The Interceptor gauge is 52mm (2 1/16") in diameter and will fit in all standard gauge pods of this size. A 5' cable is included with appropriate OBD2 connector. A splitter cable is included with the dual Interceptor units. Gauges come with a standard black bezel or optional anodized aluminum or chrome bezel. State bezel preference when ordering.
A function menu is available by pushing both buttons simultaneously. The first menu option allows you to enter a record mode. Once selected, the Interceptor will return to normal scan mode, but will start recording the displayed data automatically when the throttle exceeds 50% and engine load exceeds 65%. Approximately 50-60 seconds of data will be stored. Returning to the menu screen, you can choose to replay the stored data on the Interceptor display.
Another menu option offers the ability to swap the foreground and backround colors of the display (to be shown soon in the IMAGES section of this site). Using this feature, for example, the gauge with a black backround and blue characters (negative image) becomes a blue backround with black characters (positive image). Not only can this be visually appealing but beneficial in changing lighting conditions. Positive images are easier to read in bright sunlight, negative at night.
The Interceptor's scan rate can also be adjusted through a menu function.
DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) can be accessed and cleared via menu options. Click here for a list of powertrain diagnostic trouble code explainations.
An integrated shift light, using high intensity LED's, can be programmed to light at any desirable rpm point. Due to the gauges extremely fast update rate, this light is very accurate and easy to set. Once you try it you'll find you can't live without it!
The Interceptor will measure 0-60 times, as well as 1/8 and 1/4 mile time and speeds. This is accomplished through a simple menu selection. See if those mods really do work!
Finally the two analog inputs can be configured through menu choices. A linear conversion can be entered so that an analog signal connected to the gauge can be read in appropriate units. These inputs are handy for pressure signals such as those from MAP and oil pressure sensors, analog outputs from Air/Fuel ratio kits, etc. These signal can then be read and recorded along side the other parameters obtained on the vehicle's bus.
Installation is accomplished by simply plugging the supplied connector into the OBD2 port below the steering wheel and connecting a separate included wire to a switched 12v vehicle power source. Virtually plug-and-play!
