Hi I'm considering buying the Mazda edit software and leads like phil has as I am going to turbo my Rex in the new year, will I need a piggy back ecu or is this something I can manage with Mazda edit.

Many thanks, Andy

In theory it should be fine, you are pretty much unlimited in what you can do in ME. Be sure you know exactly what you're tweaking :)

Flameshades and Phil will both be very helpful, Phil because he really knows his stuff in general, and Gary is already running a turbo map on his Rex, using ME

We are experimenting with Mazda Edit remapping on our main RX8 however when we fit the turbo kit we will then be using the Adaptronic RX8 ECU we sell as really Map based tuning is the best solution for a boosted engine.

Have already priced up the Greddy kit at £4500 for another customer.
These are a special order item, but you would probably want our coupler upgrade kit a long with an Adaptronic for set it all up properly.

We are also going to be running a GReddy Type FV Blow Off Valve. And GReddy Profec OLED Boost Controller. These we can supply along with radiators for cooling.

the coupler kit is a must, unless you want to take the whole build apart again after a month,
ME is more than enough for the mapping, when my turbo comes back from rebuild it will be mapped close to 400WHP when im done,
OLED controller is what i have too, good kit although you dont "really" need a controller unless you want many powerz.

i was looking at the Adaptronic and nearly shelled out for one, but was told not to bother by the guy thats helping me map mine with ME.

good luck with it all, its not an easy road, (my car has been off the road for 4 months now after blowing the turbo)

make sure you do the investigation into the kit, its not as "bolt on" as expected, not to get it right anyway.

No matter what you fit it's going to be a project not a bolt on

We are planning to start our conversion later in September.
You still kind of need ME as the Adaptronic cannot control everything being a piggyback.

Though Gary has some good points I seriously think a boost controller is essential on an RX8

Yes you can map the 8 with ME along but you are running MAF tuning on a boosted car. To us that's never a good idea. We are able to offer tuning with the Adaptronic from one of the country's top rotary tuners (he is currently mapping Clive's race car and also mapped Europe's fastest drag rotary) he knows his stuff. Not trying to disagree with Flameshades but we just have a difference of opinion.

Thanks for the feedback on the coupler kit Gary.

I agree it's not a simple bolt on job.

I'll be using the standard ECU and a blow-through MAF setup when I finally get my FI project underway. It has loads of scope for tuning and there are plenty of great results over the pond without resorting to a standalone unit, though if you were going for something more exotic ie. non-Renesis then it would be a different story

I too might be going the DIY mapping with Mazdaedit, one to tune the blitz kit, then to tune the Pettit once I swap them over.

I also have a bespoke Pettit map on one of my ECUs which I'm willing to share once I have Mazdaedit.

It may be use to someone out there.

Carl you won't be able to extract the pettit ap from the ECU as it is locked. One of our customers wanted us to make a couple of basic changes to their pettit map. Something that pettit where unable to adjust themselves (I believe) and they have shown no interest in even giving a reply.

This is not the Pettit map Aston this is the GroupBmotorsport map done by Graham for Pettit charger with MazdaEdit

This gave 307hp on the dyno. Not sure how good the map actually is but the offer is there.

Then it will be locked by group b as the mazdaedit does that automatically.
