Bought a fairmont today as a parts car and the ecu wiring has been modified, can anyone tell just by looking what has been done to it? It was a 6DDB ECU - EL Fairmont 4.0L Automatic.

It just looks like the wires had been cut possibly accidently then repaired.( Different colour wire in between same colour)

I would say someone has attempted to run a piggy back ECU at some point. but without the pin out numbers its impossible to say. Even with them, it would be hard to say.
