Hey torque, should I get the pedal commander or no. I heard that OV changes the throttle sensitivity when you get the tune, would that be good enough or would you suggest I get the pedal commander too.
OV has not touched the throttle yet and they originally told me that had not cracked those codes yet and that once they did I would have an update to those eventually. So, I am still using the Pedal Commander. But... the increase in torque may be enough that you would be satisfied without it.

Thats odd, they told me the TB calibration was part of the tune, no longer a separate option.
It will be once they have those files ready. It is included in the price of the tune and not separate like it used to be. It is just that the tuning of the throttle tables was not ready as of the time I started the process. I was told that when it was ready, even if I had my final tune, that I would get that included.

Hey Torque, what happens when you put the car in Sport mode? Does that just change the transmission shift points and throttle sensitivity? If so, do they re-program any of that with the new tune files?

Got it , thank you. Also that's a good question , I wonder if they change anything about sport mode.

If my previous OV tune (CX-3) is any indication, Sport mode shifting is not changed. The OV tune only affects the engine, not the transmission. As far as Sport mode throttle tuning, it is only changed insomuch as the overall throttle tuning is changed. If he changes the throttle tables, then Sport just adds responsiveness on top of that.

I am waiting on my third tune. It has been a couple of weeks since I sent my logs, but I have not gotten any response back.

Thanks for the updates and info! This is something I might be interested in doing to my '18 Signature, so I'v been watching your results closely.

The only concern for me is the time it takes to get a response. I'm not sure I would be patient enough to wait weeks/months for something I paid for.

With the 2nd tune you have now, have you been happy with it now that you've had more time with it?

It takes patience... It was not nearly this bad before. They are extremely busy with tuning for other brands, plus the owner is a new father, so I am sure that is a contributor. Further, they had intended to stop Mazda tuning, but the community kind of pulled them back in, so we are not really a priority.

I am very happy with the tune and honestly if he told me that it was the max he could do and the logs looked fine, then I would be okay with that. It is a definite improvement. I have only experienced a couple of quirks, such as a little jerky twice when cold, but that is something I have experienced with stock non-turbo Skyactiv engines and is kind of common due to the way they are tuned. The idle is less bumpy than a stock Skyactiv, so that is a plus. Further that jerkiness was early in the tune before the computer had time to adapt a little to the new parameters. It has been wonderful with tons of power/torque for a while now and I would just like to know if the logs look fine and if there is more he can do or not.

I put on the corksport intake a couple of days and immediately I noticed that it seems to have greater turbo lag. for example when I floor it while cruising at about 15 mph , the engine spins from ~2000 rpms to ~4500rpms and within that time the car doesn't really move. Then at about 4600 rpms the car starts to move as if the power is just now coming in (probably the turbo finishing spinning up). Then at about 5200 rpms it shifts to the next gear. In full when I floor it , nothing happens, then the car pulls off a little bit , then it stops to shift, then it continues to move normally. Its a very unsatisfying feeling because I get 0 response when I floor it for about 2 secs. I will try to get get a video of it. Im guessing its happening because the car is thrown off by the different amount of air coming in due to the new intake, but I would think if anything it would be less turbo lag from a higher amount of air. I didn't put the boost tube on and I know that's suppose to help with throttle response, just curious if you noticed anything when you put yours on.

I drove today and it hasn't done it. I didn't change or do anything so I'm guessing the ecu just needed time to adjust.

It has basically been a month since I sent my last logs and nothing... Not sure what is going on.

I have been trying for a while now. No response...

I know Mat and his wife had a baby recently, but I thought one of his employees was handling most of the Mazda stuff (Rafael).

Give him a week or two and he should get back to you anytime soon.

And that "employee", I'm not sure if he is really an employee. I think it is more of a "partner", or sort of.

Anyways, he'll get back to you.
