That’s an interesting question.  :disturbed:

Your assumption that electrical storms will “kill most cpus/ecus" is completely false.  :shake:

There are millions of vehicles that are ECU controlled that are exposed to the most severe weather and climate conditions and don’t fail or are “killed”.  :thumbs:

There are speculations and assumptions made about an EMP from a nuclear bomb blast that predict the destruction of electrical circuits.  But scientists make hypothetical predictions all the time, often to be proven false later.  :blah:

Can you eliminate the ECU in a carb’d engine…. Of course.  :gap:

There may be a number of reasons “why” you would want “delete" the ECU in our Toyota engines, but I can’t think of a practical reason based upon most of the applications of the 4x4 wheeling community. :dunno:

Gnarls.  :inthedark:
