Over 30 Years of Expertise
Founded in 1991 by a group of passionate engineers, Link Engine Management, or rather Link Electrosystems Limited back then, quickly made a name for itself with their first ECU, the EMX. Completely assembled by hand, this unit allowed to simply control the fuel and ignition of engines with electronic fuel injection. In 1995, the LEM of the new G1 series was released, a great lineage that has evolved over the years to arrive at the G4X range, which is as powerful as it is diversified, launched in 2019. Involved in motorsports for decades, Link is the official partner of many major competitions and supports talented drivers, such as in drifting with the Shanahan brothers, Matt Field, Duane McKeever, Naoki Nakamura or Daigo Saito, among others.
