Hello forum. I have a 12 Mazda 3 Skyactiv 2.0L. Coming back from work today I was passing an unsospecting Fiesta. Pushed through second and third and hit redline at 7K both times (I’m OVTuned). I was in manual mode. Right after shifting to 4th, the christmas tree lit up. CEL flashing, and the Traction Control light was fixed on. The gear number on the gauge disappeared. As expected, engine lost power and i pulled over, but engine was clearly studdering and bouncing around the car at low speed. After letting it sit, shutting it down and restarting, everything ran fine and all lights were gone. This has happened before during logging, but car runs good otherwise, and it’s got a noticeable power increase since before the tune. Does anybody have experience or know of this problem?

Maybe you should ask Matt at OVT. Do some logging, try to duplicate this event and send the log files to him.
i have the log from when it first happened, but he said it might have been excessive knock if i remember correctly. I wanted to see if anybody else knows about this.
