While an AMC AMX and a late-’80s Silverado live in the garage, Dent jumps behind the wheel of this 2016 V6-equipped Mustang for daily transportation. Although the V6 cranks out enough ponies for some exhilarating mountain drives, Dent was still looking for more performance.

Hypertech’s Max Energy Spectrum

The Hypertech Max Energy Spectrum flash programmer is designed for the performance-minded individual looking to extract the most from their car or truck. This advanced programmer allows for full control of the vehicle’s ECM. This enables you to adjust a wide range of parameters that influence the vehicle’s performance. These parameters include air/fuel ratio, ignition timing, and transmission shift points. When optimized, this can result in a significant increase in horsepower, torque, and overall vehicle performance.

The Hypertech Max Energy Spectrum comes with a variety of pre-loaded performance tunes. Hypertech optimized these tunes to provide the best possible performance and are tailored to suit different driving styles and conditions. You choose from a variety of performance options such as street, tow, or race. You can also switch between tunes at any time, allowing you to easily adjust your vehicle’s performance to suit your needs.

Hypertech’s Max Energy Spectrum is extremely simple to use. Simply plug the device into your OBDII port and turn the vehicle on, but do not start the engine.

One of the most significant benefits of using the Hypertech Max Energy Spectrum Flash Tuner is the increase in horsepower and torque. With the device installed, you can expect to see an increase of up to 25 horsepower and 40 lb-ft of torque. This means your Mustang will accelerate faster, have a more responsive throttle, all with increased fuel economy.

Another key feature of the Max Energy Spectrum Flash Tuner is its ability to read and clear diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and data log engine parameters. This allows you to monitor and troubleshoot any issues that may arise with your vehicle’s performance.

The installation of the Hypertech Max Energy Spectrum Flash Tuner is simple and can be done in a matter of minutes. Additionally, the device comes with detailed instructions and all necessary hardware for installation. The programmer simply plugs into the OBD-II diagnostic port. Once the device is plugged into the diagnostic port, you will be prompted to turn on your vehicle’s ignition. From there, the device will automatically recognize your vehicle’s make, model, and year and begin the tuning process.



On The Road

“The first time driving after installing my first tune, I was amazed at the power increase,” explain Dent. “The tires chirped going into 2nd gear with only moderate throttle input! There was an obvious increase in torque and horsepower, and that was not even the most aggressive tune the Spectrum had to offer. There were two more levels above that. I’m simply amazed at how much power Ford is leaving on the table with their factory tuning.

“The car was so much more fun to drive!” Dent adds. “Giving in to the temptation to step on it with the increased horsepower and torque was negating any extra fuel savings. After some tweaking to the tunes (and my left foot), I found the sweet spot. Increased torque and hp when I step on it, and extra fuel economy when I’m cruising down the road. My combined city/highway mileage has increased to 28 mpg. That’s 1 MPG above the mileage I used to get on the highway! I’m easily getting an extra average 40-50 miles on a tank of gas.

“My car is much more fun to drive while also going further on a tank of gas. I’m enjoying the power increase and the spending decrease. It’s the best of both worlds.”

The Hypertech Max Energy Spectrum Flash Tuner is an excellent investment for any Mustang enthusiast looking to take their vehicle’s performance to the next level. It provides a high level of control over the vehicle’s performance. This allowing enthusiasts to extract the maximum potential from their 2016 V6 Ford Mustang. Whether it’s for track use, daily driving, or towing, this device is a must-have for any Mustang enthusiast.
