Default Upgrade from a Link but....

So the time has come to say goodbye to my Link I think. It just bores me now and I'm looking for something new. I have the Link tuned in nice and have for the past 4 years. Only maintenance needed is touching up the motherboard at the power regulators and yearly fix the temp sensor. I'm really thinking about going with a MS3. I have excellent soldering skills so building it will be not problem. I'm a little concerned about timing curve without a knock sensor. I have a 99' 1.6L head with solid lifters (yes it exist) and WebCams 50 thousandths extra lift and shorter duration cams. So I cant use a base map. Has anyone ever been able to take the timing curve from a Link and transcribe it to MS?

Thanks guys

If I remember correctly, there was a way to translate the link timing map to a real timing map. I think the numbers in the timing map can be translated into degrees of advance if you divide by 4. Of course if I also remember correctly the Link has only 3 rows on the load axis, where the MS3 has 16.

BTW, MS3 does accept knock sensor input, and there's some awesome knock code improvements in the pipeline.
