i rather be ready for the unseen future and problems ahead rather assume the latter that everthing will be fine . its a definte risk if an electrical storm or emp storm does come i beg to differ and solar flares etc. we have not really had a storm of that maginutde. and they are coming
and i personaly hate ecus in vechiles .. they suk
Electrical storms: If you fear a lightning strike on your vehicle, which is extremely rare considering the number of lightning bolts and the number of automobiles on the roads, a direct lightning strike to your vehicle would most likely blows tires, fry wiring, and ignite the fuel tank Ė of course minus your deleted ECU.
Solar flares: no real danger to us here on Earth. https://www.worldsciencefestival.com/2014/10/whats-real-danger-solar-flares/
EMP: The chance of a nuclear war or attack on a major world city is possible, itís not likely in the USA. A nuclear blast that would cause an EMP powerful enough to damage your ECU-controlled vehicle would most likely destroy so much of the electrical grid and infrastructure, your vehicle would be the least of your concerns.https://www.citymetric.com/horizons/which-cities-are-greatest-risk-nuclear-war-1586
You concern for a potential extreme catastrophic event may be a real fear, but not a likely cause of your ECU-controlled engine failure.
But hereís some protection: https://www.empshield.com/?msclkid=aad39772f45915d030eccaa54a00c77e&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Fiverr%20-%20EMP%20Ad&utm_term=emp&utm_content=EMP%20Ad
ECUs: I agree the ECU and itís required sensors are a pain in the arse to test, diagnose, replace, and buy. Iíd rather have my 1985 22R carbíd engine than my 1986 22RE with itís ECU and sensors.
