SVT Focus with carputer...

My summer car is a highly modified SVT, and like the title suggests, it runs a full blown, watercooled desktop PC in the trunk...
Among its many, many uses, it has a USB OBDII module running fulltime, and DashCommand software displayed up front, which gives all the same readouts as the popular scangauge hardware.

I've never (until now!) ever thought about using it as a driving aid for efficiency...but I just might, when it pull it back out this spring.
Although, I'll admit, I didn't build it for efficiency!

I was just at Mosport a few weeks ago. Incredible track, most of my time has been at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga just because it's closer and the drag strip.

Didn't realize until now that you were in Ontario, that means there is quite a few of us here! I'm west of Toronto in the KW area. Wicked looking focus!
