EA Spac cluster has been installed.!!!

Before i start. A big thanks goes out to SiX_iN_a_RoW, he is the man.!!! he hooked me up with this spac cluster. CHeers buddy.

Well, where do i start. The hardest part of this was clocking the kms back to the correct total. Unfortunatly i cracked abit of the plastic, so a warning when doing this, just take it off slowly and bit by bit. You only need to take the clear plastic off, its glued in but can be glued back ok. To clock the kms back just get a small screwdriver and move the digits to where you want.

Wiring the tacho was easy, its the pink wire near the break fluid under the bonnet. Then pin 8 on the big connector to the cluster (16pin). The volt meter was abit lame, not accurate but theres a fix for that. will do it later. I still need to change the oil sender to pressure one to. This is one of the easiest mods i have ever done, so much easier than the trip computer.

*Warning* This mod has one major problem. After its installed you will be thrashing your car like crazy and staring at the tacho and not the road. I took it for a test on the freeway. In first gear i reved it out to 4 grand, to scared to go any harder, second got to 4 and a 1/2 and 3rd (not tested yet). This was done at 2 am last night on open freeway with no cars around.

If anyone needs helping doing this mod just pm me and i can walk you threw it.

Re: EA Spac cluster has been installed.!!!

Yep, a very easy and worthwhile mod. I highly recommend this to anyone with a low spec cluster. I don't know how hard changing the oil pressure sender is, because I waited until we did the multipoint conversion and had the intake manifold off the car.

Re: EA Spac cluster has been installed.!!!

well done, i remember when i done mine for the first time couldnt stop thrashing it. also noticed my fuel gauge move to much when doing this so i slowed it down a bit. also why did you remove the glued on clear plastic? the black plastic that it is attached to is screwed on by about 6 screws around the outside and 4 in the middle.
