v4.0.0 INSTRUCTIONS


 

 

 

PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS – SEVERAL ITEMS HAVE CHANGED.
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY WILL LEAD TO REJECTION OF YOUR SUBMISSION!
 

 

Please download the appropriate calibration for your application here:

 

MazdaManiac AccessPORT BASE Calibration Database

 
 

(Your password was included in the instructions you downloaded at the time of purchase.)

 
 

 

To verify your proper application, follow the "install" directions below up to the point where the AccessPORT identifies your vehicle. Use the proper calibration based on what the AccessPORT tells you - NOT what you believe your model to be. The AccessPORT asks the car's PCM to identify itself, so it knows best what model to use for calibration purposes. It is not unusual to be located, for instance, in New York and have a California model.

If your vehicle has a modified or non-standard MAF housing with a different inside diameter than the OEM diameter or if you have modified or non-standard primary fuel injectors, you MUST submit for a modified base calibration for your particular application before proceeding. See the Custom Calibration Submission Schedule for current submission dates and times.

 
 

 

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

 
  If you submit any communication by any other method than that explained on the Custom Calibration Submission Schedule page, your submission will be completely ignored and discarded! NO EXCEPTIONS!  
 

 

European, Australian and Asian Market Users:

 
 

Please be sure to download the "BETA" version of the firmware to ensure your models are supported.
Go to your AccessPORT updater software. Go to the “Tools” drop down menu and make sure the “beta” firmware options are checked. Restart the updater and then connect your AccessPORT.

If the AccessPORT refuses to identify your particular model, follow the instructions on the AccessPORT screen to obtain a “ROM dump” and refer to the Custom Calibration Submission Schedule page for further instructions.

 
   

 

 
 

1) If your AccessPORT is currently installed, uninstall your AccessPORT from your car by following the uninstall directions provided by the AccessPORT menu uninstall option.
2) Remove ALL existing calibrations from your AccessPORT using the AP Manager software. You can save them on your computer if you like for future reference.
3) Update the AccessPORT firmware using the AccessPORT Manager software.
4) UnZIP the new MazdaManiac base calibration that you have downloaded and move it to the AP Manager and then onto your AccessPORT using the AP Manager software.
5) Install the new Base Calibration on your vehicle's PCM using the install menu option on the AccessPORT. If your AccessPORT identifies your model differently than the selection you have made from the above link, you will not be able to install the new base calibration.
6) Start your vehicle, bring it to operating temperature and drive it carefully for a few minutes. On non-OEM boosted applications, avoid going into manifold pressures above 2 or 3 PSI until after you have completed the procedure for your first calibration submission. For the purposes of the Calibration Service, IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO OBSERVE ANY DISPLAYED PARAMETERS AT THIS TIME (though you may, if you choose to do so).

 

 

If your vehicle will not run/idle, please complete as much of the data-logging procedure as you can safely and contact MazdaManiac using the Custom Calibration Submission Schedule page.
If you have a non-OEM boosted application, avoid the boosted ranges to the best of your ability until after you have received your customized calibration.


After performing one complete drive cycle (a “drive cycle” is bringing your vehicle up to operating temperature and driving it normally and then allowing it to cool off again completely), your vehicle will be ready to provide the required data-log feedback the MazdaManiac for further customization and tuning.

 

   
  Perform the following data-log procedure:  
 

1) Plug your AccessPORT into the vehicle's DLC (OBD) port and start the car. Allow it to warm up thoroughly.
2) Select "Monitor" from the menu options. Press the "OK" button.
3) Select "Set Data Log List" from the "Monitor" menu. Press the "OK" button.
4) check ONLY the following option check-boxes:

 
 
• Equiv. Ratio
• Calculated Load
• Long Term FT1
• Mass Airflow
• RPM
• Short Term FT1
• Vehicle Speed
• Accel. Pedal Position
• Boost (PSI) (ONLY ON OEM BOOSTED APPLICATIONS)
• Actual AFR (AFR) (ONLY ON OEM BOOSTED APPLICATIONS)
• HPFP Act. Press. (PSI) (ONLY ON OEM BOOSTED DISI APPLICATIONS EQUIPPED WITH A HIGH-PRESSURE FUEL PUMP)
 
 

5) Press the "Back" button then press the "OK" button.
6) Select "Data Log" from the "Monitor" menu. Press the "OK" button
7) Press the "OK" button again to start the data-log.
8) After approximately 10 seconds, Press the "OK" button again to stop the data-log. You have just created your first data-log of the engine's idle performance.
9) Take your vehicle to a safe section of relatively flat highway where you can get the vehicle up to 4200 RPM for several miles at a time without being disturbed. On manual transmission-equipped vehicles, this will be performed in
4th gear. On 4-speed automatic transmission-equipped vehicles, this will be performed in 2nd gear. On 6-speed automatic transmission-equipped vehicles, this will be performed in 4th gear. On non-OEM forced-induction applications, DO NOT go into boost.
10) Once you are up to 4200 RPM, turn on your A/C, headlamps and rear defroster and set the cruise control to hold your speed. On vehicles with no cruise control, hold the vehicle speed as constant as you can with the gas pedal.
11) Press the "OK" button again to start the data-log and continue to cruise for a minimum of 30 seconds.
12) Press the "OK" button again to stop the log and return to your starting location.

 
  You can now download these two data-logs that you have created using the "Advanced View" menu (ctrl-D) in the AP Manager. They will be saved as Microsoft Excel “CSV” files. Place both of these datalogs on your desktop, along with the base calibration that you downloaded and installed in your car's PCM so that you will have them ready during the live tuning session on Google Hangouts.
Refer to the Custom Calibration Submission Schedule page for submission instructions, dates and times.

 

 
 

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU HAVE THE 2 DATALOG FILES AND THE ORIGINAL DOWNLOADED BASE CALIBRATION FILE OR YOUR SUBMISSION WILL BE REJECTED!

 

 
  Whenever communicating information to MazdaManiac, please have the information required in the “11 Deadly Questions”:
