Cr. lk being changed to one frame is pretty hard to get used to and I’m still practicing to get 3 cr lk -> EX GH at 95%.
However, I thought I would share what I found as a good intermediate step to the 3 lks BnB, and a great tournament substitute if you fear dropping a link.
I realized that after a jump in splash or knees it feels much easier to start the combo with a cr jab and follow with a cr lk and then a st lk. The cr jab is great because the timing for the first lk off of the splash vs off of the knees is slightly different (as if 1 frame follow ups were not hard enough). I recommend starting with jab to make all of your combo timing more fluid as it is easier to combo lk off of cr jab and cr jab tends to give you momentum going into the combo. Also, finishing with a standing lk gives the new 1 frame link much needed rhythm and is already part of the buffer for the EX GH cancel.
I know this is relatively simple and probably used by many Giefs, but I thought I would share it. The difference in tick ability/damage between this easier BnB and the simple 2 cr jabs, lk ->EX GH is worth it.
