I'm in LA but have setup an aftermarket ECU on an S38 before. What's your issue ?

Link's site says they have base start up maps available for most engine configurations. I would think that one of their base 6 cylinder maps for a 3-4 liter engine should be enough to get yours up and running and a good starting point for tuning. Every aftermarket ECU has their own unique map storage file type so a MoteC, AEM, MS etc file will not do you any good you would need to decipher the map and convert it to something in LINK's language.

What are your problems? I have done a number of aftermarket ECU installations and could probably help you with general information but nothing specific to the LINK system.
