to gnarly;
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

Hey Tiffany,

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.

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.

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:

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. :thumbs:

Gnarls. :gap:
1986 XtraCab SR5 22RE 5speed W56B, ~26,000 MI after break-in, DIM (Did It Myself) rebuilt engine - .020" over, engnbldr RV head, OS valves, 261C cam, DT Header.
