    pretty sure you just use the dsm eprom unit in the evo if you want an evo 8/9 on link......not unheard of

    Really? The pinouts are different on the evo 7-9 ecu's hence why we can't just drop the flashable evo ecu into our cars. You have to make a patch harness. So I can't see how you could use a DSM eeprom ecu in the evo without the same thing.

    So again I wonder why go through that hassle when the evo flash rom defenitions are so well developed? Is there really that many more features on DSMLink? Looking through the options I don't see where that's the case. Its just way easier to use with good support and software interface. Which I understand makes it worth it for many.

    That is exactly why, there is a plug and play harness available. Ecmlink is so user friendly and I have been using it for years with good results. It’s my prefrence, ive never used evoscan, and already have my v3 and ecu so, plug and play harness and go!

    Ah that makes total sense. I didn't realize someone was selling the patch harness already done. That makes it way easier.

    As someone who uses evoscan I can tell you it will get the job done but leaves a lot to be desired compared to other tuning platforms I have used. Definitely not refined.

    Ecmlink may be making patch harnesses, I didn't see them in my research, but there are places that make them, as well as patch harnesses to go from 1g/2g harnesses to h8 ecus. Problem is they're all expensive, when I was doing the Evo8 ecu in mine, I just made a jumper and it cost significantly less than buying one.

    I believe @twdorris was using ecmlink in his Evo as well at some point, said it ran better than the stock ecu (tho I assume there was some creative adjustments made).
