2010 MAZDASPEED3 AccessPORT Available Now!
Posted on 09 February 2011
COBB Tuning is proud to announce the release of the AccessPORT for the 2010 “Generation 2” MAZDASPEED3. This long awaited release brings the easy-to-use and impressively powerful tuning solution that first generation MAZDASPEED3 AccessPORT users have come to know and love, to the newest generation of MAZDASPEED3 drivers! This release also adds 2010 MS3 support to all existing AP-MAZ-002 AccessPORTs through a simple firmware upgrade.
Plug-and-Play, Push-Button Tuning
The AccessPORT is the premier plug-and-play, push-button tuning solution for MAZDASPEED3 enthusiasts. The AccessPORT requires no wiring, cutting, soldering or any other modification to be installed on your car. Simply plug the AccessPORT into your vehicle’s OBD-II port, hit the install button and instantly enjoy tremendous power gains with factory smooth driving quality.
The AccessPORT lets you quickly reprogram your car’s ECU with performance-tuned calibrations for instant power gains. Reprogramming the ECU unlocks hidden power while retaining the sophisticated control logic and refined engine response developed by MAZDASPEED engineers.
The AccessPORT puts control in the hands of the enthusiast. Install the AccessPORT at your convenience in minutes from the comfort of your driver’s seat. The AccessPORT is able to store multiple calibrations, making map switching easy with just the touch of a button in under a minute. Choose from many pre-tuned maps for different levels of modifications and types of fuels and be ready for any situation. For extreme modifications or maximum power output, our ProTuner network can custom tune your setup on a dyno using our AccessTUNER Pro tuning software.
Flashing the ECU for increased performance is just the start of what the AccessPORT is capable of. Set the AccessPORT to Performance Mode to capture 0-60MPH times, ¼ Mile times and Trap Speeds. Switch over to Live Data and choose a gauge to monitor. Select the integrated Data Logging function to record multiple channels of data for up to 10 hours for in-depth performance analysis. Go to Troubleshooting mode to diagnose issues by reading trouble codes and resetting the system once the issues have been resolved. Users can even configure the AccessPORT as a shift light that flashes the screen at whatever RPM you choose.
The AccessPORT can even eliminate separation anxiety for those times you are away from your car. Protect your investment when out on the town by quickly loading the Valet map to limit engine revs and boost. And when it’s necessary to remove the AccessPORT, the uninstall process is simple, taking under 10 minutes and restoring the ECU to its original condition. The AccessPORT can be installed and uninstalled as many times as needed without fuss or hassle.
User Tested and Approved
The MAZDASPEED community has had an extensive role in testing the AccessPORT for the 2nd Gen MS3 with Alpha testers from all over the country testing the AccessPORT with a variety of calibrations and vehicle configurations. This testing data has had a huge impact on the final release versions of the AccessPORT and Off The Shelf calibrations for the Gen 2 MS3! It is this extensive testing that allows COBB Tuning to bring the AccessPORT to market with a wide array of maps for the most common modifications.
For this initial release, COBB Tuning will be offering Stage1 maps only. This is due to different tuning strategies employed by the new 2nd Gen ECU. While the first generation MS3 was able to handle most calibrations up to Stage2 with a stock Crank Driven Fuel Pump (CDFP), the Gen2 MS3 requires an upgraded fuel pump for all calibrations beyond Stage1. As enthusiasts push their vehicles beyond this initial stepping stone, COBB Tuning will release more maps for those users who wish to take their vehicles to Stage2 and beyond!

Boost Tuning (BT) Logic
Based on customer demand, all off the shelf maps are based on COBB Tuning’s implementation of Boost Tuning logic rather than the factory Load-Based logic. This allows the MAZDASPEED3 to reach target boost with much more consistency than the factory logic. This also enables tighter control of fuel demand and keeps the tune within the limitations of the stock CDFP fuel capacity as well as allows for more powerful Stage1 tunes for users with upgraded CDFPs.
For those users with existing AP-MAZ-002 AccessPORTs, you can now use this unit on your 2010 MAZDASPEED3. Just update to the latest firmware release with AccessPORT Manager 2.0 and your AccessPORT is 2010 MAZDASPEED3 ready!
