1998 Nissan Skyline R34 GT-T ~ Infotainment System
Hello everyone! I'm new to all this so please bear with me.
I've owned my car for just over 8 years now. I never really focused on the audio/video system as I was always concentrated on the motor and suspension. I swapped out my original motor for a RB26 after 2 years of owning my car. It was nothing but problem after problem after that.. they weren't lying when they said buying a used motor is risky. 9 months ago my car was dead in my yard waiting for me to save up and rebuild the motor as well as redo the audio system and attempt to install a PC for more functionality. A month ago I finally bought all the parts I needed for the motor and rebuilt it. Now it's time for the "infotainment" system. Next is the body&rims paint-job which should be around mid July.
Parts are already ordered for my infotainment system and on their way... should be a few weeks since I live in South Korea. Below are some diagrams I built up for the new system. Also attached are some pics of my new rebuilt motor. Please don't mind my crappy paint shop editing lol I do that because I'm a visual thinker so I need to see the whole picture instead of writing it out.
I think I made a big mistake with choosing the components for my infotainment system. I've done some research and thought they would work out pretty well since I'm not gaming or anything extremely taxing to a pc but now that I've joined mp3car and read up on other members builds.. I feel my PC choice was the wrong one (mainly because I don't see anyone else with it). I might have to rethink that part of my build. If there's any Pros out there reading my thread, I'm very open to suggestions. TIA! I did order the 1900 power regulator with the add-on extra rail so I don't think I'll have power issues.
The functionality I want are: Bluetooth phone for android SG3, music, video (not really for movies but video clips), front/rear/interior cameras for recording track driving and security, ECU mapping for dyno/track weekends, GPS and TPS in the future.
I think the GPS will be very hard for me to integrate into Centrafuse 4.0. I've tried looking for maps but can't get any type of hit on any search engines. Plus I see a lot of other members having problems with 4.0 maps.
