Complete DSMLink Walkthrough

Ok, I've done a bit of searching, and yes I know that I need a little under $1000 for a DSMLink setup for my 1997 GSX. I can't seem to find everything on a single thread, and thought it would be a decent idea if it was all put down in one area, for myself and future users. If someone could kindly put everything from exactly what is needed, and for what, an aproximate price range, setting up, and then finally, tuning. I would post what I have found, but I would rather have people who actually have done this themselves. Thanks a bunch guys. And this thread may need to be moved also, sorry if so.

All you HAVE to have is an EPROM ECU($150-$225ish)... it will need to be socketed($1 for the socket and prolly about $25-$40 to have someone remove the chip from the board and solder the socket in its place). Then, you will need the DSMLink... it comes with the chip, cable, and software(which is also available to be downloaded on their website). Check their site... I know they offer the socketing service, as well...

As far as tuning, I would suggest getting a wideband and doing a lot of reading if you arent familiar with tuning. DSMLink also has a .pdf users guide that will help you out getting started.

Re: Complete DSMLink Walkthrough

Also, there isnt much that is needed other than money and an EEPROM ECU, either from a 1g for a 1g or from a '95 for a 2g. There isnt much to what is needed. Once you pick it up, you get access to DSMLink forums so all the tuning info you need is available there.

Re: Complete DSMLink Walkthrough

Just to be certain, 2g's MUST have a an ECU from a 95 turbo model, and 1g's can be from any year, correct?

I think they only reason they say 95 is because that is the only year that the 2gs had EPROM ECUs. It was pretty much random selection with the 1gs... I think they covered their eyes and pointed to the cars that would have EPROMs or when the car came up on the assembly line, they drew the type of ECU they would install in it out of a hat.

Re: Complete DSMLink Walkthrough

As far as the 2g's go you MUST have a 95' eprom ecu to socket in the new chip. You will also need a laptop that has the minimum requirements needed to run the software (requirements can be found on dsmlink website). I picked a cheap laptop up from ebay for about a $100, dsmlink $550, socket job $20-40, eprom ecu $150-200. As far as information goes you can download the tuning guide from dsmlink website, this will get your basic tuning down, but the real "good" information is going to be through DSMLinks private forums. There are a lot of good tips, and useful information that can be found there. Everyone is very helpful on those boards as well.

No. 1gs use 1g computers, 2gs use 2g computers.

You would need a 1g Turbo Eprom ECU. FWD, AWD, Auto, doesn't matter, but 1g, turbo, eprom are the must haves.

Re: Complete DSMLink Walkthrough

If you have more than 1 dsm can you use dsmlink on each one with only having to get another ecu?
