Um. Nope. In fact, they don't support any naturally aspirated cars any more. MazdaEdit is the solution for tuning Series2 RX-8s.

Here is the thread: https://www.rx8club.com/series-i-eng...daedit-239275/

It starts off figuring out stuff and a bit slow, but don't get turned off by that. It really is a completely viable solution for S2s at this point, and several S2 owners are tuning just fine on it

Price:
MazdaEdit personal is $250, plus you need a $170 cable (which you can probably find cheaper), so $420.
CobbAP is $500.

Hardware:
MazdaEdit requires you to have a laptop
Cobb gives you a device that can give single data point live data, but can also fail/overheat/etc...


That's about it. They are otherwise just two different pieces of software that enable editing of the ECU's flash, and both can reflash just fine. If anything, MazdaEdit has the advantages.

Um, no. Adaptronic Select is a $1,700ish piggyback. MazdaEdit is flash based tuning. You do one or the other, not both. Take a read through the thread I linked.

Yeah, the Adaptronic Select is the only viable piggyback, since it completely controls fueling by itself, it also allows you to go to MAP based tuning. Other piggybacks still let the ECU control fueling still, so the ECU will slowly over-write the piggyback changes until your engine blows from being too lean. But then, the Adaptronic Select is more of an ECU replacement as far as the engine is concerned, and it's priced accordingly. Only a few hundred off the ECU replacement I have for my MSM.
