Your computer is behind the passengers side kick panel on the left handside.

No carby have est units electronic spark timing whereas Efi electronic fuel injection both located in the same spot and have stickers with either est or efi on it . Est units are pretty crap i believe est unit use capacitators to provide spark depending on rpm input into them whereas efi are anolog computers and are not reprogramable. So i think techanically an est unit is not a computer and nowadays you wouldn't call an efi unit one either.
