    2005 Infiniti G35 Pentium M CarPC

    Ok, here goes. I currently have the PC built, I am just waiting for god_of_CPU to finish the mount for a Xenarc 70TSV in a 2005 G35. He has the 2003-2004 mount all setup and it looks really nice; the 2005 is done, just waiting for it to get back from the fabrication plant. So, here is what is in the PC itself:

    LV-673 motherboard
    Pentium-M 2.26 GHZ
    2 sticks of 512 mb for a total of 1 gB
    Ati X300 PCI-X video card w 256 mB
    Senao EMP-8602 400mW/26dBm mini-PCI 802.11 a/b/g wireless card
    Hitachi 7k100 7200 rpm 100 gB 2.5" HD
    Generic slot-load DVD-ROM
    DSX12VD (also known as DSX Power Sequencer, described here: DSX Power Sequencer


    On a seperate auxilliary mount, there is the following:
    D-Link 4 port powered USB hub
    Sound Blaster Audigy 2 NX USB sound card
    Opus 15W POL

    Antenna wise, I have the following:

    3 dbI Mobile Mini Antenna, centered on 2.4 ghZ (for 802.11 b/g)
    BU-353 USB GPS Antenna

    Little bit about the car:
    2005 Infiniti G35 Coupe, 6 speed manual transmission, 298 hp stock
    Engine:Crawford high flow cats, HKS Ti True Dual exhaust, free flow intake, MotorDyne MREV modified upper plenum, UR underdrive pulley, GordGee Grounding Gear, JWT Oil Cooler, JWT Oil Pan Spacer (adds 1 quar capacity); approx 330-340 actual HP (haven't dynoed it yet)
    Suspension: Stillen Adjustable Sway bars with urethane bearings, GT Spec rear tie bar
    Interior: Nismo Short Shifter, Valentine 1 radar detector, aluminum bullet shift knob, Blitz R-Vit MultiMeter
    Sound: Stock head unit, Phatbox 40gB MP3 player, JL Audio 500/1 Amp for JL Audio 10w6v2 subwoofer, JL Audio 450/4 biamp for Boston Acoustic Z6, and JL Audio e2150 for a set DB650 6.5 CoAx rears, and lots of Dynamat

    *** Finished redoing the sound system, pics very soon*****

    Fronts: Boston Acoustic Z6 components, bi-amped with a JL Audio 450/4
    Rears: Polk DB650's amped with a JL Audio e2150
    Sub: JL Audio 10w6v2 powered by a JL Audio 500/1

    Other: New distro block, with integrated fuses, 0/1 gauge wire from battery to block, 4 gauge wire from block to amps, AudioControl LC8 as LOC in order to even out frequency response, more dynamat all around

    Plan on putting JWT Twin Turbo kit in as soon as it recieves CARB certification (approx another 100 rwhp....)

    So, here's some pictures:

    First one is a view from the front top of the CarPC



    Second one is a view fron the left top of the CarPC



    Third one is a view from the right top of the CarPC



    Fourth one is my audi setup, the CarPC is in the lower left corner


    Last one is a view of my audio setup with the trunk cover, and teh window cut for viewing. You can still see part of the CarPC


    ****************EDIT #1 *******************

    Cleaned up the wiring in the trunk, see later post




    ****************EDIT #2 *******************

    No new pictures, just added in some more data about the car, and the plans for my new audio system

    ****************EDIT #3********************

    Finished redoing sound system, the 450/4 makes the BA Z6's sing! I have not heard better sound in any car I have been in. Very impressed with BA's high end speakers. Pics of the new amp rack this weekend.

    Also, the G35 screen for 2005/2006 G35's just came out, here Got one on order, just waiting for it to get here, and I will do the install. Still looking for a solution to my sound issue, described in detail here Can't wait to get my CarPC installed and done!

    **************************Edit #4*************

    Changed soem of the pictures to reflect my current setup. Even got a cool little diecast G to add some beauty to the audio setup

    Oh, in answer to a question I got, the trunk carpet goes over the whole thing, and the only trunk space lost is where the subwoofer is. The spare tire was orginally in the spot where the amps are, and the spare tire tool kit was in the spot where the carPC is going. I've got roadside assistance and fix a flat, so no problems there!

    And there is a flat sheet of plexiglass as a top cover for the CarPC, just wasn't on when I took the pics.

    I know the cables are a mess, it's still a work in progress. As for the window, I figure at some point, I will remove the stock trunk floor (the board that the window is in) and put in a new one, that actually fits correctly, and has the window lined up right. Gonna be a bit, though, sometime after I finish everything else.

    Edit: fixed the cables so this is no longer applicable
