  • 2007 Mitsubishi Triton

    When i forst got my truck and i started modding it i never really thought to put a carpc in it, but as i slowly ran out of other things to do i eventually decided to tackle puttin one in.

    few pics stock as a rock.



    what it looks like now.




    have done quite a bit, but seeing as its a carpc site, i better put up some pics of that.

    i used a dell Optiplex SX270 and mounted that under the front seat. powered using a carnetix 2140




    the cables run down thre the centre consol to the lilliput touchscreen in the dash.

    I took out the existing surround and modded it slightly to fit screen.










    I just added the 7 port powered USB hub today.




    Picture of the computer with seat back in.




    Reverse camera is installed in the back, i actually cut it thru the number plate as the plates in Western Australia already have a small circular symbol there.





    few more pics of other mods i have done

    boost gauge


    adjustable boost controller (and CB radio install)


    Extra switches in the dash, one for spotties, one for reverse lights, one blank
    shiny one top left is the turbo timer


    Pioneer head unit


    Kenwood amp under the seat




    Dual battery setup





    And finally this would be my favourite accessory, although it can be the most expensive...




    here is a link to my utes shed profile to another site i am on "newtriton.net"

      quick question, what is your dual battery setup?

      ie, isolater, battery type, etc
      "To start press any key" Where's the "any" key?

        the secondary battery is a deep cycle Century 47T

        They are joined via a voltage sensitive relay.
        It was $150 for the relay from battery world.
        cuts in at 13.7v
        cuts out at 12.8V

            i was wondering only because if the batteries arent matched or on an isolator, you could potentially kill one faster charging the other one (without isolator they would both charge at once)

              im not entirely sure what you mean? are you saying my setup is wrong or bad?

              My understanding is that my setup is correct for me as i DO wish to have two different types of batterys. ie; a deep cycle for running a fridge and other components.

              The isolator being voltage sensitve ensures that my cranking battery ALWAYS has power, which is also good because i dont want a flat battery when im in the middle of the bush.

                shouldn't it be the other way around? so that when the voltage goes down on the normal battery the deep cycle engages?

                example:

                normal battery running your accessories starts to wear down, hits 12.8v the relay senses low voltage and switches over to the deep cycle battery.

                but what happens when you start the truck? does it charge the deep cycle battery until it hits 13.7v then it goes back to the main battery?

                did i get it right?

                  not at all. i was just bringing up the why for other readers that might not know why they would need an isolator

                    a normal setup to my knowledge is that the car and its own accessories run on the standard or primary battery. you have a second battery on an isolator for all the many aftermarket goodies on your ride. the isolator allows both batteries to charge as needed, but isolates the 2nd battery from the first.

                      ur close, but u have it the wrong way around

                      When u start the truck, the alternator charges the main battery, and then when it reaches 13.7v the relay cuts IN. and begins to charge the auxillary battery.

                      if the voltage of the main battery drops below 12.8v the isolater cuts OUT and begins to charge the main battery again.

                          I see that you have the cheap USB hub from eBay... I bought a few of them but the blinking LEDs annoyed me so i took them off. It worked for a little while but then it stopped working. I don't know if it was just bc it was a cheapo or if it had something to do with me removing the LEDs. How is it holding up for you so far?

                            haha, funny you should say that, every now and then it decides it does not want to work, i have to unplug the usb and plug it back in, i put it down to it being an el cheapo too

                              how is the sound quality from the dell? I bought an sx270 and plan to put it in truck.
