How do I load the Evo octane tables into ecmlink? I've read the wikis and I simply do not understand. It says file open, but I don't see no direct access tab. It's just saved logs and nothing else. Tried to open the file on different computers and some coding comes up. What am I missing here?

You download the file just as you would any other file.

You need to use the ECMlink software application to open/view the file. To actually replace them, your laptop/ECMlink need to be connected to your car in order to access your car's DA tables, and swap them with your downloaded ones.

sorry for reviving a 2 yr old thread but figured id post how I figured this out.
1 open your cars direct access tables.
2 go to the downloaded stock evo 8 table file right click open, this will open a new tab in ecmlink showing the openloopmaxoct/minoct and timingmaxoct/timingmin tables you just downloaded. Right click on the first downloaded table and click "copy table"
3 go to your cars openloopmax table and right click "paste table" and this will replace your stock 2g numbers with the stock evo map you just copied.
now do this for openloopmin and timingmax/timingmin, WITH THE ENGINE OFF KEY ON click "save all to ecu" and if done properly you will get a pop up that says your making changes to the internal code of your ecu. Click "ok" or yes, and the files will start to flash to your ecu. You will notice that your check engine light flashes while the new numbers are being saved to the ecu.
I had no ill effects using these maps. Some fuel adjustments had to me made but all is well 2 months in daily driving after doing this. Good luck!
