Yes, the newer dash will go in.

Digital Dash conversion: Go to the top of this page & use the search button. This has been discussed previously. Consensus is that it's a wiring PITA.

I've done the analog gauge swap into my 82...fairly easy. If you cant find a nice supra gauge the celi will work also but you will need to swap the tach modules. Also fairly easy just lots of screws.

im right in the middle of swapping in a celica 130mph speedo right now, and its really easy :)

all you need is a #2 phillips screwdriver and a box that can fit the instrument cluster inside... as you remove each screw, you push it through the top of the box, in its approximate position, just like a pin cushion.
in fact, i call it the screwcushion, and yes, its patented :p

im also going to get the panel scanned, and hopefully get the image colors reversed, so i can see how white faced gauges look.

theoretically, it should be as simple as scanning it, PSP7ing it, and printing, but i imagine something will crop up.

Is there still a group buy for white faced gauges?

I think the guys that were in the first group buy got jipped. Im not sure but I think they paid something like $130 USD for them and now they are like $79 (I think dont quote me on that) :idea:

SWapping in the new cluster

You'll want also to look at the 'Sticky' thread on this forum about the 82-83 Charge light mod. Has to do with the way that the Charge lamp is wired in the 82-83 (85 mph) vs 84-86 (130mph) clusters. If you don't follow the suggestions, you may end up with an irritating Charge lamp staying on.
