          This is your car? I have a subscription to Performance Auto And Sound, I'll watch out for it.
          Why didn't you use the dual core version of this board and why did you connect the rear camera with a USB adapter? It seems easier to plug the camera into the AUX port on the screen and just have it auto switch when you put the car in reverse.

            ^ I didn't find the dual version necessary for my application and budget.

            If my monitor had auto switch that would have been ideal, however it doesn't and this was the other option. Plus it works great on CF it has video record and snap shot options.
            I plan on getting a rear view mirror with back-up cam input and just use the USB adapter for a front camera for parking near curbs.


            btw, this is my car.

            Thanks.

              The motherboard shown in that case is not a D945GCLF. Is that YOUR case? Or just an example of what yours is like...

              If I were a guessing man, the one pictured looks like a Jetway mobo.

              EDIT: Nevermind, it's an EPIA MII 10000. Probably an old pic.

                        If I remember, the 1JZ is a single turbo and the 2JZ is a twin turbo, they came stock in the Soarer and Supras back in the day. The Soarer was only sold in the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) and was offered in North America as the Lexus SC400 which was naturally aspirated. I'm guessing he lives in Canada since the import law in the USA is 25 years or older and in Canada it's only 15.

                          Only the NEW 1JZs are Single turbo with VVTi.
                          MK3 supras and older soarers like mine engine were true twin turbos.
                          The MK4 supra(2JZGTE) is sequential twin turbo.
                          I do not live in Canada, if you notice the car is LHD meaning its a Lexus.

                          here is a render of the speaker grills Ill be making for the rear deck.

                              Oops, you even said in your first post it's a Lexus. My mistake.
                              I see Soarers here every day so it was a logical assumption. I was actually at a meet last night with a right hand drive RX-7 (FD), 180SX, 2 Sylvias and a pile of Skylines.
