Hi guys galls
Looking for some feedback if other people have gone from a pfc to link g4+ and remapped and boost solenoid


if it made a difference and was worth spending the money on new ecu and remap etc or spending elsewhere ????

I’ve been reading up and can’t find my answers and now unsure ,cos of scatter this that etc

I***8217;d say it would run more efficiently and safely whilst extracting a few extra ponies (maybe).

At the moment your car is running a processor that***8217;s 20years old.

Thanks for reply

I know the pfc can handle more last year I got rebuilt steel tubs all fuelling hard pipes thicker head gasket,head bolts and all other gaskets changed coil packs plugs Nismo mafs etc etc

Car feels faster but don’t get a kick from it if ya get me tuner said with the link and boost solenoid it will bring them in together and give what I need more tuneable,
just unsure after spending all that money and feeling the same as stock ( might just be delivering power @ same curve etc but more boost up top)

if it’s worth say doing things to bottom end for more boost and a remap on pfc than maybe wasting on new ecu decisions decisions

I recently changed from power fc to link and was worth every penny! Went from 520 at the fly to 540 at the wheels with same boost pressure! So much quicker! Main reason i went for link was the knock protection and logging. If i go out for a drive i can quickly download the logs and see what***8217;s going on. As for scatter that is a problem with the link but you can get an aem trigger disc for the cas which will clean the signal up and is only about £30. I also now have a tablet dash display where i can see any parameter i want without having gauges all over the dash.

I’d advise to do the bottom end and stick with the pfc unless you can afford both!

It is worth it but it’s down to your financial judgment!

Good luck.

Eveything is the same. Just fitted a link, wideband and boost solenoid. I’m also running on stock bottom end

Cheers lee I’ll go with the ECU disk and boost solenoid 1st see how it is and if I have to do bottom end I’ll look into it ***128077;***127995;***128077;***127995;***128077;***127995;

What setup do you have I you don't mind me asking? Those are awesome gains! I'm thinking about switching to Link from PFC on my 2.8 with -5's

Yeah sure, no problem

Running -9 garretts (basically gtss), type b poncams, 750cc injectors, tomei fuel pump, nz wiring cas replacement kit, hpi turbo elbows, port matched manifolds and all other small supporting mods

So nothing crazy to be honest. Still on stock bottom end and head apart from the cams. Pulls like a train to redline every time!

I would definitely recommend the link over power fc, worth the money all day long!

Thanx Lee,

That would be a great street setup for sure! nice and responsive too. Is that on pump fuel or E85?

I think changing from PFC to Link G4 and going from 98RON to E85 will do wonders for my build.

It is a good street set up for sure, full boost by about 4.1k and holds 1.3bar all the way to limiter.

Don’t run E85 unfortunately, harder to get here in the UK. I am using 99 ron shell v power.

Getting a crank trigger kit is an absolute must if you're going to upgrade to Link.

I was running the stock CAS on my Link for a quite a while and decided to upgrade to the PRP trigger kit. Probably one of the best upgrades you can do, much smoother and pulls loads harder throughout the rev range.

-9's have great potential too. Ive got a friend here with a RB28, Vcam, -9 & E85 build that also want to go to a Link G4 from PFC. Although that car is already crazy responsive.

Yeah the trigger kits are needed on most newer ECU's as you get a bit of scramble in signal over 6500rpm with the stock CAS. Im hoping Herman, from PRP, makes a trigger kit that will fit into the stock CAS housing for a more OEM look.
