The Interceptor is capable of displaying the following parameters, two at a time, at a rate of approximately 20 times per second. Not all are supported by every vehicle, so there is no guarantee that the Interceptor will display all of these on your particular car or truck. If the vehicle is broadcasting the parameter, the Interceptor will recognize this and make it available for display.
Intake Air Temperature
Mass Air Flow Sensor Frequency
Mass Air Flow Sensor (lb/min.)
Engine Coolant Temperature
Injector Pulse Width (bank 1 and 2 if supported)
Long Term Fuel Trim (bank 1 and 2 if supported)
Short Term Fuel Trim (bank 1 and 2 if supported)
O2 Sensor Voltage (bank 1 and 2 if supported)
Manifold Pressure in PSI (Boost pressure for factory turbo/supercharger applications)
Engine Run Time
Idle air Control Counts
Throttle Position Percentage
Throttle Position Voltage
Oil pressure (some 8 cylinder engines)
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.
A function menu is available by pushing both buttons simultaneously. One 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 35-40 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'* scan rate can also be adjusted through a menu function.
Lastly, DTC'* (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) can be accessed and cleared via menu options.
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!
