Specifically, it focuses on tuning the fuel and timing curve of the engine control unit (ECU), allowing your Can-Am to operate at peak performance for any terrain you may encounter. Additionally, it can be installed discreetly underneath your ride and can be effortlessly uninstalled by simply unplugging it from your ATV.

How Does The Power Vision 4 Work?
