardness, rev limiter, tune for better performance, or eco, you can honestly feel the difference, tire size and axle ratio can be swapped and the tuner will keep it running right, does not help for cold air intake as far as I know priced a bit high but good overall quality and performance get it make sure you have Windows u will need to update your model

It works, a lot better than it look.

I had a hard time downloading, until I called the tech support, the instructions was simple and worked. I loaded stage 3 setting the mpg increased 15-19 city and 15-24 hwy after it warm-up. I noticed the new life in all around performance immediately.

Good Product

I had to update the programmer via the internet which took some time because I did not have a normal PC computer with a CD drive. CD update software does not work on Macbook. Other than that small delay, good product.

Installed this in my 2006 Ford Expedition. I set it for 87 octane fuel. It really woke up the engine performance and I am seeing 2mpg better in town and 3 to 4 better on the highway.

Noticeable Difference 5.4L V8 2010 F150

Goal: Get a little more performance and have a better driving experience. Results: Truck has a noticeable performance boost and is in fact a better driving experience. Likes: Ability to adjust the shift points, shift firmness, get a little more power, calibrate upgraded tire size (33's) to speedometer and it was simple to install. Dislikes: Required an online update before I could program my truck and I had to look up the optimal settings.

2013 ford f150 ecoboost

Didn't have much on it that I could change, only thing I could change was tire or gear and what octane I'm using. Haven't noticed any better fuel mileage.

The Pain Box Of hidden weird POWER...lol.. SO/SO

just having the two settings makes it very simple to work with one being the 85 octane and the other being the 91 octane gas. the ability to cool engine down faster is cool, distance and or speed calculation due to bigger tires rims ect the gas millage hasn't been here for me at all yet 1 mile more city/WHY that's it. pretty week on that as well as the other more intense locks that other programmers' can provide that this starter program sucks att. over all a sold C+

No real fuel savings

I have a 2011 f150 with 5.0 engine. I had really hoped the better mpg claims were true but not so much. I mainly bought this because I wanted better mpg after my level kit and new tires knocked it down almost 2 mpg. After about three weeks of driving and two tanks of gas its basically the same, no noticeable difference. I will say the throttle response seems a little better and I like all the extra features like adjusting top speed limiter. But if you are buying it for better mpg prob won't get.

No Frill Tuner - Works!

2006 F150 4x4. I purchased for gas milage boost and tire size change. Follow instructions and it is straight forward. You will need to download latest updates from the web before you start. I used the standard 87 tune. After running about 3 tanks of gas post tuning I have found no appreciable difference in gas milage - that was a disappointment. However, shift points are much smoother and truck runs much better - that was great.
