You need to sort out the earthing problem primarily,as it could the cause of the apparent ECU fault.If the engine isn't earthed properly,then the engine sensors won't be working properly and this will cause the ECU to appear to be faulty when really it's reacting to the incorrect information it's getting.

Even a small resistance in the earth system can cause mayhem,so I'd get this sorted first and go from there.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
