Default The postman was very good to me today...

So i come home from work and had 3 packages on the front porch. My Aeroforce interceptor came in from Intense, my cathodes and LED'* came in from Oznium, and Most importantly the supercharger tensioner pulley bolt came from BillBoost37. I have a paper to write tonight so unfortunately i only got the interceptor gauge installed but i have a busy weekend ahead of me.

For the gauge i actually decided to go with the vents on the right side of the wheel since i already have 5 other vents on that side of the car, i could afford to lose one. My other reasoning for this was that i pretty much always steer with my left hand. I'm not sure if i've ever seen anyone on here use these vents, but the Pics from PDads install were still a huge help in guiding me through the process.



It also looks like they've changed the design on the front of the gauge from the old design with the checkered flags, i like this design a bit more.

Many thanks to BillBoost37 for saving the day by having an extra tensioner bolt laying around.

For my lighting project im planning on putting a set of 4" cathodes under each of the front seats facing forward and a set of 12" cathodes under each of the front seats facing backwards. These will join the 2 sets of 4" kits that i have under the dash right now. I got a relay so that they will come on when the normal lights would come on anyways and plan on installing a switch to over ride them when necessary. My other project is to replace the overhead lights with 3 white LEDS in each socket and im going to use plexiglass and the chrome LED mounts to make it a cleaner install.

Kind of a worthless topic right now besides the aeroforce install but i'll be updating over the course of the week with my progress.

Nice install so far. The newer version you got does a couple extra things than the old one - mpg, hp...
I'm anxious to see the results of the lighting project!

So far i like it alot. I'm really more relieved to have my supercharger hooked up again after nearly two weeks without it. I usually drive with my left hand and when i thought about it, it was easier for me to glance over there then it was for me to look over my arm to the left. I was suprised how easily the plastic sanded/melted away with the sanding drum on the dremel.

Can you confirm if this interceptor has new additions to it? and can you take a night picture with the whole dash included? thanks

The gauge indeed has the added features mentioned above. It was late and i was bored so i went out and tested the performance mode twice on some back roads. got a reading of 15.38 @ 94mph with a 7.39 second 0-60. I'm not sure if these are good numbers and i really have no idea how to properly launch a car for lower times but it'* a nice feature regardless.

I'm not sure how well the timer works....I thought I didn't get any wheelspin (which would affect your times to looks faster) and it said I ran a mid 7 0-60 and mid/low 15 sec 1/4 mile. I thought the road was flat too, but I just don't see my car being THAT fast as of right now. We need someone to take it to a track, to get no wheelspin and compare.
