I quickly looked through the thread and the car looks great.

Having the rew in there, did you lose any functions that the car would come with stock? A/C etc and what engine management are you using? Sorry if this has been asked and answered... Oh and does the firewall need to be clearanced to fit the motor in? I've heard of people hammering it out?

Yes everything works like stock! ecu is stock w/mazsport int-x. A/C, CC all work.

Firewall is cleared using a Xcessive FD LIM...no need to beat on the firewall

The interceptor x is just a microtech lt-10, correct? Which you can just control air fuel/timing pretty much, everything else is through the factory ecu? Nice to know everything remains the same as if it were stock tho! Do you have to wire the interceptor x in? I have an s2, dunno if it would work or not... Would maybe have to just go full standalone.

And good to know theres options to avoid smashing your firewall in. Thanks
