Would it be difficult to install a new gauge cluster?

I've got a buddy with an s2000 gauge cluster and was curious of anyone knows how difficult it would be to install it?

It is a good amount of work to make it work, but it is possible. Lots of wiring and custom made mount for the cluster to fit.

I helped a friend do it for his RSX, a few weeks after we were done. He parted his car and bought an NSX. Told him I'll never work on a wiring project like that again.

Yeah I've seen it done. It's a ton of wiring and some modding to the cluster bezel. But well worth it in the end.

Yep.. it's hard. But anything worth having usually is.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
