Is the screen in the front a factory piece? Where do you suggest to go to find out more information about these types of setup? Any websites devoted to carputers?

What are the specs of that PC?

Did you keep your onstar, or did that have to be scrapped?

Never had OnStar:D

Why did you go with the Xenarc screen when the Lilliput appears to be less expensive. Is it because www.humount.com makes custom mounts for them?
I got Xenarc because of the mount...in my other car I had a cheap Tview that I made a custom mount for it...you'll notice some paint on the left side of the screen...that was my first try and I didn't like it, so I just bought the mount...it was $105 shippied

Looking good, where are you going to mount a cd drive? I like the use of that rear compartment for the comps guts. Keep the pics and info coming on how this one comes along.

Thats killer dude! It would be even more cool if you could adjust the ecu for better performance or efficiency right from the drivers seat.:yes:
You could :raspberry Next paid day I'm going to purchase an OBD PC Scan which has a serial connection.
That will give car diagnostics and performace mod.

If you look on page 1 were the PC is expose, to the right you'll notice a black vertical drive..that's the DVD.
I have about 3K of mp3's and a few music vid...the only time I'm using the DVD is on road trips..so I just left it in the back.
