So how do I know if I have mefi 5? I recall seeing the black ECM with what looks like cooling fins... Also the plug that I believe is the dtc or dlc is mounted on a plate along with the ECM and 3 relays... The plug had 6 wires and a cap... The end of the plug was purple... Do u guys think this is mefi 5?

As you can see by this pdf http://www.rinda.com/acro/scantool_adapters.pdf there is a break in ECMs.

The attachment shows what each ECM looks like.

You can buy the diacom and get the adapter for the MEFI 5 is not included with the kit look at you diagnostic port on the port side of the v-drive and see what u have on your boat

It "should" be a OBD-M connector. You'd need the Rinda ICAN connector if you buy the diacom software.

Call Rinda direct if you can.

From what I have gathered, any marine motor running CATs will have a MEFI 5 ECM.
