Re: Thats a good Q, hey does anybody know if I should get mechanical or electric?
negative. I ordered the electrical gauges (well except for the speedo which is mechanical).
Regardless if you use the stock cluster piece, you'll still have to re-wire the gauges and teh stock cluster is on a circuit board and they all connect to a plug. You'll need to trace the circuit leads to each wire and go from there.
It wasn't easy, but the resutls of my project turned out most excellent!
