Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

Just when the old school people that know speed density is free are mostly out of the DSM scene, someone else put together a product to sell to the newbies, first is maft-pro, then dsmlink... very interesting

Switchable maps sounds intriguing for the people with access to E85.

How hard is it to run two configurations now?

Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

the fact that it doesn't require nearly the know how and tedium of things like dsmap or custom eproms have nothing to do with it right

yeah it's more expensive, but one of the things when you get something like ECMLink/AEM/etc is support, along with all the people who participate in sharing what they know.

Sure there are cheaper options, but they're a hell of a lot more work too.

Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

I guess it's just easy to make money off of people who want the easy way out, who never search, or people who just doesn't like to experiment.

Support? The first crack of multiple maps/prom, speed density, and ECU codes/address are done by couple of the members here, these people are never known to the newer kids, all they knew are the common name brands. I am sure if you want to do any of the said above, all you have to do is ask the old time members here. It's not any harder then installing the DSMLinks per se, I wouldn't call it tedious at all.

Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

I don't consider myself a newbie by any means. I've been watching the development for the last 3+ years and will be purchasing it. You're right, I don't the time or patience to run the other systems. The support I have gotten with DSMlink v2.5 is outstanding. This is my hobby, not my life.

Thanks

Tedious install?

Does this new SD DSMlink somehow install on your latop then the laptop sprouts hands and connects the 5 wires , vacume line, and air temp sensor hole for you?

I can't see how the installation for SD DSMlink is any bit different than SD DS-Map.

Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

Looks like everytime I say anything there will be someone seems to get offended. I wasn't pointing finger at anyone particular, also I didn't mean newbie in a bad way, just can't find another word for it. I am definitely a newbie.

My point is, all these threads about maft-pro or dsmlinks, there are a LOT of replies on various forums like on tooners that made it sound like it is a sophisticated and brand new product that why no one have ever thought of before. I just think it is very interesting, especially the people who paved the road always get forgotten. I jus have much respect for the people who designed all these inthe first place when there is zero.

I will shut up now, carry on.

+1. I'll be buying it shortly for the same reasons as Clint.

It's very simple. You tune with one fuel, get it set up, and save it all to an ecu config file. You can load it at any time with a couple of clicks on your touchpad. You can tune on E85 and do the same thing. You can have as many different config files as your laptop will store, so it's not just two configurations.. it's thousands. It's nice for us Mitsu owners to finally have something on par with Neptune or HonData. I know there are other ways to do things, but i'd rather put my stock into something that has some devoted years of R&D into it, and not some hack and slash mod like a VPC or other such piggy back nonsense. I'd also much rather be using a product that has a wide user base, and a wealth of information out there, as opposed to something like DS-Map which has what looks like a fly-by-night website and a forum reminiscent of a teen chat room.

Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

See thats the thing though DS-MAP may not be ran by such a large company as the makers of ECMlink, but the code has been being used for years and been slowly improved over the years converting over to a more user friendly approach. Also the software itself is free yeah you have to make 5 post to get the software, but thats not a big deal. Instead of having to go out and spend 500+ you can go out and get an AIT, 3 BAR MAP sensor, an ostrich or burn your own chips, and a wideband and you are good to go. Everyone will have their favorite though.

Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

I have ds-map, and have used tuner pro to burn chips for a mas, and maf-t based setups. I have also been in link cars and seen how easy they are to tune. Saying that ds-map is better is like saying everyone in america should have aem ems in their daily driver. Everyone who mods a dsm doesn't want to learn how to setup a pretty much stand alone setup, or learn how to run an ostrich, or burn chips. I myself love to tinker with computers and cars so i love complete control over my ecu. That isn't for everyone. I don't really get why everyone in the dsm crowd is so into what everyone else is doing with their car. People with hack job cars on jackstands trying to tell people with 600 horsepower cars how to build it is funny as heck. I love my gvr4 and dsm's, but i guess this is the crowd you get with a $1,000 buy in.

Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

Ok, its been released. Anyone running speed density on ECMlink yet?
I finally have everything I need to run it on the 4g Mirage hatch.

^^ 4 local DSM folks have received the SW and are awaiting various probes. All plan to use SD with 2 pumping E85.
Will update as they do...

Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

I will be converting over to v3 in the next few weeks. I am first going to dyno my car on v2.5 with the tune I have a 32psi. I will then switch to v3 and retune the car. Once I have the tune back where I want it I will again put the car on the dyno at 32psi still using the gm maf. Then its SD time and a retune and back on the dyno to see if the car picks up hp from going from v2.5 to v3 to v3SD.

Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

I doubt you'll really see any HP gain from 2.5 to v3, but who knows.

I've had v3 since the DSMshootout... I'm going to give SD another shot today I think. I was beta testing it but other issues made me had to stop for the time.

Re: DsmLink upgrades coming soon. Speed Density

I wouldn't think you'd get much peak hp difference since most people tune timing sliders to their highest boost level. You probably will get a better over-all tune though, primarily because of the full 2-D timing array.
