As I am sure all of you know, most of the actions a car takes are controlled by a computer.* I am wondering if its possible to add functions to this computer.* If so, it "should" be possible to add a storage device and turn the cars internal computer into an mp3 player.
Just an idea,
all the ECU in a car just listens to variable resistors and changes the fuel mix rather like a carbretter usted to do on old cars. as well as "sniffs" your fumes to make sure there are no blockages and monitors emmisions. various other tasks have been changed by this computer also such as the distributor is usually now replaced and controled by a cam sensor.
thats all they do. usually one chip with a 4k eprom or something onboard. you can however "flash" the chip so you can contol the engine with your own program.. lol not advised tho.
