How to move DSP unit from center stack to hidden location

For those of you whose stereo setups include the DSP unit and wish you could do the GT3 console delete - but you have too much stuff to fit in just two single-DIN slots - keep reading.

You can take apart the DSP unit case and remove the printed circuit board. I punched holes in a piece of 1/16" cardboard to cover all of the switches on the PCB (to prevent them from being pressed accidentally), and taped it up with electrical tape to cover the PCB to prevent accidental grounding. The result is a quarter-inch thick flat rectangle with the DSP connector plug on it that will fit perfectly above the foam liner in the passenger-side footwell.

* Small torx set
* cardboard or other spacer to prevent the buttons being pressed while the unit is tucked away
* electrical tape

Note that this is reversible - nothing in the DSP unit is damaged.

Understeer: You will hit the wall with the front end.
Oversteer: You will hit the wall with the rear end.
Horsepower: How hard you will hit the wall.
Torque: How far you will move the wall.
