I may just have to wait then. Doesnt the power commander stay in the unit at all times? Even for that price I would be interested in getting one for each of my sparks.

You might want to do your homework before you decide which way you want to go. I'm assuming Dynojet is working on their CMD for the Spark. Because they currently don't offer any Power Commander's for any SEA-DOO models. And I think most people wouldn't want just the Power Commander anyway because typically you can only adjust fuel. So here is a few things to consider if they are working on a CMD:

Price would probably be $449.00 like the rest of their watercraft CMD units.

Dynojet doesn't have any maps listed on their website so it looks like you would have to build your own. So you will probably want to purchase at least a single channel AutoTune to help you. This will cost you $279.99 so now you are up to $728.99.

The CMD unit needs to be left on your machine at all times unless you want to go back to stock. So you would probably want to pull it off the machine anytime you bring it to your dealer.

There are some more pros and cons but the above ones are the big ones for the average customer that isn't a tuner. I'm thinking the V-Tech tune is the best option for the average guy.

Either way, 10hp gains on the vtech so ur almost at $100 a hp. Think its kinda lame that u spend $600 on the tunes and $400 for the unit . It be more worth the coin if you could tune any spark but all the licenes are for one ski so its not like you could even make a couple of bucks back on it . just think unless ur racing them it just not worth the money.

Check out Dynojet's CMD Marine website below and do your research. I can't find any maps for any of their CMD Marine controllers on their website. So why would they offer a map for the Spark? So it looks like you are going to have to tune your own machine or hope someone else will share their map with you.

Don't get me wrong, I think Dynojet offers a good product. But it isn't a plug and play set-up. It is designed for a tuner.

I know for Moto and ATV apps they have an Autotune feature where the system calibrates itself. If thats the case its not nearly as daunting...

Also from Motos I know that PC's work best in conjunction with other mods, as a standalone thing you're really not getting very much except bring your AFM back towards neutral from the lean manufacturer settings. But again thats only what I know from motos...

Dynojet does offer an AutoTune that will work with their CMD but it is an accessory and not a feature. So you need to buy the CMD for $449.00 plus $279.99 for the AutoTune which comes out to $728.99. Now the AutoTune will help you build a fuel map but wont help you with timing. So again, you will need some tuning knowledge to get the full benefit or hope someone comes out with a map.

So you need to decide whether to spend $939.95-$939.95 (depending on where you buy it) for V-Tech's set-up. Or spend $449.00 for a CMD and hope someone releases a map or spend $728.99 and try and build your own map.

Thanks a lot for breaking it down.

It sure does help to know a think or two about these or at least know someone who does, especially a tuner.
