    How to enable launch control?

    Its under Motorsport > Launch control on the PClink software

    Basemap?

    I think this might be the only solution, cannot find any MAF calibration figures for voltage vs g/s anywhere - although I do have an airflow curve from the PFC. Will save up for the MAP sensor - ECU and wiring so far have cost twice the cost of the car.

    Basemap?

    Slight update on this, have been sent over a basemap to try and get the car fired up - still no luck, have tried to adjust the master fuel trim both plus and minus 10% to see if its that, it does almost fire, eg it catches for 1 rev but at the moment my Link ECU is pretty much a very heavy paperweight. Have swapped back to my PFC/stock ECU for the time being - have checked all the settings vs the help sheet and everything matches up, have tried both trigger types so I am now at a loss. Worth noting that I have had this ECU for 6 months so far and can't get it to work guessing it might be something to do with currently running the stock MAF and not a MAP sensor - will try and see if I can find if that's been setup etc. Edit - looks like its been set to run a 3 bar MAP sensor, need to try and figure out the voltages for the stock MAF

    new Aem x series wideband

    Try a different earth point.

    Basemap?

    Will do, I did swap to the other trigger type as well - will get it logged, also noticed that the fuel setup wasn't set to a return less system when I initially tried it - would this make a difference?

    Basemap?

    Still having issues trying to get the car to fire, have followed the guide in PC link but so far nothing, think I will just put the ECU on the shelf until I can figure out how to get the car to run on it.

    Wideband - do I need to go CANBUS?

    Thanks for that, I have a pin kit A and B so I should be able to grab some of the pins from those to add a few more pins into the PnP harness - will look into how to fit the pins etc, still not sure if I will be running more than one CAN bus, but I guess I could wire it into the plug now and then change it out if needed later.

    Wideband - do I need to go CANBUS?

    Thanks for that, I noticed on the wiring diagram that there was the provision for a CAN input on connector B, will look to add in the wires from the gauge. Do you know where I could get a CAN F connector from if I wanted to connect it up rather than hard wiring? Is there an off the shelf name for the type of connector? I guess I could put in a connector between the AEM wiring and the ECU though if wiring it directly into the B connector. Guessing its this that I need - it can't be Link specific though can it? http://dealers.linkecu.com/CANF_2

    Wideband - do I need to go CANBUS?

    Hi all, I have an AEM X series wideband gauge with the latest Bosch 4.9LSU sensor, the gauge itself has output for 0-5v, RS232 and AEMnet (CANbus), I am just wondering how best to wire the wideband signal in, currently using a PnP harness for my car as I am using my Link Xtreme in a piggyback setup. Would I need to add the 0-5V signal to a pin in the current harness? I notice that there is a LinkCAN accessory which seems to come with a sensor that I don't need - is there any way of simply buying the adaptor between the 2 which I am guessing plugs into the CANport on the ECU? Or can I simply add a connector onto the respective wires coming from the AEM gauge to then connect to the CANport on the ECU?

    EML legal requirement for MOTs from mid May

    Looks like the EML does come on then go off when you put the key in using the PnP harness I have - still having issues trying to get a basemap sorted on it, have followed the guide in the PClink to setup for the 1zz engine but not got it to fire yet

    EML legal requirement for MOTs from mid May

    Thank you, I will check to see if my Link ECU does fire the EML or not - I am using a Boomsland plug and play harness so they might have already done this to ensure all OEM dash functions work. Apologies if I sounded a bit blunt in my initial post, having invested in the Link ECU I didn't want it to cause issues with the road worthiness of the car as the project car is a road car rather than a track only car.

    EML legal requirement for MOTs from mid May

    Thanks for that, the issue being is that my Link Xtreme needs to be wired into the car in a piggyback fashion and I need to retain the stock ECU for some function - I don't think that this setting will work on mine.

    EML legal requirement for MOTs from mid May

    Are you able to let me know the settings for this?
  14. Hi there, Just wanted to check something, in May the UK MOT is changing with various updates to how the advisories and fails are now classified, its mainly a clamp down on those who try and gut the DPF filters for diesels but I also notice that the EML is also part of the MOT. Basically, the EML has to come on with the key on, then go off to show no faults stored - failure to do so results in a major advisory and a fail. I haven't yet installed my Link Xtreme, however I believe I am right in saying that the EML isn't used at all with the ECU meaning that running this ECU will mean that the vehicle will fail its MOT - basically meaning running a Link in the UK on the road becomes illegal as it classes the car as unroadworthy. Just wanted to check if I am correct regarding the EML on the Link ECU and how this could be mitigated if it is the case - having spent a fair amount on getting a Link Xtreme and sorting out the wiring harness for it to becomes useless is rather disappointing.
  15. Hi all, Just in the process of building my 1zz turbo engine, planning to run the engine NA for a bit before bolting on a turbo - will be looking to get it mapped when I fit the turbo so I am looking for a mapper in the Bedfordshire area when the time comes to get it mapped properly.
