    Your post have either a link or photos, or both, and are flagged for moderation and don't show up.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    I have a 2006 Magnum SRT with the can-bus system. How much do you know about carputers? Thank you for your help
    I like to think I know quite a bit, as I've been involved with the hobgby for a number of years.
    However, I have no experience with in-dash all-in-one units, other than the little bit of hands-on with the Infill G4, which I think is pretty much garbage.
    From the users that have, I've seen nothing but issues, mostly with build quality.

    The amplifier would be mediocre, at best.

    You can get a comparable modular system for at least $500 less, but then you face the task of installing it, which will be more difficult, admittedly.

    Im very good at installing stuff, I dont have any fear for that. You seem to know what your talking about. Tell me what I would need to do this:

    1: Im taking out my aftermarket Kenwood Touchscreen unit
    2: I want to do the Carcomputer and be able to do pretty much everything, Phone,internet, ect ect.
    3: I see like Vroom PC and stuff like that but were im lost is this, I have Can-Bus dont know if your up to date with that or not, but since I have the Kenwood unit I already have the PAC by pass unit that plugs into my factory harness so I can put in a aftermarket deck, How do I splice in the speaker wires, Amp turn on ect to the Carpc??

    What do I need to buy to do this? Thank you for your help.

    It's all in the FAQs:
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/advfaq.php

    As far as what to buy, there's no set guide, because it all depends on your specific project goals.
    If you understand how to get a desktop PC to achieve the functionality you seek, then you simply apply that to a vehicle PC. Understand that a vehicle PC is just a PC, only it's in your ride. The only unique piece of hardware is the power supply.
