4th gen jdm cluster in LHD lude.

can this be done? i wana get an EL cluster, and want km/h (just think its a unique touch almost) but i noticed on the jdm ones the inverter box (i think thats what its called) is on the right side of the cluster. and on the us cluster its on the left side (pretty much routing near the tweeter covers). Has any one ever installed one and knows the inverter will reach and no modifications will be needed? thanks!

left: usdm cluster right: jdm cluster

Re: 4th gen jdm cluster in LHD lude.

ive done this conversion an theres a diy on this... as long as you have at least 2in or more on the pig tails....

the silver box will fit no problem behind the tweeter cover.

i also recommond soldering all your wires for best results.

alright thanks man and also to have the EL part of the cluster work is that all you need is the inverter box??

Re: 4th gen jdm cluster in LHD lude.

I'm actually trying to do this swap on my lude but the DIY EL write up is of little help to me. I have a Jdm 1992 lude and got a Jdm 1995 EL cluster. Both my stock cluster and the EL cluster are automatic. I found that the wire looms are very different just between the two jdm clusters and that the writeup doesnt cover my install as much as I hoped. If I get it sorted I'll post a write up with what I have done to get it to work.

As for the EL cluster, I believe it will work as long as all the crucial wires are hooked up. There is also a dimmer box but without it you will have 3-6 wires missing in the install and no controll over the brightness of the cluster

Re: 4th gen jdm cluster in LHD lude.

Here's a write up on how to do it

USDM Cluster To JDM Cluster Conversion Write-Up - Honda-Tech

I thought about doing it but ended just doing the USDM with the harness (much easier).

If you do it post some pics. I like the little marks in between the MPH/RPM marks of the JDM cluster.
Wonder why they didn't do it in the USDM one.
