    The Car-PC is primarily intended for engine management and monitoring once my engine swap is complete. I’ll be running Delta-Dash via the Subaru select protocol with access to over 30 analogue data signals available on a WRX ECM. For management I’m considering either AccessPort or UTEC with on-board tuning on the fly!

    The GPS wouldn’t gain a strong enough signal anywhere inside the interior therefore it had to be mounted on the roof. The WiFi adapter is installed out of sight under the rear deck yet still positioned out the rear window for strong signal strength.

    The mobo, all peripherals, lilliput, and USB 2.0 hub are all driven from the 150W OPUS regulated 12v and 5v outputs. Quick disconnects on the OPUS allow me to run out an extension cord and plug in a DC power supply and operate on house power for lengthy maintenance and upgrades. Remote control can also be enabled to access the system from inside my house while performing upgrades or data transfers.

    Nice car, nice install, and nice mods-on-the-way

    I don't think I've ever seen one of those LGTs on the road. Then again, I haven't seen a new one yet either.

    I'll also be running Delta Dash on the carputer. The actual install begins as soon as I figure out where to put all these amps without losing too much trunk space.

    Man that’s a sweet Legacy you have there yourself

    I also just picked up an 05’ Legacy Outback 2.5i Limited for my wife’s daily driver. Had to shy away from the Turbo however due to the gas mileage. Besides my Legacy will be the fast car in the family, hers can be the fuel efficient one…

    Thanks for your comments...

    I’m using FrodoPlayer with the “Brushed Aluminum” skin. I’ve tried a number of skins out there but keep coming back to the Brushed. It seems to be one of the easier skins to use while driving.
