    2005 Mustang Coupe V6 Install

    Current Setup:
    iBase MB896
    Intel Pentium M 1.6
    512 MB DDR2 RAM
    80 GB 2.5” HD

    I have yet to do anything to the car that is not reversible.

    Noob here,

    Nice Stang and nice install. Got any pics of the install on the dash? I browsed the Mechatroniks site but the more pics the better. Oh and where did you install the carputer? Behind the monitor or in the trunk?

    Yeah, the carputer is installed in the Mechatroniks kit. I forgot to take pictures of it before the install. I am in need of tweaking the OS outside of the car, so I will get some pictures taken while it is out.

    Gotcha, is that outer plastic piece of the bezel part of the kit or did you get that seperate? And the metal piece matches the IUP really well.

    The plastic piece is actually the dash kit made by Metra that can be had at just about any car audio store or website. It is used to adapt the stock space to allow the use of a single or double-din headunit.

    It is a nice dampening upgrade instead of just cramming it in some where that it would take the bumps from our roads.

    That is one sweet install and is exactly the pictures and information I needed before tackling my 2005 V6 Mustang convert. I haven’t done a carputer yet but I am going to now!

    Hope you can give me a hand and answer a few questions I have about your install.

    Did you have the shaker 500/1000 in there (if so are you using those subs?)? You put a nice amp in there but did you hook up the amp to a sound card/adapter or straight to the computer inboard sound? How do the stock speakers sound?

    Is the mechatroniks with the computer inside attached only to the metra which is attached to the car or are there other mounting points that are needed?

    How does the mechatroniks fit in the car? Were there any mods required to get it to fit?

    I’d really appreciate if you have time to answer my questions! Your car is awesome!!!!

    Here is my before (current) picture. I am sure it looks extra boring to you now!

    Thanks for sharing your install!

    Here is a list of all the parts and pieces that I bought or had to get everything working, including prices and places. I will answer all of questions, I just don't have a lot of time tonight. I will try to get them answered tomorrow.
