Ok why was the computer changed ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
When I purchased the truck, the seller advised there was a problem with the computer.
He said it would not pass the e-test and he got a conditional pass for the last test. After getting the truck home, I discovered that when first started it sounded like it was smothering with too much choke, also, when trying to hold it about 2000 RPM it would be
surging, and it did not want to rev higher than 2500 RPM. Listening to the exhaust it sounded as though it was burbling, and choking itself to death. When revved up for a minute it seemed to straighten out and after a couple of minutes the burbling sound as if it were running on too much choke would return.
