Well if you haven't seen the news, Ecmlink is currently no longer selling it as they had an issue with their last batch of chips.

That said if you can find it used, you just need the ecu, ecmlink chip and the v3 cable.

Although dsmlink is my favourite for tuning link, I have tuned MANY HIGH HP AEM, Haltech, LinkECU, DSMs.

These are probably some of the fastest ones in Canada at the moment.

I am a Canadian Authorized dealer for G4 LinkECU if your interested, pricing is very reasonable similar to dsmlink smile
Send me a pm if interested, I can get ANY standalone for DSMs.

DSMLink guys are working on a replacement though and it looks like they are almost there.

Although if I was in your position I would probably be looking at standalone. As mention LinkECU is around the same price as DSMLink and is full standalone, and plug and play as well.

They are making what they have in hand work, it's still V3. V4 will be all new hardware.
