Here's a rom from a Mazda RX-8. Apparently you can download them from Mazdas tech site which is where the dude that sent it to me got it. They are very similar to the Subaru roms and you can easily make out the fuel, timing and maf scaling tables. Not that it matters as there is no way to flash it, but I thought it might be interesting for some of you tech heads out there.

0x2023:
"Copr.DENSO2000S"

0x3B28:
"Copyright 1999 Hitachi,Ltd.Hitachi Vehicle Operating System for SH-2 Operating System, Product Version V2.1A 1999"

Same CPU, manufacturer, and software provider as the Subaru. Maybe someone can send Colby an ECU to work on if he's willing.

This is *precisely* the same as what is found in the 32bit Subarus.

I'm also pretty sure it is the same Renesas 7055 as found in the 2004 2.5L DBW Subaru models. Same stack location in memory, and I see references to some of the same registers which are CPU revision specific (thus it could not be a 7058, or non-Renesas SH-2, etc.)

according to trey cobb there are differences between them, so it isn't as clear cut as we think.


more complex flash passkeys or something?

Must be the "please dont do this before my AP comes out for them" complexity :wink:

Sounds like there's not much power to be had. They said modifying timing made little to no difference on the dyno. They also had to remove the knock sensor and front o2 for their tune? :shock:

Yeah, figured they could get more out of that motor, but guess not.

this is what I was sad to see

"Mazda has already cut the mixture to maximum efficiency - it is so close to ideal there was nothing significant we could do the improve it. This was discouraging to discover, but common sense says Mazda tried very hard to optimize fuel mileage - and our findings confirmed this."

What about the Mazdaspeed 3? Low production, but if it uses a similar/same ECU I'm sure there would be some gearheads that want to tweak the boy toy.

Are there maps that can be generated and read with romraider with work, coaxing, and beer? I recently acquired an 8 and would like to start tuning it, but found the resources available are very limited and scarce, can anyone help, PLEASE? ALso, whatever I can do to help this happen, let me know...

You won't be able to tune it unless there is software/hardware to flash the RX-8.

no problem with that part... what about reading it and making sense of the hex?
