XG dash

I Have a XG ute with a 5 speed Manual Problem is I don't have a tacho. My mate suggested a S pack dash but i was just wondering what are all the options and also price and how hard installation is

Re: XG dash

An XG S dash would be an easy swap, you will need to change the oil pressure switch to an oil pressure sender though.

Re: XG dash

Based on what you have to do to fit the mid series dash into EA to ED base series wiring an EA to ED S Pack Dash will fit with additional wiring for tacho, low coolant light and a mod for the voltmeter. You also need oil pressure sender - now about $75 new.

The XG S Pack dash is nicer looking as it has white numerals and markings. The E series dash has yellow numerals and markings

I have an EB series II S-Pack dash and it has smart lock and power switch that is going in the Ute over Christmas so I should have info then. I'm going to install it first without any wiring mods to see what works

Re: XG dash

Hi all..

All falcon's XD onwards had universal style wiring.. meaning, if you want to plug in a sports dash, you just rip the old standard one out and plug in the new one.. As suggested though you will need to change the oil pressure switch.

Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject...

Re: XG dash

Put the EB Series 2 sports dash in the XG today. Bolted in in 15 minutes. Everything works except handbrake light - probably bulb. Haven't looked for low coolant wiring under the bonnet yet. Hell of a lot easier than upgrading an EB

Biggest job is changing the oil pressure switch

Thanks xeclevo51 - saved me a bunch of effort
