Smile Value of Link ECU?

Hi,

I've acquired an Link ECU, and really have no desire to figure out the whole setup since i'm working way too much over the summer. I haven't even gotten a chance to bench test it or try to throw it in my '94 Miata.
My thoughts are that get rid of it, it is complete minus the keypad, but It would be possible for me to fab one up to sell it as a "Complete kit". I've included pictures as well. I know there aren't many around/left that work. Let me know your thoughts!
I would rather have it go to someone who is in dire need of a replacement, and will actually utilize it. I would be willing to take calls or texts if there is interest in it.

- Miata Link
-Serial Link
- Link ECU
- Knock Sensor
- Air Temperature Sensor
-Half built display
- Manual

are you trying to sell it or ask how much it's worth?
I hope you're not trying to skirt the FS section rules, because you're gonna have a bad day.

It's not worth a whole lot these days. It's got less functionality than a cheap megasquirt, and it's old, so the capacitors on them are often drying out and going bad. It's worth even less if you don't have the keypad to go with it, because it's pretty hard to set up without that (I think it *can* be done if you have a serialLink adapter, but I'm not sure).

A museum might take it as a display piece.

You should find out what year it's for.

It's not a complete kit without that keypad. Programming it via serial cable is possible, but it's a huge pain. The keypads are like 200 bucks but there are schematics for them if you're good with that sort of thing.

Before the MS PNP came along, the Link occupied that market niche. Since an MS PNP2 retails for around 800, you could probably sell an old Link for 4-500 since it's a lot better than having nothing at all but it's pretty limited by modern standards.

RPM safely goes up to 7500 and boost can go safely up to 18 psi. The boost control works great. The ecu has various auto-tuning modes if you have a wideband. It's not a horrible ECU, it's just horribly bad compared to modern ones.

Fwiw- I bought a 1.6 90-93 Miatalink (FM software) with serial link and keypad ~5 years ago for $125 off local Miata forum.
