Re: S Pack Dash

your better off getting an xr6 dash from an xg ute or panel van, they are a straight fit, as they are the same dash, but you will have to custom make a wiring loom to get everything to work. They would also run different sensors for thinks like oil pressure guage and temp guage, so you may have to swap those over too.

yes it is a straight swap, the only thing that needs changing is the oil pressure switch on the motor to the guage type.

No you dont, it is a straight swap, I put a XF Fairmont dash into my old XF station wagon and it worked without a hassle, trip computer everything, it wasnt hard swapping them over either, just have to make sure you have all the looms connected. Didnt even have to chage any sensors either.

Give it a go it was a fun project, and the end result was fantastic.
