    dont get me wrong...you have a nice car, i drove in one one time and it was a blast...the driver was nutts and got us airborne...but it still was a fun. cool sounding car.

    And 409 rwhp in a car that light is pretty cool...even if it costs you 30 grand!


    and i hope my project comes out as nice as yours!

    Thanks man! The CPU is ghetto for now - wire tied to a trunk tie-down and the child seat strap. Some time this week (hopefully), we're gonna fire up the mig welder and make a bracket. There is a REAL nice mounting point on the side of the trunk that is currently used as a spot to secure a tie-down bracket. I'll be using the mounting bolts and holes to secure my L-bracket using the factory tiedown bolts and holes. And using thumb screws to mount the CPU to the bracket - the same blue thumb-screws that hold the front cover in place. I'll post pics once it's done.
    My first attempt at a carputer.

    PM me if you're interested in a monitor faceplate for your '99-'04 Golf or Jetta. My Vortex ID is NorthAtlR32 - you can IM me there, too. Go here for more information.

    Right now, it's pure ghetto with computer speakers sitting in the back seat. I'll have more info. on this solution later in the week. But with dad being an EE, he's shipped me a solution to boost my line level outputs to the speaker level outputs the Monsoon amp is looking for. It's really nothing more than a pre-amp. Once I've tested it and know it works, I will make sure the solution is posted here, as well as vortex, so all these folks with VW can stop spending all that time and money replacing all their components after a radio swap or carputer install... unless, of course, they still really WANT to.
