    Tune for 2018 RXT 230?

    With the pricing insanity at the moment for the 300s (new or used). I just bought an '18 RXT 230. Would like to do stuff I have done before with supercharger upgrades, exhaust, yada yada. But I don't see the Riva Map-X tuner works on this. Is this correct? I only found a Race Lab tune for 240+ hp whatever that means. Is there anything else out there? Thanks

    Hi Bob, congrats on the new ski. The MaptunerX has a great tune for the 230's.

    The MaptunerX is the way to go. Reflash your ecu in minutes without having to send it anywhere.
    Upgrade tunes at any time and it costs you nothing extra.
    Optionally use the MaptunerX for diagnostics, programming keys, and data logging.
    Very easy to use! The GreenHulk Store offers MaptunerX tuning packages at discounted pricing. If you reflash the ECU I highly recommend you ugrade your impeller and wear ring as well. Riva has found this pitch to work best with the 230's with tuned ECU

    OK and that all sounds good, but I only see a single Stage 1 tune in the library. I want to put on an xx2 charger upgrade with intercooler, intake mod, injectors, RRFPR, etc. So Stage 1 tune ain't going to cut it. So am I wasting my time with the Map X?

    Start with the stage 1. As you change parts you will need to log and send that info to
    Jesus@Riva. He will adjust your tune as needed. Cam change would be a good idea.
    Those 230's are turds without it. Might also wanna do a 300 s/c conversion instead
    of the xx2. Just some thoughts.

    Have you tested the 300 cam in the 230 engine?

    Thanks. What Cam? I have installed cams before in these motors. Pretty easy. And is the 300 SC interchangeable on the 230s?

    Not at all, you'd be wasting your time with anything else. MaptunerX is completely customizable. In this case of using the XX-2 you'd actually use the Stage 3 260 8650 VT11 tune.
    You'd need the VT11 injectors
    Riva rising rate fuel pressure regulator
    and you'd need to upgrade your valve train. I recommend the supertech spring and retainer kit.
    I recommend the Fizzle F1000 intercooler.
    Also, you will want to run the 15/19R impeller.

    Hope that helps!
