  • Ah Finally...2003 Mitsubishi Evolution VIII CarPC

    I must first say "Thanks" to many of the members of this forum. Without you, I would not be here today(sniff, sniff).....and I'd be a lot richer!

    I finally sat down and put together a web page about my CarPC Project. I have been enjoying it so much that I have been delaying documenting it. Here's a link to it...

      Your Mitsubishi is a beast: 370Nm @ 3500rpm for a 2l engine...nice. I guess the hp increases respectively with the $$$ of the car : )

              Thanks. I'm anxious to see what Mitsu does next year in the WRC. Hopefully SOMETHING. The Evo8 is dominating the SCCA ProRally here in the states. David Higgins is a great driver.

              I haven't watched the Italy rally yet. Its waiting on my TiVo.

              It was just an empty cubby for storage. You can buy a part from Mitsubishi that replaces the cubby with a DIN. Worked out real nice. I was used to my old mitsu eclipse where I could adjust the volume with my hand on the shift knob. Now I have that again. I also am glad the screen is up high on the dash so that I can still see out if I happen to glance at the screen. Or if I am tinkering at a stoplight, I can still see when the light turns green or the cars move in front of me.

                    Thanks...

                    I must say the screen is great. I am impressed with how it auto sizes the images and can run so many resolutions. I also like how when you rotate the screen out, it secures the mechanism from sliding back in the dash. I was a little worried about that since my DIN is tilted back. The touchscreen is even easier to use than expected.

                    I would have one request from the touchscreen driver. When using the right click button, it covers a part on the screen that I use quite often. It would be nice if there was a driver that worked like the PocketPC interface. If you touch and hold in the same spot for more than a second or two, it changes it into a right click. Just a thought. Who writes the touchscreen drivers? Maybe that could be a configurable option.

                    Overall a Great Product!

                    Thanks Armen

                              I see his own cable for $122. I have the ElmElectronics cable used by the scantool.net software and "Jeff's" cables http://www.planetfall.com/~jeff/obdii/ which works with opendiag, freediag, vagcom, and maybe more.

                              Which cable is obd-2 cable use? Or is it his own unique cable? I tried both mine and neither seemed to work.
