The permutations are staggering.
It's simple. There are two classes of entry: 1. MSMA entries (e.g. factory-backed), and 2. Non-MSMA entries.
MSMA entries are free to write their own software for the spec ECU. In exchange, they get 5 engines and 20 liters of fuel.
Non-MSMA entries use the spec software and spec hardware for the ECU, and get 24 liters of fuel and 12 engines.
