Default FADEC And Header Tank

Im not sure why we are calling this a FADEC (full authority digital engine control). It's a ECU as it looks to me (please tell me I'm wrong, love to have bragging rights) the throttle control is not controlled by the computer, but by a push pull cable similar to the ULS. All the FADEC designs I have seen have the computer controlling the throttle position and if the computer can't control throttle position then it does not have "full authority"

I was also wondering if the new design has some type of header tank for the fuel injection system to vent off any gasses.
