The "basemap" given in that thread is set up for 1000cc injectors and for a FI case. Also uses the lame time-based AE and open loop idle control but I digress. It would be cool to see the main pros and cons between the two platforms. I for one just like TunerStudio right off the bat with the simple menu layout and UI design. I hate the PCLink "file directory" style of navigating through settings and everything feels clunky but that's just me. I think the Link offers more I/O pins though so that's a plus for it already. Once I get my hands on a 2GR-FE, modify my MS3X for it, and get it running, I'll be sure to post the map that I used to get it started and running. Along with the other steps I had to take and stuff.So now we have both Link and MS3 base maps. Maybe someone could do a side-by-side comparison of PCLink and Tuner Studio for 2GR, with regard to configuration and set-up, features, ease of use, ease of making changes, "intuitiveness," et cetera. Both apps are available free. Unrelated: this is an image I adapted to give an idea of the relative merits of standalone versus OEM ECU.

Note: OEM may also have hidden dials, locked dials, mislabeled dials, linked dials, and so on.
Here's my take on OEM vs Standalone
