10.2" Touch Screen Radio Install in Evo 8/9!May 05, 2020
What's up guys? Welcome to a beautiful day or tomorrow here Spokane Washington, we're going to be working on it, you vote today, let me get in the car, we'll do some things inside and I'll explain to you what it's all about. To give it a try, here's what the cut interior looks like. We have this little single DIN
radiothat's not the most attractive at the end of this video. I'm going to try to have a 2 inch 10 point
screenright here. It will work? I don't know, I'm definitely going to try it, so here we have these two wonderful packages.
I don't know, no cool unboxing today. I open them now. First thing is the
radiowe're trying to put this on and I'm not doing it. I don't know if it will fit and if it will clear all the vents and everything, but I'm sure that's how I'm going to try it, so here's the radio, we've got a bunch of wiring, a little bezel, more wiring manual and then you. guys see this is the double din radio, we have a single canister in your factory it's simple, so we had to buy a double canister, because that should be all we need technically to have a big radio in this car before we get there . started I want to give a big shout out to everyone who supported the movement that supports the Boston brand comm first link in the description box we have caps we have shirts we have a lot of products go see it you already know I'm going to have this exact radius we are 10 teams, add this Evo guys, we're not going to try it.
I will literally walk over this car and tell the radios in the car. I have that radio and I have this: come in. So the first thing you will have to do is remove the factory radio. I've never done this before, but we'll figure it out together, so I guess the first thing you need to do is get this little dead guy out of here now. I guess he's supposed to be screwed. The next step will be this radio bezel. I guess it just comes off, so when I'm removing the silver trim from the radio, these climate controls come with it.
I had to plug in, they said take these knobs off and there are two screws under here, take a Phillips screwdriver, take those two screws out and that should remove the climate controls from the edge of the radio, there we go, easy, okay buddy, I'm done to buy the radio screw. Right there on that side there should also be a harness and an antenna that we're going to disconnect. There's anything else connected to the radio box that we don't need, so when you put in a double din and Evo eight or nine. you have to relocate the climbing controls and they'll sit exactly where that little cubby was, this guy here, so we'll grab them, somehow slide them over there and they'll sit here, not sure how. exactly that's going to work, but I know that's what happened, you're going to have to remove all the cables, all that good stuff and then reroute the cables as well so they come out here, so I'll start by removing the wiring.
It looks like there's a cliff right up there, down there, too, after unplugging it and then two, maybe three wires for the climate controls and hopefully the climate control system will turn on. We turn off the climate control and how to get it. these guys cables here is the clip you have to reach underneath and if you can unzip that clip with a small screwdriver or something they will come off right away it's very simple to do once you figure it out so the first thing I do What I'm going to do is relocate this down here and then we can start working on the radio stuff, so I'm just going to set it up there, plug all the cables back in and then take our new relocater, set it up there. and screw this into that relocation kit and then we can move on to the radio let's hit it so as you can see when we
installthis climate control it hits these metal brackets on the side and I'm also reading online that although it's not hitting here to allow this lever to move as far as it needs to, we need to trim that side as well, so I'll take a marker marked exactly what I need to cut and then I'll try to get a dremel or something up there, if I can't get a dremel in there , I'm going to have to remove those side supports and trim them off the car, so I have both sides marked where they need to be cut, there's a quick little Reference for you, if you didn't see in the GoPro pictures that black line right there, that's exactly where I'm going to cut each side.
I'm going to try to do it on the car that I've seen those people be able to do. in the car and some people have not been able to do it in the car. I'm going to try it to see what we can do with the help of that, with the help of that we were able to cut those supports. about five minutes, very easy to do, honestly guys, if you have some tools available at your disposal, like those too, you can cut them, it's not a big problem, now I can get this climate control, let's say we have more than enough. the space now is perfect so I'm going to connect these cables, connect the wiring and then
installthis piece of trim here, we have all the cables and the flare connected, let's take this, install this and we will be officially done with the hardest part. part of the installation so far, which is relocating the climb control, there's only one last thing left to do: remove the factory climate control frame stickers, put them here, and then put the knobs on real quick before continuing with everything that. about exactly what we had to do, we had to make the cut on that side and make the cut on that side, relocate the wires underneath, we have these wires behind the metal bracket, back there, the AC climate control is screwed to this black panel and then this black panel is screwed to - through these two screws up there, let's move on to installing the radio, so the first thing is going to be fusing this harness here, which is a specific harness for the Evo II on the Evo 9, the harness did it.
They come with the kits and we are going to have to fuse them with the harness that comes with the radio, so a lot more wires will come out of this and then go into the car. I'm going to start connecting color to color. here to color there so green green green with a black stripe painted with a black stripe, etc. I have this little diagram here, but that's not helping me much, so I sit back completely and see what we can work out. I have the whole harness bill, there are a bunch of black wires coming out of it and there is no black wire to connect it.
I'm going to connect this harness to the radio, plug the radio into the car and see if we have power for the radio. If not, we have to figure out what those black wires are for and where to connect them. I connected all the wiring, so I just grounded this black wire, plugged it in and screwed it to a metal bracket back there, let's take a wrench, turn it. Turn it on and I'll see if it works Hey, we have power. Yeah, I'm going to take out his harness real quick, clean it all up, probably zip it up, make it nice and neat.
We can get the radio, install the brackets and be done. You will see. what it looks like, the next thing you need to do is remove the OEM single din radio mounts, put it in this double din, put the double din in the car and see if these mounts are really going to work, hoping so and hoping not having to do it. modify them somehow so that the mounting holes on the radio you want to use are the highest mounting holes available, this one right here and this one up here, take your original radio bracket, screw it into those top two holes and we can see how well it only serves for installation purposes.
I removed the
screenfrom the radio. It seems like a very good start. If you ask me, let's take the bezel and see if it fits. It looks like the spokes are tilted back a bit. I can still put a bezel on so you can I can still put the bezel on, but I want it to have a perfect OM fit and finish, so I'm going to remove this bezel and put those radio brackets on just a little bit to Tilt that radio down so everything fits like I should, so let's get her out, see what I have to do.
I'm going to take this hole here and slot it a little bit so I can angle this radio down. a little bit, maybe two millimeters and it should fit pretty well. I killed them both very lightly. Let's put them back on the radio and see if we can get them killable enough to sit where we want. We've got the mounts on, we've got the radio on, let's give it a try, oh yeah, that's what I'm talking about, look guys, installation is going well, so I've got the radio back on, the harness is officially done, everything nice and tidy, we've got All connectors are heat shrinkable.
Are they armed? The supports are adjusted correctly. It had a groove, those holes a little bit, as you saw, it was good to go there. The last thing we need to do is install the accessories we have, like these small USB cables. I'm not going to use that, I'm going to use Bluetooth, we just have a GPS antenna right there. I'll plug it in and we also have the microphone to talk over Bluetooth, so if someone calls me, I want to talk to them. the radio let's connect both real quick I guess it's a personal preference where you least want to use this car.
I'm going to mount this bluetooth microphone up here, right on my steering column and then my GPS antenna. probably pull on that top corner, okay guys, we've got the Bluetooth microchip, uh, the antennas are placed right there, both cables go to where the radio bumps tend to put the radio, put the faceplate, put the screen on all those good stuff, screw it together using these four screws here and honestly we should be done as long as everything works as it should. The radio is officially on. Everything is on. Everything is assembled. It's ready to go. Or something like that.
I would love to do this at that time. That's all. It works guys, it damn works, I can't believe it, it actually looks like I work on this car, this is what it looks like, okay, I may be the style of many of you, but I love this look. I love the look of a big screen that sticks out. the - a little I'm sure I could pull those brackets out to get the whole radio in, but I like that whole tilt feature you said down for your tilt dial, the back could be ready to go.
I have this exact radio on my Face for those of you wondering yes it is an identical radio. I had the same style radio on my Tivo 10, as you know, it had the same screen, the 10.2 inch screen and then I went down to like the seven inch screen with the knobs. On it, everything is integrated into the dashboard of that car, it looks very, very clean, but here is the new look, so I have the screen here, it looks amazing, we have that new thing, that we put in a while ago, we have our meters here. eventually I want to do all the silver stuff here in black, but that's all guys what's sick.
I can't believe we did it, so like I said, I have this radio in a few different cars. I know the road pretty well so I don't really need to explore much it has radio it has GPS it has Bluetooth you can play DVDs you can include the torque app here so with the torque app you can monitor almost all of my gauges. I have an FRS voltage here for almost anything. that reads your ECU, you can continue with this: I don't have the obd2 plugin, you need the obd2 plugin, the Bluetooth and Blue Goose up to here, so it's a pretty sick setup, you can go in here.
I just did it. change wallpapers yeah there's so many things you can do here all this good stuff at the beginning I have my TPMS sensors live on the screen which is pretty sick honestly guys it's endless. I love these radios, it's always one of the first things I do. On any car I have as you guys have seen over the last few years I think they are absolutely amazing, they add a lot to the interior of the car, if you want to pick one of these up they will be linked in the description box below so I would recommend purchasing one , so I'm going to throw this under the radio and throw the - could I use it?
Okay, we have one more thing to do. We have to put those little stickers for our climate control. Those are very fast guys, looks a little better, so sick, officially done 100% ready to go, all I just used is the link in the description box under the only strange white one. All I had to do is connect the radio ground wire. to something metallic in the car because there is no ground wire in the car harness. Really strange situation but pretty easy to overcome, so I like it. I know some of you will probably like it. Oh, it's a rally car, it doesn't need a tennis radio. net, I think it's sick as you can see it tilts down, throw your drive in there, tilt it up, you can literally go online, watch YouTube videos, you can go on Netflix, you can do anything, so, fucking cool, go get one guys, highly.
I recommend, you know, guys, that's going to be a first installation video. I really hope you enjoyed it. I hope I helped them. We have any questions, please leave them in the comments section below, like I said. I already know it. I already said it many times. video linked belowfrom the dash kit installation kit linked below as well. I'll be releasing the kit below that includes those climate control decals. There are two kits available one has the decals and the other and I would recommend getting the set with the decals because it was a bit rubbish vo I'm on the radio fits great sounds amazing everything works as it should A GPS is very useful having the Bluetooth sounds absolutely amazing and last but not least it looks absolutely amazing on the car I will use the I think it really adds a modern feel to this car.
They are quite old cars. Pretty old cars. 203 Eve. Wait, so having a great
touchscreen radio here. Really refreshing, hope you enjoyed. See you in the next video.
