STI Cluster gauge swap unto my wrx 02

I've been researching about this.. can anybody confirm this

- I'll need an 04 STI cluster gauge for close to plug and play install I just need to cut the yellow/green wire forgot what pin.
- down side the outside temp display will not function and rear diff indicator light will always be on?

I don't remember very well but my memory is this is a royal pain if the WRX is 02-05 due to 16-bit and 32-bit ECU differences. I think what people used to do was go get a 98-00 JDM STi dash...

2015 STi: Still Stock
04 STi, 04 WRX: SOLD

Get a JDM one from a V7 STi and save yourself the headaches. Otherwise you will be kicking yourself trying to figure out all the wiring....

Version 7 are completely plug and play. There are quite a few places out there that will flash the cluster to read in MPH or you can add a resistor pack to the harness yourself.

Or you can just pick up a UK V7 Prodrive* cluster which is already built for MPH



*All UK clusters are in MPH but the Prodrive just looks better

It's not that hard to figure out KPH to drive. I mean really it is just simple math, or you can look at the cluster above and see how things line up. As long as you know your points of reference you should be able to drive no problems.

FYI if you find a Spec C Type RA gauge cluster you'll get the sweet 10k tach and 260kph speedo

Metric is better anyway, @psinuse . Ha ha.

Canadian WRX's get the dual km/mph speedos that go to 220 kph.

There are a few for sale on the Facebook Subaru for sale page. $345 is way too high. I just bought a spare prodrive cluster for $275 shipped and paypal'd

Thanks Basco! But sad to say I cant find any other cheaper one Honestly I'm after the shift of the sti cluster I needed something to warn me of over revving while I'm doing the break-in process of hybrid engine once I mount my engine I mean.... but 345 bucks for that purpose is just too much... so I will back down from this project for now.... I decided to go instead with multiple gauges install and one of them is a Tachometer with shift light and audible sound warning.
