Yup. Don't have the boost control setup yet. Still coarse tuning, but WOW does it rock. Car is 100X smoother than the AFPR/EMB setup.

I am, but I'm running it on duty cycle percentages rather than boost target.

What problem are you having? When did you purchase the link? I haven't spent a lot of time with mine (checking the wiring ... etc) but I haven't been able to get it to do squat. I'm hoping it is wiring or that I'm using the wrong ports on the solenoid.

I'm looking into a possible grounding issue. I started by testing to see of the solenoid work by hooking it up to a 12v source. it seemed to work so I think my problem may be the a ground or the link itself.

Can't what to dyno it to see how much more hp it's running since last time. it's nice to here the wheels chirp in 3rd gear. Any ways just though I'd share my excitement.

Haven't spent any time with it yet. Hope to over the weekend. I just loath the thought of tearing into the wiring again.

Yeah, I'm curious as well. If the solenoid and the Link ECU art both working, then they should get some kind of response by using either boost target or duty cycle settings using the EBC built into the link.

I went with duty cycle percentages because I ran out of patience with getting a steady boost curve using the boost target method. In both cases though, I was able to raise and lower boost successfully using the Link ECU.

It does nothing. Seem like the link isn't activating the solenoid at all. Next step is to go back to the wiring and confirm that it is done correctly and that no wires have come loose. If it looks good I'll replace the solenoid with a test lamp.

I used duty cycle as well because I couldn't get a good boost curve nailed down with the EBC. I thought everything was fine until the day I jumped on the dyno and ran 18-19 psi on my little T25 (it was always 14-15 on the street during testing). After that it was back to letting the Link handle everything. It isn't as pretty but it is consistant.
