    STI Gauge Cluster in a 02 WRX

    Can i just buy a gauge cluster on ebay for like 200 bucks and swap it into my bugeye? I know the miles wont transfer unless you find someone that can do it. I know there is a pretty in depth wiring procedure. What kind of shop would most likely do it for me? dealership? tuner shop? myself?

    I just need to get an OEM OAT sensor, then I can finish the air temp circuit and splice that in. Pulling the speedometer takes 5 minutes, so no problems there.

    Lol, thanks Michael!

    OP, if you have any questions, just ask. I haven't had time to ground out the diff light and solder the voltage regulator for the air sensor yet, but it's next on the list.

    GarrettKoonsman and RayfieldsWRX on here have also swapped to the STI cluster. I don't believe either have worked on the outside temp gauge, though.

    Make darn sure you're getting a 2004 STI cluster, though. Swapping a 2005 is possible, but nowhere near as easy as a 2004. All of us have 2004 clusters.

    so this wiring concept wouldnt work with the 04sti cluster in my bugeye? what the alternative steps to take to make it work if that the case.
