    Carputer in '04 Saturn Ion Coupe

    Has anyone done this with this model or one similar. I saw pictures online from come guy in MI who did it, but his results weren't that appealing to me. I am looking for something neat and clean.

    I am looking to buy parts to put a carputer in my Ion and just want to konw what parts worked well for others. Thanks in advance!

    by guage cluster i mean guage cluster--speedo, fuel guage, etc.

    like this?


    cause I think it would be kickass if you made a pod to put the screen where the guages are supposed to go. You know, right in front of you.

    Those funky guages are what's keeping me from buying an ION. I didnt know if they had fixed it.

    FUNKY GUAGES!! I know at first they were funky to me to but now I really like it there. Not so much for looks but for ease of use. Your hand/steering wheel doesn't get in the way and its only a slight turn of your head and you see all of your guages.

    Second I thought about doing the screen there, but I would be too worried about being pulled over for having a screen that visable. I would be fined for sure. Plus it would get pretty annoying to have the screen glaring in your face, even with gamma dimming. The double din also fit the lilli 7" so good I just couldn't resist.

    Now onto the original post.

    I received your e-mail and have replied.

    You can e-mail me back or post, but I think posting would be better, sharing is caring.

    Oh also, most of my setup parts are listed in this post and where I got the parts.

    But I went somewhat cheap on things so if your not that tight on money I can suggest some better parts.
    Mobo= Epia V
    Ram= 640mb
    Ps= m1-atx
    Screen= Lilly 7" ts
    Hd= 40gig
    case= 1/10 scale model of my car (04 Saturn Ion QC)
    soundcard= soundblaster mp3+
    GPS= Holux gm-210
