  • 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT + Infill G4 & Multiple LCD's

    I just finished my project with my car.


    Finished Interior







    License Plate Camera





    then under the hood there is a AEM cold air intake. (I actually had to take off the cold air intake because Mitsubishi would not service my car. the engine light was on for a evap system leak and they still didn't service it even though its a totally different part of the car, also AEM says that their cold air intake wouldn't void my warranty but they didn't say the Mitsubishi was going to be a ***** about it).






    Here's the exterior of the car. there are no mods








    There's me sitting in the Uber Mobile.

      looks good! i would loose the keyboard and use an on-screen solution.

      and your ground loop isolator should be a bit far away from the audio source, not tied to it

        well the ground loop isolator worked fine when it was attached, unfortunately I connected the XM adapter in reverse Polarity and the thing was smoking and almost caught on fire so now i don't need the ground loop isolator. o and one question do they make a video ground loop isolator, and if so does it work well because i have image shaking on my mirror LCD every-time the car is running.

          Ground loop isolators should never be permanently installed in anything. They are a diagnostic tool, not a fix to the problem. If you need a ground loop isolator to get rid of noise, guess what, you've got a ground loop! Do it right, lose the isolator, find the source of the ground loop, and fix it.

                Doesn't the alternator put out ground noise? because when i turn off the ignition the noise goes away.

                  Yes the noise comes from the alternator (AC) and when you run off of the battery you are feeding DC.

                  But the point is that if you isolate the power wires from the sound wires, you wont allow the interference from the power cables to disort the audio. And that is what you should do.

                  I think it is perfectly ok to leave a GLI in place, but it should be a last resort. Also it degrades the audio quality severly, and anyone with an ear for sound that rides in your car, will instantly know, and no matter the quality of all the rest of the work, that automatically puts you in a lower quality/grade install category.

                    Well the thing is I'm not even using the XM radio module anymore (Ismoked it when I plugged it in on reverse polarity LOL. But on My Rear view mirror LCD I even notice Ground Noise. is there a way i can fix this for video.

                      They make isolators for video, but they aren't cheap. Easiest thing to do is to do it right. Seperate your power and video cables, make sure the wire you are using is sufficient size, and everything will be ok.

                          Well the mirror is not VGA but it has 2 composite inputs, one is for the backup cam and the other is for the secondary monitor on the G4 (the G4 doesn't even have a VGA out Grrrr ) the other cool thing with the mirror is that it is also a bluetooth handsfree device. IDK how they sell that for $150. I love eBay

                            William,

                            The more I look at this site the more I want to install a computer in my car. I was just curious, how did you go about mounting that screen in the dashboard?? Was it easy to do??

                            Thanks,

                            Kyle Jones

                              Thats an Infill G4. It mounts just like any other double DIN stereo. There are dash kits for cars
