The term comes from regular EPROM, which required a flash of UV light to reprogram. The EEPROM does this electronically, but the term stuck.

Your Engine Control Unit has an EEPROM that stores timing information for the car. You can 'reflash' it to get a boost of power with properly programmed timing info.
