  • Carputer installed 1986 Mazda RX-7

    Well I finally got it all installed and most of the bugs sorted out, got a few settings to play around with for ease of use. Using a laptop proved to be a bit of a challenge but I like the flexibility of it. May put in navigation and wireless (cell phone towers) internet some day, pretty much limitless what can be done now. I put a cool little USB 2.0 hub in the ash tray, fits perfectly... so now my buds can just plug in there USB sticks of media and jam to their tunes or I can easily copy stuff over. Also put brand new Corbeau CR1's during the down time, not real pleased with the fitment in the car (sit kinda high), but they're very comfy and should hold me in place while dodging cones...

    Enjoy!!

    This is how it looked before with my CD player and my Haltuner O2 sensor gauge.



    The screenshot is of my "engine data page" for the haltech displaying all the sensors I'll be monitoring at start/finish of autox runs.










    A pic from above to show how much the screen sticks out wrt the rest of the center console. (not much, was easy install this way)

      I know I didn't go "all-out" on this install, some minor fabbing. I coulda hacked n glassed the screen into the console but I am tight on time and am satisified with this for the time being. If I can nab another console cheap sometime I may flush it up like some of ya'll have done, it looks really good that way.

                      wow... I like where the way the monitor sits. I just hope it's not too low for your eyes as you drive...

                              Fab and Install Details

                              What a great job.

                              I have a '88 vert that just got a cosmo + hybred + haltech.

                              I *know* I'll have to move the new gauges that are now just above the ashtray, but your install is a fine model for me.

                              Do you have any details on your mounting and fitting?
