@OrangeVirus Tuning has generously given members of this forum a chance of a lifetime to have their 3rd generation Mazda 6 Skyactive engines tuned to their liking.

Please find below detailed information regarding the tune, and a list of members who have already signed up:



Details:

okay Everyone here it is! 20% discounted price purchase, it's not letting me add as a linkable button, so the link is posted.



Once you have purchased, please EMAIL : [email protected] with:
Your first / last name and forum name
your vehicle: (example Mazda 6 2014 AT or Mazda 6 2014 MT)
your mods:



Before you purchase the software, or a tactrix, please check that your ECU is supported. Its pretty easy to do.
Epifan has said all 2014 *should* be supported, but I recommend checking just in case.

To check:
Pop your cars hood, and in the picture attached, you will see the location of the ECU. Remove the ECU cover (or if necessary the intake as well for room) and you will see on your ECU a Sticker with a code / Number. please PM ME a picture of that ECU sticker / code. I will get back to you within 24-48 (depending on Epifan) if your car is supported and we can go from there!.
ATX and MTX should both be supported.



for ATX owners: Like most Mazdas I've tuned, the transmission is controlled by it's own TCM, and not the PCM. Unfortunately I can't promise that on the mazda 6 I will be able to tune or adjust shift points for the ATX.

If you unplug anything to get access, remember to plug it back in. You shouldn't have to unplug or fully remove the ECU.
you will know you are looking at the correct thing because it should be a small black box with a lot of wires going into it.

Requirements for tune:
You need a MazdaEdit license. you only need LITE for me to tune you. PERSONAL is if you want map access and want to play around with the ECU yourself. ( I don't recommend this unless you know what you're doing ) epifanSoftware | ecuEdit
A Tactrix Open port 2.0. no reflash adapters. Tactrix
A WINDOWS based laptop PC (windows 8 works fine). It has to be a laptop because you need it in the car to flash / datalog.



General recommendations to get the most out of it:
91 or 93 octane will give the best results, but aren't required. You can still get a noticeable difference running stock octane requirement.
Intake / exhaust will only help get you more, but not required. A stock car will still see a big difference.
A car that is properly maintained.



- As with every tune I've done, I offer free lifetime updates for as long as you own the car, free support and help, along with that I'm continually working to get the best possible calibration, and everyone who has a tune from me is entitled to any new updates for no charge.

Thanks everyone!
Okay a simple "down and dirty" of how it works.

First I want to make it clear to everyone, you can't hurt your ECU. The only way you're going to mess your car up is if you crash it, OR lets say you are tuned for 93 octane..and put 85 in the tank. Now it may not hurt the engine (because of the safe maps) but obvious to use common judgement. I don't mind writing tunes for different octane if you want a high octane map but don't want to use it all the time.

Here is how it works:

you register the software to your PC. Epifan creates and controls the keys, it takes him about 2 days to have you all the registration.
you plug the tactrix into the car, and into the computer. you copy your stock ECU, and send it to me.
From there, I write the the base file of your ROM and send it to you.
Following my instruction PDF, you flash the ECU (with the software and tactrix). simply a couple buttons.

Then, you setup the logger. Simply check mark the options I have set out in the instructions, connect to the ECU, start recording and go log. (the computer will have to be with you in the car, connected to the OBD via tactrix). It's easier to just plug it in, toss it in the passenger seat, and record.
you take either one long log, or individual. your choice. I can get what I need out of it either way.
you log idle, for about 2 mins.
you log driving around town, about 5 mins
you log 2x Wide open throttle gear pulls, 2nd gear or higher.
If you're ATX, put it in manual mode(if you have it ) and select a gear and go from the lowest RP it will let you to the highest RPM it will let you.

you send me the logs.
I review the logs, adjust the ROM, send you a new file, you flash the ECU again, then start the process over (logging).
it takes on average about 6 logging iterations / files to complete.

You do it on your time, there is no rush, no deadline. I've had a few people who just do it at their leisure, and are a few months in. I work on the tune when you send me the logs, so it's kinda up to you when you want the tune complete.

I try as hard as I can to get you your file updated and sent to you within 48 hours of receiving your logs. (excluding sundays sorry). The only tie it may be a little longer is when I specifically need something in your ROM and have to search through the hex to find it. I have * MOST * ROMs fully defined, or defined for everything I need, but, to be fair to you and to me, I won't promise that your ECU has everything already defined in my XMLs.
This is only on rare occasions that you would have to wait longer than 48-72 hours when I'm looking for something in the hex, most time I find it within a couple hours.

general information guidelines:
if you tune for 93, it's in your best interest to only put 93 in the tank. these ecus are VERY sensitive, and do have the ability to pull back timing if you put a lower octane in the tank, but I don't recommend it. This goes for 91,89,87.
if you want / need a lower octane map, I am happy to write you one. I charge only a very small fee for additional maps.

If you get a new mod, for instance an intake, your file might need slight recalibration. this is free, simply send me a log, specify what mod was changed, and I'll send you an updated file. No charge for as long as you own the vehicle.

Because I understand a lot of the process is up to the user, and you're not simply dropping the car off with me on a dyno for the day, I try to give you the most that I can, when it comes to support, updates, troubleshooting, etc.
for example, all tunes come with (for as long as you own the car):
free adjustments if you change a mod
free data log review, if 6 months down the road you just want me to make sure everything is still peachy.
Free support for any issues, questions.
Free updates for any cool new stuff we get. For example, we just recently parsed and defined the section of certain sky 2.0 maps that allow us to have direct Air fuel control at Wide open throttle (previously this was impossible and the AFR was locked at 12.6). Everyone got a free update, with adjusted files and it made a huge difference in power.


I wanted to ensure that this really would be the "best bang for the buck" mod. I really don't think you'll find another company out there that would be nice enough to do this much for no additional cost, consider the price of our tune is pennies compared to competitors. You can easily pay $700-1000 bucks for a Dyno tune at a local shop, but all in all, software, hardware, and tune you're paying less than 500 bucks and you keep the hardware and software!, and your car has priority with us for as long as you own it.
The reason why I do this is because I want to be more than simply a "buy it now" button , or a salesmen. I try to be an active part of the car communities. I personally own a Mazda and have a love hate relationship with it (like many lol) but I understand how these communities are here to help each-other. For example I run a 1000+ member mazda tuning group on facebook where we all collaborate and just help each-other out. As much as I am a tuner, i'm also a mazda driver, car enthusiast. I don't do this for the money, believe me I was lead tuner for a shop for a while and making a decent amount, but it wasn't as enjoying just tuning car after car after car, never really establishing that "relationship" between customer and tuner, I do this because I enjoy it.


sorry for the book of a post.
Thanks for all the interest guys.

I do want to make one thing clear about it. The point of these tunes aren't to go just for raw HP and TQ gain. My intention with these tunes were to clean up the stock maps, make it more efficient, and give you some more power at the same time when possible. Kinda like what a stock tune should be.

I focus for drivability with power when you need it. how the car feels to you. Sure, I can do a tune purely for HP/TQ.. but do you also want to give up that great MPG? that "stock like" drivability.

I work with my customers for exactly what they want. Solar didn't specifically say " hey I want MAX POWER!!" No, he explained his issues with how his car was running, what the stock tune was doing and I dialed it in to his requests.

Now this means not every car is going to respond like his, he requested some things most people don't.

If you want as much possible HP and TQ, just let me know when you get your tune. Not a problem, but 93+ octane is required, and just know that a severe decrease in MPG is a very real possibility.

I just want don't want people to get their hopes up like dang 50HP gain! 40HP gain! 10 HP gain :( ... I have some customers who dyno'd only making 7-10HP more (non skyactiv) but were very please with the tune because of how much better it made the car drive.

I'm willing to work with you guys on whatever it is you want. Like I said in the previous post, you get my full support for as long as you own the car, I'm not going to tune your car and run away when it doesn't satisfy you.

As for the 2015-2016 ECU that aren't currently supported, I have no idea what the logic, tables, and calibrations look like, so it would probably take me at least a couple weeks to hash out all the tables I need, the logic on what/ when / why the ecu does what it does.

As an example I spent about 3 months doing just that on the skyactiv 2.0L testing an endless amount of tables, cam timing settings, etc just to get a good BASE calibration. But I'm far from that now :)

I'm fairly confident I have all the kinks worked out for tunes, it's the software itself that's a little kinky. However, Solars ECU for example, had a few AFR tables that were completely different than the sky 2.0, and CX5 2.5L G, So it took me a little bit to find these Fuel tables / multipliers. That's really the only issue being ran into with these tunes, it takes me a bit of time, Unfortunately I'm pretty much the only person really hashing out these hexes to give the best possible calibrations, unlike a company like Cobb where they have a team of highly trained reverse engineers that could probably do IDA coding / engineering in their sleep, or ECUTek..HUGE company, LOTS of custom code in their ROMS... I just one person guys please understand.

(honestly I kind of hope it stays that way though, kinda a "niche" market, the minute a big company picks this stuff up.. poof goes me)
another book post sorry!

I'd delete that dyno image, OVTs comparison virtualdyno of equivalent runs is the image to use.

And as I requested on the technical thread, when you or another admin have the time, please remove all the individual ECU compatibility, purchase inquiry and GB related posts. Basically anything that doesn't fit the thread title. Thanks!

Also upate this OP with the post frrom Tatrix offering a shipping refund to support the group buy on the other thread.

I'll have to take some time to do that, but I'll remove them if they've got nothing to do with the technical discussion.

Thanks everyone! I will be sitting down tonight and finishing the compiling and base files for everyone who sent me out their ECU ROM dumps so far.
So far 5 people have ordered their tune! Epifan is working on getting all the XMLs for the ECUs defined so there will be minimal wait.

Err...

So the tune + epifan = $410?
Then we need to buy a tactrix 2.0 dongle/cable?
Does the epifan group buy come with the epifan software?

Also, the epifan group buy link takes me on a redirect loop to the main forum page... or once in a while it takes me to a 'insecure webpage' (via Google Chrome)

One last question, is the tune detectable by dealers for warranty services? (i.e. Subaru is able to tell how many flashes an ECU has been through, therefore 'voiding' your powertrain warranty)

Edit: I have a 2015 with a build date of 11/2014... Happen to know if cars from that date have flashable ECUs? (It's late and I'm kinda lazy so I don't want to dismantle my ECU at the moment.) tx!

The ECU code is visible from the back side of the unit without removing the battery. Just pop the hood and have a look at the coding on the sticker.

The Tactrix is part of the $410; all the components are bought separately (tune + flashing software + Tactrix.)

Note that the flashing software has a multi-step licensing process that locks it to your computer, VIN and it appears the Tactrix fingerprint as well so you can't get set up until you have the Tactrix OBD interface in-hand.

$410 is the cost of everything you need, the dealership can't tell and won't even look unless you tell them, I don't think there is a single dealership out there that knows these are tunable.

There is no way to know from your build date, we must see the ECU ID.

If the stealer drives the car they will know instantly if the results are +~30 HP and a commensurate improvement in torque. The mechanic may in fact go looking for what he believes is a hidden turbocharger.... :)

I'd flash back to stock before taking the car in for service as a notation in the vehicle's file at any authorized dealer on such "super" performance could cause trouble with the powertrain warranty down the road.

I took my Jetta in after sticking bigger nozzles in it once; it was out of warranty at the time but had a recall I had them do -- when they gave it back they asked quite-directly what I had done to the car as there was no *visible* difference from stock. I'm sure it got noted in their computer somewhere. Heh heh heh....

cool, thanks. Can I still use the Tactrix dongle/cable for other cars after flashing the 6 or does the software lock the tactrix device to the car? (i.e. Flash the Mazda, then flash a Subaru w/ different software, then be able to reflash Mazda again) Sorry, been using a Cobb AP so I'm n00b.

Ok, I'll have to read the thread again to find the links to everything I need to buy...

I worry cause we have some really craptastic Mazda dealers up here... $13/quart for GF5 Moly oil; says he's giving me the best deal at $10/quart. Then there's the incompetent service advisors who don't know what BCM or TSB stand for.

Yes, you can use it with other cars.... but the Epifan software is locked to the single vehicle you register it to..... (the interface, not.)

Tickerguy is 2015 MT mazda 6 and his ECU has been confirmed supported and I have his working ROM (currently building base file right now :) )

So for all 2015 folks that didn't want to get in on this because of the possibility they weren't supported, I'd really recommend checking your ECU :D

My 2015 is also supported...but I'm in the back of the pack thanks to living on east coast and waiting friggin forever for USPS to deliver the tactrix port...finally arrived today so waiting for Epifan to give me my codes so I can also put OVT to work! Hahaha.

Hey guys / gals just to make it a little easier for me, if you have any questions that you need to ask me directly, please Email me [email protected]. My phone notifies me when I get an email so I will be able to respond shortly after, but it's difficult juggling email, forum PM, forum public messages and Thread posts all at once.

Also it helps me a lot if you email me, especially regarding your tune so I can correlate it with the person and the file / tune in question.
@ballsy yes you are correct you need the fuel to be tuned in the tank prior to datalogs. You can datalog the base file on whatever, but after that the proper fuel needs to be in the tank

@tickerguy, OVT said me and you have same exact ECU (he's working on my dump file now) and I believe you are running stock still? It will be cool to compare difference in results with stock vs mods (really I only have an SRI, my RB axleback exhaust I would imagine does not offer any performance improvement over stock other than lighter weight....).

I see that the Tactrix Openport 2.0 has a micro sd slot... can that be used for logging, instead of having to carry the laptop around in the car?
