    s2000 cluster in 5th gen

    Anyone tried that before? DIY or know someone or particular auto electrical who will be able to do it?
    Having a sports car does not mean you need to break the speed limit all the times.

    There's a fair bit of room behind the 5th gen cluster, I think in terms of fitment it could possibly work..

    buuuuut, there is no way I can see that the digital Odo's would work with the stock wiring harnesses.

    The VSS that the S2000 uses is different to other Hondas. This means that it's not just a matter of plugging in the VSS into the dash and being all sweet.

    It has been done on Civics so yes, it CAN be done but you need to consider the time, effort and cost of doing so.

    This website shows what's involved with doing the S2000 swap into a Civic. I've nearly completed an Instrumentation & Control degree and I don't know that even I would want to attempt this.

    This guy does the conversion for you:
    http://www.marklamond.co.uk/products/s2000/s2000.htm

    He will do it for 170UK pounds, so around $400AUD, plus shipping of the unit, plus the cost of the unit, plus you have to install it in your own car. Unless you're very serious about it, I would give it a miss - you'll be spending close to a couple of grand for this mod completed.

    Wow.. thanks amperage... it's really good info.. will consider it as my future mod project as i'm a fan of digital speedo. I thought the cost is only between $500 to $1k.. it really blow my budget up

    just realise even with the $80k price tag, the s2000 cluster did not come with inside/outside temperature..

    DC5R cluster is wicked!!!!

    Would look awesome on a white 5th Gen.

    Only problem is the "Type R" written on the speedo.

    oh no i agree,
    the 5th gen prelude cluster is really awesome. Simple and looks very sporty. THe type R just caught my eye. more modern looking.

    I still need to paint my gauge rings silver. Makes our clusters look alot better.

    Prelude cluster is awesome I reckon.

    DIY LED gauges rule... here are mine. Pictures really dont do it justice at all. They come out orangy in photos (notice the "park brake" and "no seatbelt" lights are also orange as.).

    I think there are around 60 Red LEDs in the cluster

    Nice gauge you got there. Looks veerrrryy bright!!!

    I think white would look awesome in our gauges. i Think the red has been done alot in the Mazda range these days. (not to mention they do it very well)

    White would perhaps give a more modern and professional look...

    Interseting choice of you to paint the gauge surround green.
