Question e-series computers/chips


Was wondering what type of computer the e-series (particulary the EF) cars run off

Things like how it was made?
is info burnt on?
Who by?
What on?
What programmes? etc.

I cant remember what i was actually ment to ask, so if u think of anything else, let us know.

I know an electronic engineer who thinks it mightnt be to hard to fiddle round with em once he knowns who/what/why/when.

Thought it might be worth having a play :) if its not worth it, no biggie

Re: e-series computers/chips

The computer in the EF is Fords EECV. It was designed by Ford in the US. Standard fuel, timing and transmission maps are calculated, designed and stored onto the computer by Ford Australia. I dont believe the EECIV had flash re-programmable memory (hence the need for add-on chips to enhance power), im unsure about the EF.
