The Challenge

In this comprehensive guide, we’ll delve into the nuances of tuning the Caterpillar 320E L excavator to maximize its performance. When investing in a construction machine like the Caterpillar 320E L, performance is paramount. It ensures a return on investment and maintains operational productivity, making it crucial to understand how tuning can enhance this vital aspect of the machine.

The Caterpillar 320E L is renowned for its versatile size, making it suitable for a wide range of jobs. It comes equipped with a robust C6.6 ACERT diesel engine, boasting 153 horsepower on paper. However, despite this horsepower rating, the manufacturer has limited the power output through the ECU settings. This restriction means that the Caterpillar 320E L has untapped power potential that can significantly enhance its performance across various applications.

Another critical consideration is the emission system of the diesel engine. Over time, the emission system can become blocked and fail, leading to an underpowered machine that is not only inefficient but also costly to repair. Addressing these issues is crucial to ensuring that the Caterpillar 320E L operates at its peak efficiency and productivity levels.

The Solution

ECU tuning offers a comprehensive solution to these challenges. By gaining access to the ECU, we can optimize its settings to unlock the full potential of your Caterpillar 320E L. Our tuning process is designed to increase both power and torque, resulting in a more productive machine that can complete tasks more efficiently while optimizing fuel consumption.

One of the key benefits of ECU tuning is its ability to address emission system issues. Since the emission settings are located in the ECU, our tuning process can effectively optimize these settings to ensure that your Caterpillar 320E L remains reliable and efficient. In fact, our emission solution has been proven to deliver significant fuel savings, with some machines consuming 70 to 90 liters less fuel in a 10-hour period after tuning.

In conclusion, ECU tuning is a powerful tool that can significantly enhance the performance of the Caterpillar 320E L excavator. By unlocking its full potential and addressing emission system issues, ECU tuning can improve productivity, reduce operating costs, and ensure that your investment in the Caterpillar 320E L is a sound one.

Further Benefits Of Tuning The Caterpillar 320E L

Increased Power and Torque

With more power and torque, a tuned machine can handle heavier loads and perform tasks more efficiently. It allows the machine to pull or push larger implements, haul heavier loads, and complete tasks faster, resulting in increased productivity.

Years of Development

We have been tuning the Caterpillar C6.6 ACERT engine for years, and understand how they work as well as the limitation on factory hardware.
