    All STi/STI clusters are not created equal...what year WRX do you have?

    I have an '02, and was advised to go with the '04 STi cluster. It was pretty much plug and go. I had to cut either one or two wires that aren't compatible with my car's electrical setup.

    I still have a rear diff temp light that I need to turn off at some point.

    If you're talking about a later model WRX, the situation is different.

    Yes I have an 06 WRX.

    But yea I have heard it either fits right in or you need to find a year that is close to the one you are replacing plug in and go.

    Thanks for the feedback, What would you recommend?
    Thanks

    I'd start here:

    STi cluster swap FAQ - can we get one started? - NASIOC

    The third post has someone who's done the swap into an '06, using an '05 cluster. Look for someone else who's done it, to confirm. Good luck! I love mine.

    What I read at the time would seem to indicate that it is possible to use a later year cluster, but that it's more trouble. There seemed to be more people reporting of nagging issues with those. So I was patient, and waited for an '04 cluster to pop up on eBay.

    Yours is an '02, (according to your profile), so it should be just like my install. Getting the old cluster out is easy enough.. remove screws in the top of the bezel, pull it off. Remove screws holding in cluster. Remove 3 electrical connectors in back.

    There's one wire that has to be cut on the new cluster, so that a fuse doesn't pop in your car when you power it up. (The stereo fuse, for some reason, was doing this with the first people that tried it) You'll need to research which wire. Search around at Nasioc, the answer's there, because I found it in multiple threads. Install the new cluster just like you did the old one. The only difference that I remember was that the electrical connectors went into the back of the cluster upside-down from how they did in the stock unit. Other than that, you plug it in and go. Bear in mind that your odometer reading will change to whatever's in the new cluster!

    has anyone seen a difference in speed changes or RPM's. it seems that i am going faster than i am actually going. and for the RPM's i usual shift at 3000 when im just cruising but it seems like the RPM's are to high and im shifting at different speeds now. anyone know of this happening? and i heard that there is a 10% difference in clusters but im not sure about that.
