    2006 SEMA Show Car Dodge Magnum SRT-8 about to get a Carputer

    Howdy...


    I built this car for SEMA last year, it had the prototype 426 cubic inch motor built for it based on the 6.1L Hemi SRT motor.






    This is what I bought from a friend for $450:

    VOOM PC
    Ampie case
    VIA EPIA MII10000 motherboard
    512mb of ram
    M1-atx power supply
    40Gb Harddrive
    700TSV 7" Touchscreen Monitor

    I just ordered a CD/DVD Drive for it and I have been reading the FAQ to figure out what I need to do to install it...any advice would be appreciated.

    how you getting the sound to the speakers? Are you going to have it go through a Head Unit, or you just going straight to some amps

    As I like to say...."That looks slow AND inexpensive".

    I like the Magnums, and yours is very, very nice.
    Good luck with the FAQs; they have been most helpful for my (ver NON-SEMA) install.

    My attempt at humour.

    finally got around to installing the Car PC... It is a Voom with a 7" touch screen.


    I have a Pioneer AVIC Z1 Nav unit so I am not going to use the Car PC for Radio, MP3, or Navigation....just datalogging my car sensors, internet, and DVDs for the wife on trips.



    I have the Avic Z1 mounted in the dash right now and will of course not move it so I am looking at making a swivel mount for the 7" screen so it can be moved in front of the driver/passenger seat and removed when not it use.

    I will post pics as I go, I have the PC unit mounted under the passenger side dash and the DVD player in the glovebox.
