Re: cluster swap Q

NO, if you already have the two guages and they are working you already have the right sensors.

Re: cluster swap Q

Just find a cluster with a tach. Since you have all gauges, you do not need to swap the temp and oil senders.

The tach cluster is plug and play, no extra wiring needed. Depending on year, 84-86 plug and play, and 87-90 are plug and play.

Re: cluster swap Q

I did this upgrade on my 89 because I had that stupid gas gauge too and no tack. It was simple remove old and put in new and your done. I would try to find the one your looking for out of the same year vehicle so you dont have any problems with it but its well worth it. I also changed from a ugly blue highlight on the gauges to a orangish/red color. Looks alot better.
