thats really to bad and I hope that is not the case, I have used ecmlink since it was still called dsmlink. It is a fantastic program and software. I really hope something can be done because I dont really want to go full stand alone ecu but if I have to I will. My other option is swapping in a 2g ecu but again not really something I want to do.

I had stuff all experience with wiring, soldering or pinouts prior to swapping out to an E6 ecu. Took me all of maybe 2 hrs for a completed job with everything working well.
Worth it, in my opinion at least.

Yeah, sorry, we've STILL not done anything on the full version for EVO1-3 ECUs.  Part of the problem, of course, is market size but that's not a big issue.  The biggest is that the EVO1-3 ECU is really *very* limited in I/O.  It's even worse than the 1G DSMs, which are seriously limited as well.  Porting full ECMLink to the EVO1-3 ECU is just hard to justify on those grounds alone.  I guess the stuff like expanded fuel and timing limits and boost control and ethanol sensor support...yeah, I guess that all makes sense.  But the biggest limitation people run into with ECMLink is the lack of logging inputs and the EVO1-3 ECU is the worst of the worst on that front.

 

Still...I guess I listed enough stuff above that would be a net win in having full anyway even without more logging inputs.  You can still run SD and use programmable outputs for whatever and run an ethanol sensor, etc.  I guess it makes sense but then I haven'd had time to release any big updates to our main DSM product in a few years much less switch over to debugging a different platform again.  And the last (small) update I did do for ECMLink ended up being a debugging nightmare because each version (1G, 2G, lite, full, Evo1-3) had a few little unique quirks that I didn't catch in testing.  So the thought of trying to port a big batch of code over to a different ECU does scare me a bit.
