MazdaEdit - Setup
Seeings there is no information, that I can find anyhow, im starting this thread to discuss mazdaedit from epifanSoftware ( http://www.epifansoft.com/mazdaEdit.html )
There are 3 versions of the application which are discussed in detail on the vendors site (http://www.epifansoft.com/mazdaEdit-...ns-prices.html). They are
Another thing to consider is that the software is designed for people who know what they are doing and can figure stuff out = SO BE WARNED: you are on your own =
Order and Install
There is a little back and forth on this to get license codes so it’s a multi-day affair and not an "install and go" type if thing, that said the vendor is very responsive.
You will need the following to do the install
Part 3 - Device (OP2) and VIN Activation
Part 4 - ECU Dump
NOTE: like every other modern car, your Mazda is one of many and Mazda may have used one of two types of ECU on your car. This is not apparent to the vendor until the first review of your dump file is completed = there is a chance that you will have to repeat this process twice, once with the 512Kb and once with the 1Mb template = Be Patient
Part 5 - Template and BIN install
If you receive an update directly from the vendor the only thing you have to watch out for is the eep file. The update is basically a fresh install and it overwrites your custom eep file so you will have copy your EEP file back ( See "Part 5 - Template and BIN install" steps 1 and 2)
The Mazdaedit application is made up of a number of modules which are

Once you are up and running this is really the first thing to do. In my opinion if you don't log and record and baseline you may as well give up now.
Why? Well if you are making changes you need to know where you were and where you are now = was what you did beneficial or not ( Directly or Indirectly), did anything else change or was it just the same pre and post change. Additionally, it's a vital input to tuning and tells you what you need to do. Basically, take the guess work out of it and let the logs do the work.
Another thing to consider about base lining = any and all issues should be fixed before you start messing about... eg if your LTFT numbers are greater than 3 or less than -3 there is something wrong and you should fix the issue before doing anything else = always start from a position of correctness and tune to that position after a change....
There are two types of logger
epifansoft have done a very good job with the documentation on how to use the application and you can download it from here :http://www.epifansoft.com/ecuEdit-downloads.html
The only big diffrence for MazdaEdit users is that you will have already installed the logger, so don't go and install ecuEdit, and you access logger via mazdaedit Vs ecuEdit. In other words jump straight to chapter 4.
Get familiar with the logger, its incredibly important and critical to success = if u cant see it, you cant measure it and if you cant measure it you cant manage it.
I would recommend that you keep the number of monitored items to a minimum and specific to the exercise you are undertaking ( the more items the slower the update the less accurate the log) and that a number of templates be created and tested before you get cracking. These can be used when you log and save a ton of time...
This is where the action and danger is. All key processes of the engine and how it operates are accessible here = you can really do some good or damage so be cautious.
When you open a HEX you are presented with an array of information ranging from Ignition to Fueling.
Before your start changing anything get familiar with the interface and set your preferences.
The flash utility does what it says on the box, it flashes the ECU.
The flash utility can be accessed thru the main MEP application ( under the tools menu option) or thru the MAP editor ( under the tools menu option)
Before you start there are a few things to consider
The Flash utility:

The following are the table listings and descriptions broken out into

Thanks for copying and pasting the available map list Epifan sent me, here. This should be a super useful thread even for the non-turbo guys. Can't wait to order my Tactrix cable!
According to Epifan though, some of the maps may have detailed descriptions like Evo version of EcuEdit. It's sometimes a little hard to tell exactly what he's saying since he's Russian and a lot of his stuff is translated.
I guess you can read his responses and decide for yourself...
Subbing. You're tuning this yourself, or is DT going to step in?
What was the cost for the softwre/license/hardware?
Yep that's what this is ... No glory just info ... Mazdaedit only ... Not build specific just add as info becomes available ... Don't know how ill tune may go to dt maybe not tbo ... Need to look at what's out of the box ... Regardless the info regarding mazdaedit should probably end up here
No sig for me
Ps direct from vendor cost I think may be a little more or about the same as dt ....
No sig for me
