VersaTuner

ECU tuning/remapping software for:

2010-2013 (2nd gen) Mazdaspeed3, Mazda 3 MPS or MazdaSpeed Axela

Supported engines: 2.3l MZR DISI Turbo (all regions)

Gen 2 Mazdaspeed3/Mazda 3 MPS Tuning Made Easy

VersaTuner has been carefully designed to be easy to understand for first time users and at the same time allows experienced tuners to work efficiently. All features are accessible from one Windows app with a sleek and modern user interface. Guides and wizards lead you through the important processes. The UI is optimized both for touch-based use on tablets as well as laptops and desktop PCs.

Safe and Reliable

VersaTuner is a true reflashing (remapping/chip tuning) solution for the Gen 2 Mazdaspeed3/Mazda 3 MPS, not a "piggyback" controller. No wires need to be spliced and all built-in safety features of the ECU are retained. It uses the same flashing methods that are used by dealerships when updating your ECU. Built in recovery feature can flash the ECU even in the unlikely event of power failure. Your stock calibration is backed up, so you can go back to stock at any time.

Online Tune Database

A growing selection of prebuilt Gen 2 Mazdaspeed3/Mazda 3 MPS tunes is available right from the app. If you have a stock or mildly modified vehicle, flash a suitable tune with a couple of clicks and enjoy. All our tunes can be downloaded and edited and serve as a great starting point for custom or high power tunes. With our prebuilt tunes, Gen 2 Mazdaspeed3/Mazda 3 MPS tuning has never been easier!

Tune Editor

VersaTuner includes an advanced tune editor allowing you to edit a multitude of tables, maps and constants and customize existing or create custom tunes for your Gen 2 Mazdaspeed3/Mazda 3 MPS. It comes with a ton of productivity features, such as tune comparison, visualization, interpolation and automated translation of descriptions to 110+ languages.

Dashboard & Log Viewer

Virtual dashboard allows you to view and record all the vital engine parameters simultaneously. Analyze recorded logs later using a graphical log viewer or export them to Excel or Virtual Dyno.

Diagnostics

Read and clear DTCs from multiple modules, not just your engine ECU. A vast number of standard and Mazda-specific DTCs is supported.

Features & Extras

More Power, Faster Acceleration

VersaTuner allows you to safely and easily increase the horsepower and torque of your engine. That results in faster launches and better 0-60/0-100 times.

After driving a tuned car you will never want to go back to stock again!*

* going back to stock only takes a couple of minutes with VersaTuner, when needed

Full Potential of Modifications

Have you fitted an uprated intake or intercooler? A bigger turbo and exhaust?

On modern cars, upgrading parts alone will not have a significant effect unless accompanied by changes in ECU tuning. VersaTuner allows you to realize the full potential of your mods. Update the tune easily as you add new parts in the future.

Launch Control & No Lift Shifting

Perfect launches have never been easier. VersaTuner limits the launch RPMs so that the only thing you need to worry about is releasing the clutch at the right moment. With no lift shifting, you can go through gears without releasing the accelerator and loosing boost. All settings are fully adjustable!

* manual transmission only

MegaSpool

A Mazdaspeed/Mazda MPS tuning first. Now even the biggest turbos can be fully spooled at launch for immediate boost and power. MegaSpool provides configurable timing retard during launch control and no lift shifting. As a bonus, it also sounds awesome!

E85 Tuning

VersaTuner includes all necessary tables to allow your car to properly start and run on E85 ethanol fuel. A handy E85 calculator helps with calculating the right values depending on the blend you use.

SWAS Disable

You can now disable all torque limiters, including traction control and torque vectoring due to steering angle sensor (SWAS) input. Get full power of the engine delivered to the wheels in every gear, in any road conditions, even when cornering.

Push the Limits

  • Change the speed limiter
  • Change the rev limiter
  • Open throttle till redline
  • Make accelerator pedal more responsive
  • Use large turbos, MAP sensors and MAF housings

Fix Issues

  • Eliminate stutter when shifting
  • Fix turbo smoking issues by adjusting idle RPM
  • Fix MAF calibrations skewed by aftermarket intakes
  • Disable DTCs when you remove parts like EGR or VTCS for track use

Special Tunes

Anti-theft tune will prevent the car from starting and keep the intruder confused, offering you peace of mind when you need to leave the car for a long time.

Valet tune significantly reduces the power and speed of the car and is perfect for those situations when someone needs to borrow your precious vehicle.

Available Gen 2 Mazdaspeed3/Mazda 3 MPS Tunes

This is a list of currently available free VersaTuner tunes for 2010-2013 (2nd gen) Mazdaspeed3, Mazda 3 MPS or MazdaSpeed Axela. All these tunes can be flashed both with VersaTuner Lite and the full version. New tunes are regularly added based on demand. If you can't find a suitable tune, you can contact a professional tuner or an e-tuner working with VersaTuner. You can also create a custom tune yourself with the full version of VersaTuner, using any of these tunes as a starting point.

Editable Tables and Constants

Full version of VersaTuner includes a tune editor that allows you to change the aspects of your Mazda ECU operation related to power delivery and fuel efficiency. Tuning your Gen 2 Mazdaspeed3/Mazda 3 MPS ECU is done by changing the tables and constants that the ECU uses internally to calculate load targeting, fueling, injection, ignition, interpret sensor values, etc.

A list of all currently available tables and constants (also known as maps) for tuning your Gen 2 Mazdaspeed3/Mazda 3 MPS ECU is provided below. As we continue to analyze the ECU logic and develop new tunes, we may make new maps available.
