    STi gauge cluster ::]

    I couldn't stand the green backlighting for the stock gauges, so I changed the color to red. I tried red leds (horrible), red bulb covers (slightly better). Then I scraped all the green film off the faces, only to break the speedometer. I figured if I was going to cough up hundreds of dollars for a new cluster, I might as well get what I wanted.

    I got it on ebay for $500. ravspec has them for $500 but without the glass, trim and shift light adjuster.

    Now, does anyone know where I can find the instructions for installation in an 2004? The guy I got it from gave me instructions for an 02/03, but in my 04 the DCCD and rear diff temp lights stay on. Thanks!

    Looks very nice.

    Does the cluster show the redline at mid 7s like a wrx or does the sti have a higher revlimiter?

    Also is the speed in mph?

    revlimit probably stays the same becaause it is controlled by the ECU. The STi does have a higher revlimit.

    Yup, rev limit is controlled by the ecu, but the 7k redline is still the same. And yes, its a USDM STi cluster in mph. The JDMs are easy to spot because they only have 1 set of numbers (km/h) instead of having mph and km/h like ours.

    check out www.unysoc.org look for screaming fast. He did this mod with a JDM v8 cluster. Got everything working, and did a GREAT tutorial on it.

    Plug and play.. There were instructions with it that said to clip 2 wires for an 02/03, but my harness is a bit different.

    The odometer was within 1000 miles of mine so I just left it. Might reduce the resale value but I don't mind much.

    Nicely done qoncept. I'm still playing with my tach to get it working properly again. I think you actually bought the cluster I was looking at getting off eBay. But then the price jumped way above what I wanted to pay.

    Did you hook up an outside temp sensor for the temp display? Looks great!!!

    The HVAC was done with red LEDs from autolumination.com (dremeled to disperse the light better), the center gauge pod is done with #194 bulbs and the bulb covers that came with the gauges.

    The outside temp display isn't working yet but eventually I'll get to it, along with the rear diff temp.
