    Right now there are no modifications for pulling out the hot air from the center console. I ran a hose from the feet AC vents to the center console.

    My system has been running great with no heat problems. You can always wire in some fans and cut the sides of the center console to have one blow air "in" and one "out".

    i've since forgot what you were using for a psu, but if it has a startup/shutdown controller, if you kill the engine and kick the car back into on without the motor running, if you do it quick enough, the PC will stay on. the last PC install i worked on had an opus 120W and that tends to work. Otherwise you could wire in a switch with 12V going to the acc lead on the PSU, and with 2 diodes, you could keep the switched live from backfeeding the car's acc line, yet when you turn the car off, the psu sees the acc as being live because the switched line is on.. food for thought anyway. if you have any trouble understanding what im saying, it's a lot easier to see it as a picture, let me know.
