Yeah, looks the same as the one from Moristech. I have one in my 88EA.

Thats not a "plug in" ECU, its a "wire in" interceptor.

That is correct. But still good for changing the fuel map and ignition map, plus NOS, extra injectors, turbo/super charging, all with using a laptop.

Dont waste money on smoke and mirrors!

They run the engine using the paramaters setup by the tuner, as opposed to trying to 'trick' the factory ECU.

From what I gather with the interceptor, is that it adds to what the ECU is puting out, in percentages, and at different load and throttle position, and engine rpm's.
I currently have a JMM unit in my 88EA and it works great, just have to tweek it some more. Saves me having to go to a dyno, ( theres only one here, and run by a moron ).

So what happens when the ECU discovers that the engine isnt performing as it expects (due to the altered signals) ? It begins to compensate, and your % based interceptor tune is inaccurate.

If you're street tuning your interceptor, there's no reason why you cant street tune a real ECU. You get the same outcome; a potentially unsafe tune. Also, by street tuning, you're not getting the best tune out of your car.. defeating the purpose of spending money on engine management.

I dont see why people spend $1000's on smoke and mirrors when there's ECU's like the megasquirt that are available cheaper which will run the entire engine to spec, or commercial variants which cost the same, or a bit more (depending on feature lists) than an interceptor system.
