if i am right, i think that volts * amps = watts
i could be wrong though

Default Psuedo...Ghetto...Whatever u call it...just plain hack....

Im puting a 133 pentium running DOS in my trunk and taking the PS out and putting a few 78M05 and 78M12 regulators on each part to see if I can just use straight Car voltages and making my own psuedo power supply(if it works) instead of going from 12v to 110v to 12 again (tho u will proly hafto for the screen)...

the program im using can display info on a smaller VFD to run up to my dash with a joystick for control.

Then i was gonna have a laptop (again proly just a 233mhz running off of the car) hooked up to my OBD II system (hoping i have the advanced 94 car with OBD II instead of OBD I). It could be interesting.
