Stage 1 (
90 BHP |
Our stage 1 remap is designed to run on a standard vehicle without needing any upgrades. The 1.4 CD has a small but very responsive turbo charger and is not fitted with an intercooler. This means it’s important to adjust power (fuelling) to stay well within safe and clean air fuel ratios but we can also get quite a big gain thanks to the extra air available.
As the Mazda 2 is both small and very light, you will be surprised at the extra power and how it feels like a new car. The remap is designed to protect your clutch and will not over stress it, with that said it is important that the clutch is in full working order and not excessively worn.
The power curve will be continuous and will not drop off like the stock mapping, this means you have a longer usable rev range when you need it for over taking manoeuvres.
On the 1.4 68 BHP we skip the stage 2 step as the KP35 turbo is very small and we wouldn’t want to over stress it.
Stage 3 (
110 to 120 BHP |
230 to 250 Nm)
For the HDI tuning stage 3 upgrade we need to fit the TD02 turbo charger from the 1.6 90 BHP model (from 2010 models onwards). This is not such a straightforward upgrade but it’s worth the extra work, it also bolts on to the manifold, although if you use the entire manifold from the 1.6 this will flow better and matches the exhaust ports of the 1.4/1.6 engine exactly.
You will need to swap the actuator for a pressure actuator, this can be controlled by drilling/tapping a pressure feed into the side of the compressor just like the stock turbo.
Next you must fit a front mounted intercooler, a boost gauge, full exhaust system and a ceramic paddle clutch to handle all that extra torque.
(Another good option is to use a GTD1244VZ turbo from the 1.6 BlueHDI 120, the VNT can be regulated using an external controller called Digibooster-S. This turbo will deliver much better low down boost and also some more top end boost.)

Programming Methods – OBD2
The Siemens SID804 and 806 ECUs are all of similar architecture and have a 512KB flash memory containing the performance maps. Not many tools offer great support for these less common ECUs.
You can program the ECU yourself using our online remapping service. A great tool to use on the Ford Siemens ECUs is called I O Terminal which is designed specifically for the SID branch of ECUs. You can also use the Kess V2 tool or the latest version of MPPS to program over OBD, although some models will require a full ‘boot mode’ read on the bench such as SID806. We do not work with virtual reads, as these can cause problems due to the different line swapping formats that can be available.
If you prefer to send the ECU to us for the programming work, you can use our postal remap service.
Programming via OBD SID206
- Obtain a suitable programming tool, we recommend I O Terminal with the Siemens module. or Kess KTAG, BDM100 etc.
- Install the tool to a reliable laptop.
- Connect to the OBD port of your car, make sure you have backup chargers to the vehicle battery and the laptop battery.
- ID the ECU and then take a read of the ECUs flash memory.
- Email the software to email@example.com along with a description of the remap you require.
- Send payment through our webshop.
- We will modify the software and send back to you. This normally takes less than 2 to 3 hours during working days.
- Using the same tool, ID then write to the ECU. This will overwrite the ECUs flash memory, it’s important not to interrupt the process. If you encounter any problems we can fix the ECU for you so there’s absolutely nothing to worry about.
- Let your engine warm up and then take the car for a spin, enjoy the extra power!
