help needed on VOLVO S80 D5,2002 Project starting
First of all I think that this is a great community and this is why I have chosen this site to post my topic :) . Please excuse my bad english since it is not my first language.
I want to install a Car Pc in my Vehicle. I like the features this little computer thingy can bring to your car. The only feature i dont need and don't want is Navigation. I have an OEM Navigation System and I'am very satisfied with it, since it has all i expect from a NavSystem (TMC,6,5" 16:9 TFT Monitor,DVD based not CD).
I have a few problems before I can even start thinking about starting the project. The problems are as follows:
1) Where do i put the TFT for the Computer. The S80 is no small car ;), but I don't know where to place it. I need an "extra" TFT additionally to my OEM Navigation TFT because of the fact that there is no way to put an external video signal into the screen. There is a Wiring Kit on the market, but it only fits the NAV Systems based on CD which are older. (Picture of Interieur attached, not mine actually).
2) I have the HU-601 OEM Radio which has no AUX-In. I dont know a way to connect the pc to the Radio so i can hear the sweet sound. I saw a FM DIGITAL STEREO MODULATOR but i dont know how the quality is with that thing. I don't want an Aftermarket Radio, I want to keep my OEM Radio. I want to keep my OEM Radio because of the fact that it looks better with OEM and I dont know where the Navigation System is getting its informations from (Speed Information, the Traffic Information....).
I want to do a nice and clean install so please help me a bit.
This is the Tuning todo list on my S80:
- Install Car PC with TFT in Front and one on the roof in the back
- Install Chip from BSR (www.bsrab.se) From 177 Hp/426 Nm to 197 Hp/470 Nm
-Get Heico Sportiv 18 Zoll Rims
-Get Heico Sportiv lowering suspension
-Paint the Chrome Grille to Black (to look like the 2004+ S80's) or install a new 2005 Grille
-Get Heico Sportiv Double Exhaust Sound of Original D5 engine Sound of D5 engine with sport double exhaust
I don't like that choppy "diesel-like" sound of the engine when its idle. But believe me the five cylinder sound of this powerfull engine when you drive it is great.
Thanks in advance
PS: The second photo from the interieur is not mine and is not from S80. But it shows you where the OEM screen is.
The first photo is my car (shot on a volvo meeting, i have no digicam myself).
