JDM Prelude Type S Gauge Cluster

Hey guys, I had a question about putting a JDM Type S Gauge Cluster into my auto yes I did say auto allthough when the auto goes I'll be doing a 5 speed swap. I just want to know if the JDM Type S Gauge Cluster with is for a 5 speed will work okay with a auto Prelude? Could I still use Triptronic? Would VTEC still kick in at 5500 rpm? Thank you in advance for you're help.

Do you have the cluster already? Just plug it in and go for a nice easy test drive around the block without fully reassembling everything. It only takes about 10 minutes to swap the clusters so if doesn't work it'll take nothing to switch back and then just hold off 'til you do you 5-speed swap.

Re: JDM Prelude Type S Gauge Cluster

Buy a new prelude, theyre cheaper than the swap anyway, ya gunna spend a g on a tranny unless you dont go lsd which is retarted, then 300 on a clutch then 500 on all the misc(hoses wires pedals slave cylinder, then if you dont have a lift w a tranni stand ya payin buku money when I got a lude for 2700 w 120k n tuned it in all the right ways n I run low 13s n I got a k&n n I made some custom parts like bars and exhaust n tuned it upstock runs 14s anyway if you can drive

^don't listen to this kid, he says he is runnin low 13's then says its runnin 14's if you drive good, lol. If you do it right you can do your swap for under 1k. If you're lucky maybe just a little over 500.

edit: I would love to see these "custom parts" YOU made too. If you're gonna flame you're gonna get it right back especially when you sound like a fool

Re: JDM Prelude Type S Gauge Cluster

LOL that guy is a dumbass sorry but buying another prelude is no where near the cost of a swap. You can easily do the swap for 1k or less if your a smart buyer when getting the parts. I've seen people do it for 500 bucks. When a good Prelude is as low as 3k and up.
Your auto cluster should work just fine you just won't have those indicators of the gear your in or the little screen showing the gear you are in when in triptronic. I've seen people keep the auto cluster after a 5spd swap and do just fine.
