The results and feedback are very good in Singapore so it's worth doing.
The price is not that high if you break it down.

Buying a HKS SLD will cost RM1300-1500. That's already half the price of remap.
So the other half is to bring down your car's temperature and save some fuel and let you enjoy a bit more power.

wangan,

will there be any firmware upgrade to the ECU as well?

Yesss......can't wait to get rid of that DAMN speedcut !!!!! Buying an SLD for Rm1300-Rm1500 just doesn't seem worth it...... I mean, it only cost me Rm400 to remove my previous Rx7 speedcut (TRUST) and Rm450 Boost Cut (also TRUST product).....BUT, that was a long time ago !!!!!

Running slightly lower tempretures would be good too...... Im sure RE has a good MAP to maximise tune........

BEST part of it....... We don't have to drive down to Singapore..........

yeah thats what i was thinking too, SLD is paying so much for so little.

so speed cut is definately a good point,

as for rev cut... whats the point actually, rev cut is actually good for engine protection, besides, there is no more power after 9K

cooler engine and more fuel efficient is useful also, but its intangible and subjective

This is what I was told.

The mapping will be for RE-A updated reprogramming of RX8 ECU which is what we have been talking about and Mazda latest released programme combination.

Once I get the confirmation of pricing, you can register by sending me PM and deposit of course.

Regarding the Rev cut thing, here's what I was told from a friend in Singapore.
It is true that there is no more power after the higher RPM.
However, by doing that, the RPM won't drop as much when you change gear. So that's the benefit. But have to try personally then know.

just read the SG tread, i think over all its a worthy purchase, (tho there is nothing to hold)

its actually equal to a bundle of; SLD, mazsport-cooling fan mod, fuel saver, and ofcoz more power. for 2K or below, its justifiable.

Wangan, i think its really worth it to do remapping.
it really worth it to remap because:
1. speedcut, the HKS SLD already cost so much.
2. rev limit upgrade, they are not giving the 8 max out power, still there is a safety factor on RE remap. so its safe.
3. fuel efficiency, its like emanage tune, we are using different fuel, different sea level, different oxygen level, and it also depend on your in car modification. worth it cause emanage will cost u RM2000 also.
4. lower temperature for the cooling fan is a must! cause our weather is hot! if u see on Racing beat website the modification for cooling fan is more than RM2000

WORTH IT!


but i think without our car there, we can't really get the fuel efficiency tune right, cause they do not know our mod in the car. like turbo 8 is different tuneon ecu with/without exhaust upgrade

Wangan, what about the ecu for Mazdaspeed Limited Edition, which Mazda has tuned up the engine using it's exclusively designed PCM (Powertrain Control Module) to match the modified intake and exhaust systems of the Mazdaspeed Version....
