Nah, got no idea about that. I doubt thet'd even BE flashable. Most likely permanently fixed ROM.

Do what I did when I had my NA Fairlane, fit a trip computer from an NC III Fairlane as the calendar goes back to 1972, hence its the same calendar year as 2000,.

So if you run it off the year 1982, its the same calendar year as 2006.

EF/EL just wont work, different plug, shape, costs etc.
