The car runs strong has a few glitches.
There is no chip attached to ECM. Attached are pictures of ECM and notes written on it.
Anybody recognize the notes? Any recommendations as where to start?

That is a good question. I would start with looking up some part numbers.
Part numbers such as? I am familiar with HEX files as I have used them in tuning my Triumph Rocket III but I have no idea as to where the Mustang / Ford HEX might have come from. I have read Vortech kits came with Diablo handhelds thinking I might buy one hook it up and see if it may recognize a modded tune that may have originated from Vortech / Diablo. What you think?

Some research may shed some light on the situation in regards to this. I see a JET products part number and the vortech sticker appears to have some information on it i cant read from the picture

Yea, when I saw the Jet number on it I went looking under the Vortech tape for a Jet chip but nothing. Going to have to hook up to OBD port with something other than my reader and hope for something to show.

Cool, keep us informed of what you come up with. I am sure others have run into this before as well.
