I have nothing in mind, just interested if anybody is thinking about Tuning and the engine involved.
On a German CX-5 Forum there is a Thread about Tuning in general. It seems to be possible to Tune the Gas-pedal to.

Seems like the gasoline engine is almost the same as the one in Mazda3. With that said, the Mazda3 Skyactive-G 2.0 (120 & 165hp) engine can be tweeked up-to 180hp (or even more).

The Diesel-variant will almost certainly have a chip in the near future cause it's powered with a turbo.

Just guessing of course :nerd:

Where are you that you are privileged to have a 165hp 3?

Just read that the CX-3 G-120 Petrol engine is (about?) the same as the Skyactiv G-165. It's most likely Tuned 'down' to 120 (HP) by Motronic. Therefore, imo it be possible to get it 'up' again ;-)

I know that I am getting one of Orange Virus's handheld tuners for the Skyactiv 2.0 as soon as I can afford it. The gains they make will put a 2.0 on par with a 2.5 and actually slightly better.

Now if they just took PayPal Credit...

Orange Virus has switched to just Toyotas with legacy support for their Mazda clients. No new Mazda clients, though.

Both Fab9 and Openflash Performance have tuning options for the ND MX-5. Since that uses the SkyActiv-G 1.5L and 2.0L motors (pretty much the same as the CX-3), they may be willing to do a custom remote tune.
