Carputer v2

Well the time has come to work on the version two install of the car computer. This time around I’m doing quite a few things different.

Parts ordered:
Car Computer Case
Motherboard
DC-DC Power Supply
Memory: 2GB
Hard Disk: 80GB SATA 2.5 Drive (Until prices drop a little more for ~32-60GB Solid State SATA Drives.)

I started pulling some of the wires back from the car last night, removed the rear seat to get to everything. I’m going to clean up all the wires and such over this weekend and get the install ready for when the parts come. Instead of having an LCD screen available, I’m heading more towards a headless install with just the necessary buttons for some music control and a few other things.

I will have photos posted up soon of the install progress, and of the new equipment.

Goals:
Headless (No monitor unless it’s needed for specific purposes).
HPTuners control on the system instead of laptop.
Program to control upload/save of scans and tune files.
Steering Wheel control for radio and computer using a JoyCon (Future).
Build new house for 2 Line LCD, cleaner install.
Less ghetto looking install of computer in rear.
