Jebus! Ill try to answer all the questions in the order in which they were received.

randman- yes i was planing on even cutting the front panel down to just the display and using smaller buttons in my own shape

billbost- i will NEVER EVER EVER EVER trust my car to be controlled by a computer that has even ONE component in it made by Microsoft or a subsidary of. -- I dont even think i would trust linux to do that. I would have to learn code so i could program it myself so i would be fully responsible

Floyd - i will name the components as i remember them in a later post. You will most likely have to adapt what you can find like i did, because it will be cheaper using what you have access to as opposed to copying anyone exactly. Via boards are nice, but they have two draw backs:
1)They require ATX power (+12v, -12v, +5v, -5v, +3.3v...etc) so you either have to a) buy a 12VDC atx power supply or use an inverter to use a standard ATX PS. First option is expensive, second is inefficient but effective.
2)They are fricken power HOGS. The modern processors have been known to require as much as 50 amps at 5 volts for 1 - 2Ghz range. My single board computer runs fast at 1Ghz (with embedded VIA processor) and draws a measly 4 amps at full power

SSEi95 - It will be controlled via a USB to Parallel port adapter that runs a board of relays.. the appropriate software will be needed to control them. Research "Basic Stamps" and "Basic touch screen" on google and ebay. That device will have the expandability to make a small touch screen into a relay controller, but you have to learn how to program it. Otherwise, if your willing to put out teh $$ there are companies that will build these things for you.

OLDsman105- My car IS indeed OBD 1.5 but its not as weird as most people think. OBD I is the old standard. It is basic serial communication at 160 baud. OBD II is the new standard, it is really fancy and fangled pulse width modulated data tranfer that requires a device to translate it into serial communication. All OBD 1.5 is, is STANDARD SERIAL COMMUNICATION (at TTL levels for you electronics people out there) at 8192 baud. The only thing that is weird is that it is at a very non-standard data rate, but most computers with serial ports can read it (with the appropriate level converter)

Floyd again - See above

95naSTA - as this post is already REALLY long, ill make a second one with pictures of my UGLY temporary setup.

I want a price list...Materials list....and HOW to do everything !!!!!

My car would be so pimp with that.......How would that software react with a force inducted model??? Does it give you manifold pressure and stuff like that? Also will it tell you codes that are setting off an SES light?

OMG I have so many ?'* I can't even think of them all....Definantly interested in this.....and will do it once there is a right up on it.

Ill get working on something, it will take me a month just for the write up! You will need a different set of "definitions" for the software to correctly read the supercharged version.

The version i have is ONLY GOOD FOR OBD I / 1.5 cars. I THINK that the New EFILive will work with Bonnevilles but it was designed for F-Bodies so they might not support the 96+ Bonneville, cant say fur sure, will do research!

I have somewhat of a price list above, if you shop around it could be more expensive for better stuff or less expensive for good buys. Ill get a list up tho

My car still has the OBD 1.5 bastard child.

Will it read codes as you drive....and pop up with some type of warning?

God damned this is the coolest **** I've ever seen. Almost like Knight Rider lol.

Have you ever sonsidered a wireless keyboad to help minimize the wiring clutter?

The current version will not pop up warnings of any sort, but if you feel something wrong you can record the data from your PCM and review it later to find what went wrong. And yes it will report data as you drive. (Itsa lot of fun to watch, but only watch it when your stopped!)

Wireless keyboards are OK BUT if they are infared the range sucks, and if they are RF then they eat through batteries... and i dont like replacing batteries that often.

My range is a good 10-15ft on my wireless and i change batteries roughly twice a year?
