I have a narrow just for show.. But if I do this I'll get a wide.. The narrow is basically just a light show.. Not too accurate.. But the wide is pretty costly in comparison..

I thought you looked it up? You can have it measure nearly anything as long as you have the correct input.

RPM

MPH

Intake Air Temperature pre intercooler

Intake Air Temperature post Intercooler *

Mass Air Flow Sensor Frequency *

Mass Air Flow Sensor (lb/min.)

Engine Coolant Temperature

Injector Pulse Width

Long Term Fuel Trim

Short Term Fuel Trim

O2 Sensor Voltage

Manifold Pressure in PSI (Boost pressure)

Supercharger Inlet Pressure *

Ignition Advance

Knock Retard *

Engine Run Time

Battery Voltage

Throttle Position Percentage

Engine Load

Instantaneous fuel economy

Horsepower

Analog input #1

Analog input #2

So basically, instead of buying three different gauges then the one interceptor would be all i need? i know its expensive, but how much are all of these "inputs" your talking about?

The interceptor connects to your OBD II plug. It can display only two at a time. So you want a boost gauge, and afr at the minimum. You can have your interceptor do that by purchasing wideband sensor that has 0-5v output (like the Innovate LC-1) and a boost gauge. I'm not sure how you would get the Interceptor to read boost electronically, so maybe Hunter can answer that. EGT, get a egt sensor with 0-5v output. Those two can be your analog inputs. The rest of the inputs on this list a factory inputs.

Does that make sense?

Cost breakdown

3-pillar pod - $100~
Interceptor - $240~
Manual Boost Gauge - $80~
EGT sensor - $100~
Widebad O2 - $200~


Or you can get 3 analog gauges.

boost - 80
egt - 100
afr - 250

Does the same thing but not fancy.

i'm pretty sure you'll need a mechanical boost gauge since the stock ECU does not read boost by default.

also the interceptor is only going to display parameters that your ECU has sensors for + analog input(s)

I would just get a wideband and a boost gauge if it was me...you'll spend more getting an LC1 + interceptor than you will with something such as an AEM EUGO

Not just the gauges, but everything in general.. I'll have to show the info I printed out to my two friend who've gone turbo on their cars.. They can explain some of the details to me of what some of it is..

it doesn't seem that hard to me...

the biggest pieces are supercharger, intake manifold, lsj throttle body, idler/tensior setup, intercooler pump, heat exchanger...everything else is little odds and ends.

besides its cheap...although you can always go turbo for double the price if you need a complete kit

the MAP sensor is $85
how is the pigtail $116? Is that the engine harness? I think the TMAP sensor plugs directly into the engine harness

not sure what it comes with yet, it's still "coming" according to dealer. I ordered last week. Its not a hassle if ya know what you're doing it's basic mechanical stuff, and then you need someone to tune or tune yourself.
