v4.0.1 INSTRUCTIONS


 

 

 

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

 

 
 

 

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!  
   
   
     
 

1) 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.
2) Update the AccessPORT firmware using the AccessPORT Manager software.
3) UnZIP your updated custom calibration and move it to the AP Manager and then onto your AccessPORT using the AP Manager software.
4) Install your updated custom calibration on your vehicle's PCM using the install menu option on the AccessPORT.
5) 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 5 or 6 PSI until after you have completed the procedure.

 

 

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.

ON BOOSTED APPLICATIONS – IF YOU OBSERVE EQUIVALENCE RATIOS (AFR) ABOVE 12.0 AT MANIFOLD PRESSURES OVER 3 PSI OR HEAR AUDIBLE RATTLE OR KNOCK, IMMEDIATELY RELEASE THE GAS PEDAL AND DO NOT ATTEMPT ANOTHER WOT PASS UNTIL CONTACTING MAZDAMANIAC!


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
• Ign. Tim. (WILL BE LABLED "LEAD" ON ROTARY APPLICATIONS)
• Ign. Separation (ONLY ON ROTARY APPLICATIONS)
• 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) Scroll to the Equiv. Ratio display to monitor your air-fuel ratios during logging.
8) Press the "OK" button again to start the data-log.
9) 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.
10) 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.
11) 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.
12) Press the "OK" button again to start the data-log and continue to cruise for a minimum of 30 seconds.
13) Press the "OK" button again to stop the log.
14) Again, on a safe section of open, flat highway, lower your RPMs to 2500 in 2nd gear (1st gear on the 4-speed automatic).
15) Press the "OK" button again to start the data-log and accelerate at WOT to redline. On boosted applications, ease into full throttle and observe your Equivalence ratios or Actual AFR. If the Equivalence ratio or Actual AFR is above 12:1 at RPMs over 4000, back off the throttle and proceed to the next step.
16) Release the gas pedal and allow the vehicle to slow and your RPMs to drop and switch to 3rd gear (2nd gear on the 4-speed automatic).
17) When your RPMs have dropped to 2700, once again accelerate at WOT to redline or to the highest safe speed you can attain. On boosted applications, ease into full throttle and observe your Equivalence ratios or Actual AFR. If the Equivalence ratio or Actual AFR is above 12:1 at RPMs over 4000, back off the throttle and proceed to the next step.
18) Press the "OK" button again to stop the log and return to your starting location.


ON BOOSTED APPLICATIONS – IF YOU OBSERVE EQUIVALENCE RATIOS (AFR) ABOVE 12.0 AT RPMs OVER 4000 OR HEAR AUDIBLE RATTLE KNOCK, IMMEDIATELY RELEASE THE GAS PEDAL AND DO NOT ATTEMPT ANOTHER WOT PASS UNTIL CONTACTING MAZDAMANIAC.
 

 
  You can now download these three 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 all three of these datalogs on your desktop, along with the updated v4.0.x calibration that you downloaded and installed in your car's PCM after the previous live tuning session so that you will have them ready during the next 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 3 DATALOG FILES AND THE CURRENT CALIBRATION FILE OR YOUR SUBMISSION WILL BE REJECTED!

 

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