I am currently running this kit on my car, it is by far the best and most economical kit availabl! We finally have the option to get rid of the oem ecu and still have full oem functionality

that is good to know and the pricing doesnt seem too bad for what you are getting. i knew they were working on something, but i didnt know they released it.

That’s pretty bad ass. I read the description, and it states a “check engine light” function...does that mean it’s OBD2 compatible? My infinity can have a cel output but it’s not OBD2 by any means. If the Link speaks obd, then it will be a good choice for folks that live in states requiring emissions checks. Also, I didn’t see if traction control is supported. I’d assume yes, since it sounds like the Link does DBW, and the traction control torque reduction is via DBW.

Unfortunately doesn’t support obd2 but the CEL light can be used for a multitude of things depending on what parameters you set for it. Yes it’s capable of traction control but I don’t have mine setup. You can run your cruise control with it as well. I currently use the cruise control switch to arm my anti lag

Still pretty cool and no wiring nightmares. Definitely would consider if I wasn’t already on standalone.

Ya it’s the extreme with a panic wire jumper harness making it plug and play. It also comes with the maf subharness that you use for the iat sensor. It all works good and is super simple

Did the OEM gauges work out of the box, or did you have to program that in?

We're using this setup on my friend's 1jz swapped drift car and it works great. Alot of nice features and very stealth. It comes in the stock ecu casing and fits into the stock ecu box. Has a built in MAP sensor and completely eliminates the stock ecu.

It also works with the stock muliplex system so a/c, fan relays and gauges all work. You can even program each indicator light on your cluster to do whatever you want. For example you can turn your CEL into a shift light if you wanted to.

Great standalone for the price, and has alot of nice features. Only downside is that it only works for manual transmission, so if you have a auto transmission you're out of luck. I'd say this is probably the best standalone for the IS300 just because you can completely eliminate the stock ecu.

Do you mind sharing the manual?

How does it do CAN to MPX? The Link Altezza plugin has a CAN to MPX convertor on the logic board itself. Is it using the same board but different IO?

If there a AUX connector for unused IO? 2nd CAN?

Would really like to see the IO assignment.


Edit, did some digging. Looks like it IS the Altezza PnP but with a patch loom and reassigned IO in the Link..
Interesting..

Yes, no automatic transmission solution available with Link to my knowledge.
