    Was just thinking a new exhaust would be a cheap power boost for around $250 total

    yeah thats a good price the power boost wont be massive its more a mental thing because it's louder you get a sense of more power and speed if anything you might gain a few kw

    Yep it is now my old Macbook pro 13 (2009) sitting in the boot attached with velcro :)
    The MBP is powered by a 12v DC to DC power converter.
    It has a 5m HDMI cable running to the 7 inch lilliput 800x480 touchscreen. OS X would not support the res so i used SwitchResX to correct it.
    There is also a 5m usb cable running from the boot up behind the head unit where it is attached to a powered usb hub. Coming off this hub is the powermate, touchscreen, OBD2 connecter and the sound card (witch runs to the rear aux (help with this was found at "http://forum.grrrr8.net/archive/index.php/t-13238.html")
    There is also a Telstra USB internet stick and a gps unit attached in the boot.
    The software that it is currently running is iTunes, Google earth, movi and my front end software witch combined with the powermate can control most of the software. Just in case something goes wrong i have a wireless keyboard in the glove box.
    Oh n currently i am trying to integrate an app called nocturne for a "night mode"
    There is more but currently i am forgetting it :)

    Just an update on the mods
    Just got some projector headlights from ebay and installed them (cost around $350 all up), they look good and only took 2-3h to install. Oh n i have got HID high beams.
    Also while i had the front bar off I installed fog light bezels planning something interesting with them.

    These are the new lights before the install

    The front end after

    Oh and i have debadged the "Omega" and "Commodore" from the back end looks much cleaner :)

    So what do you think so far??

    I have redone mine with 2 of these Green 30cm Flexible Under Car 12-LED Strip Neon Light (eBay item 140562078024 end time 08-Jul-11 19:23:41 AEST) : eBay Motors
    They provide much more light than in the pic
    To do it i ripped out the stock light and hooked up the 2 led strips in parallel

    Take your choice out of these
    blue led strip 12v | eBay

    Get the ones that lie flat like this Blue-12V 30cm Flexible Waterproof SMD LED Light Strip | eBay

    They have adhesive on the back and i also used cable ties to hold them on.
