-The core piece of ECMLink is a flash module plug-in that goes into place of a stock EPROM chip.  To use ECMLink, your ECU needs to have an [[http://​www.dsmlink.com/​images/​photos/​inside1geprom.jpg|EPROM chip inside]] so that we can remove that chip, [[http://​www.dsmlink.com/​images/​forums/​ecudocs/​withsocket.jpg|install a socket]] and then install our V3 flash module into this socket. 
  
-Unfortunately,​ there were **no** 1997 DSM ECUs produced from the factory as EPROM ECUs (other than a couple rare engineering samples that slipped out).  So in order to run ECMLink in a 1997 DSM, you have to either replace the ECU with an EPROM 2G ECU (1995 being the only option) or you need to have your 1997 ECU converted from non-EPROM to EPROM.+

 If you already have a 1995 EPROM ECU available to you, then that's going to be the cheapest route and, really, won't be any different than running a 1997 ECU once you swap the plug wires around (more on that below). If you already have a 1995 EPROM ECU available to you, then that's going to be the cheapest route and, really, won't be any different than running a 1997 ECU once you swap the plug wires around (more on that below).
