  • JK: Aeroforce Interceptor gauge Install

    Let me start of by saying this is a sweet setup. The install was very simple (So easy a caveman could do it.) The functions and features of the gauge are phenomenal.

    I kind of cheated because i already have been running Autometer Transmission TEMP gauge fo a while. So the mounting spot was already choosen plus it was close to the OBD2 port.

    In the box you will find the actual gauge and the OBD2 Data Cable.

    I went ahead and printed a color copy of the instructions from Aeroforces web site.

    I choose not to use a pod and use a preexisting mounting spot i drilled with a holesaw. (you can see the Auto meter gauge I will be replacing)

    I chose the route my cable under the steering column so I did not have to remove my Rockhard Sport cage.

    Actually wiring the gauge into the Jeep is as simple as plugging in the smaller end of the data cable to the plug.

    The whole i drilled was a snug fit so I was able to just press the gauge in with little resistance.

    It comes with a 9' data cable so I decided to neetly wind the excess up and ziptie it out of the way

    Make sure you leave your self enough slack if you need to unplug it from the OBD2 port

    Then just reinstall you trim panels and plug it in to the port and it will fire up and now its ready for the user programming.

    here is a quick video of the booting sequence .

        here are the options tha gauge is capable of scanning

        The Interceptor scan gauge is capable of displaying over 100 parameters, two at a time (8 using cyclic scan), at an adjustable rate of up to 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. A sample list is below...
        Intake Air Temperature (post Intercooler)
        Ambient Air Temperature (pre Intercooler)
        Engine Coolant Temperature
        Exhaust Gas Temperature (PCM Calculated)
        Transmission Temp. (auto trans)
        Manifold Pressure (vacuum/boost) displayed in PSI
        Fuel Temperature
        Battery Voltage
        Battery Temp
        Injector Pulse Width in msec.
        Injector Duty Cycle (%)
        Air Flow Rate into engine
        Long Term Fuel Trim
        Short Term Fuel Trim
        O2 Sensor Voltage
        Barometric Pressure
        Ignition Advance
        Base Spark
        PCM Spark Adjust
        Fuel Status (open/closed loop)
        Wastegate Solenoid Duty Cycle (%)
        Knock Retard
        Knock Sensor Raw Voltage
        Throttle Position Percentage
        Throttle Position Sensor Raw Volts
        Calculated Net Horsepower
        Engine Load
        Transmission Slip
        Current Transmission Gear
        Torque Delivered to Transmission
        Torque Converter lockup status
        Brake pressure
        Brake Booster Travel
        Steering Angle
        Non-driven Wheel Speed
        Lateral G's
        Fuel economy (instantaneous and average)
        P-ratio - pressure ratio MAP/Barometer
        2 user configurable analog inputs**
