FYI.. the tuning process is fun... WOT logs in 3rd gear with a max speed of 115 mph or so on surface streets..or wherever you find a stretch of flat straight road..

I only almost died twice.. piece of cake..

Hi, as I bought a Skyactive X - 180hp, i'm wondering whats the max we can get from our new enginge.
(I work as a Graphics-Designer and I'm not a car mechanic - or a programmer.)

I was wondering, if there's any potential in "software-tuning" the car?
I know the 180hp AWD is supercharged, so if you change the value of the charger, do you get a better performance?
Has anybody experience with this kind of "tuning"?


What are you guys puting into your engine to get the most out of it?

Thanks!
Just got a Skyactive-X and feeling a little underwhelmed, so I was looking around to see if there are tuning options too. Didn't find much, except for this one: w w w .tuning-powerbox.nl/chiptuning/mazda/mazda_3_2019_-/2.0_skyactiv-x_180_pk/ (not allowed to post links yet).
Claims to go from 180 to 198 hp and torque from 224 to 249 Nm for € 268,00. Not too sure about these boxes though...

Yes, that was the tuner I posted. Now who is going to try it out? ?

So, anyone ? ??
I'm tempted to try it. I know someone who has a similar box (not for mazda though) and it seems like a very straightforward, and easiliy revertible task. Apparently a matter of minutes depending on how easily accessible the connectors are.

My main gripe is my lease company which does not permit the use of these tuning boxes and if the car does break down due to this, I'm in a world of trouble.

I wouldn't mess around with the Skyactiv-X engine yet. There's a lot going on under the hood and it's a new technology. Maybe with some time, tuning maybe an option, but hard to say.

Also, my 2.5L N/A engine is OV Tuned. Rev and speed limiters increased. Throttle response has been remapped and my camshaft timing has been adjusted. Changed the whole driving dynamic of this car.

could you send a link for the tune, or how to go about getting it tuned? I would love my car to be Not slow lol.

I see it’s not available anymore lol. This is what I get for reading this at 5am when I first wake up lol.
But any info on how to get my car tuned would be greatly appreciated.

They may still tune you. They provide Mazda tunes on a case-by-case basis. Be patient for a response, as they are very busy. May take a couple weeks.
