Default RX-8 AccessPORT Tuning WEBCast Seminar

RX-8 AccessPORT Tuning WEBCast Seminar

This four-part WEBCast seminar offers the Cobb AccessPORT user/tuner the opportunity to interact LIVE with MazdaManiac and observe the operation and tuning of the AccessPORT in a variety of RX-8 modification scenarios, including naturally-aspirated AND forced induction. Participants will receive hands-on training in the creation of custom, application-specific calibrations and detailed explanations of every engine management strategy addressed in the Cobb AccessPORT AccessTUNER software.

Utilizing DimDim WEB Conferencing, participants can watch live-streaming video of MazdaManiac as well as see exactly how the software is utilized in real-time on MazdaManiac's desktop. Participants can engage in live chat and even teleconference via phone for group discussion. Class size is restricted to 10 participants per session to maximize participant interactivity with each other and MazdaManiac.

Part One: Introduction to the AccessPORT Hardware, Software and MazdaManiac Custom Calibration Service

Participants are introduced to the AccessPORT hardware and software, including the AccessPORT Manager, AccessPORT Updater and AccessTUNER tools. Participants are guided step-by-step through the process of updating, installing and logging with the AccessPORT on the RX-8 and the submission process for the MazdaManiac Custom Calibration service is thoroughly explained. Datalogging is demonstrated as well as updating the AccessPORT firmware and using the AccessPORT Manager to move calibrations on and off the AccessPORT as well as downloading datalog files. As an introduction to the AccessTUNER software, participants are guided through the functions of the software as well as the individual tables and their use in the calibration process.
Part One - Tuesday, June 16h 6:00pm PDT (9:00pm EDT)

Part Two: AccessTUNER Software Functions and Engine Management Operation

Participants are guided through the function and manipulation of the AccessTUNER software tables and lists and their effect on drivetrain function. Individual tables are explained and the process of calibrating sensor response, commanding fuel values and calibrating actuator range is demonstrated. Understanding the effect of individual tables on the resultant engine output is emphasized and utilizing datalogging to monitor engine response is demonstrated. Engine management concepts are explained and demonstrated in the context of the AccessPORT AccessTUNER software. Open and closed-loop fueling tables are studied in depth as well as the ignition tables and actuator tables.
Part Two - Tuesday, June 23rd 6:00pm PDT (9:00pm EDT)

Part Three: Advanced AccessTUNER Calibration Techniques

Participants receive in-depth instruction on the AccessTUNER tables and their use in highly modified contexts. Modification of actuator scaling tables, offsets and compensation is demonstrated for RX-8 applications utilizing forced induction devices, larger injectors, aftermarket ignition systems and intake systems. Injector latency, ignitor dwell and MAF/injector scaling interaction is explained as well as limiting tables, OMP function and igntion and fuel modifier tables and their effect on engine output. "Problem" scenarios are identified and difficulties with table interactions are addressed, with emphasis on "real-world" tuning issues on modified RX-8s. So much information is covered in this last section that it is divided into two parts.
Part Three A - Tuesday, June 30th 6:00pm PDT (9:00pm EDT)

Part Three B - Tuesday, July 7th 6:00pm PDT (9:00pm EDT)

Additional dates for all three sessions will be added as necessary.

Some answers to a few of the questions I've been asked:

1) You don't need any special software for the DimDim WEB Conferencing. Its WEB-based. After you enroll, you will be sent an e-mail with a secure WEB address. You just click on the link at the appropriate time and you will be taken to the site. You will want a decent internet connection, though.

2) The sessions will run between 2 and 2 1/2 hours each. We'll go longer if needed, but I doubt it will go much longer than 2 hours. Since its a live seminar, it is difficult to time it to work over a wide range of time zones. If there is sufficient interest in places where there is a 12 hour time difference, I'll conduct sessions to accommodate Europe and/or Asia.

3) You don't need to have the Cobb ATR or PRO software to enroll, but it would probably be useful. All of the demonstration will be done with the PRO software and the live desktop will be full resolution, so you will get a good look at what is going on, even without having the software readily available.
