150watt Opus power supply

On Order and shipping:
Slimline Slot Type Panasonic DVD/CD-R Combo Drive
External Slimline ide to usb2.0 enclosure (for the drive above)
Rikaline 6100 USB GPS Reciever

What I have currently:
04' Navdoor swapped out for the '03

IN Win Black Micro ATX Case (picture below has it sitting on the glove compartment fake floor to show size)

ASRock K7S41 Micro ATX motherboard (4 front 2 rear usb2.0 ports)
Kingston 512mb DDR400
Spire WisperRock IV silent CPU cooler
Seagate 120GB 7200rpm 8mb cache

well, I would do it, but I would feel guilty doing it. The information on all of this stuff is readily available all over the internet, and I would really just be building you a computer and putting together the nessassary components for some cash in return. If that is what you want I can definatly do that. We would have to discuss what you would want the pc to do etc. Just let me know if you want to do it on your own and i can tell you some things to help get you started.

best of luck... keep in mind... lilliput is 50% a pain in the A$$... spend the extra hundred bucks and get a xenarc... you won't regret it... here's a link to my install ;) In-Z GPS DVD Internet Bluetooth Phone Control
and a couple pics ;) (kind of funny u have the same head unit as me ... lol) there's a video on my website of the car-pc in action :)

my only complaint is that side by side comparisons between xenarc and lilliput show the xenarc with a less clear (more yellowed) image to it. Maybe its just the camera, but i love clear and crisp colored images. Might drive me crazy if its yellowed.

i know which comarison you're talking about... you have to realize thats an old xenarc (2 yrs old). They changed the illumination since then. research some more and you'll find stuff .. plus u can see from my pics its not yellow at all ... here's a nite pic ...
