but it is pretty simple i think you have to just disconnect one of the pins in one of the plugs... just bend it... and it works great. i may be wrong. it's on here somewhere though. V8 clusters are simple, V9(06-07) require a little bit of electroneering.
as far as i know, to get the V8 cluster working all you need to do is snip one wire. the same goes for the 06/07 but you also need to trim the plastic plug because one of the ridges may be different.
just do a search. there was a really good write-up on scoobymods
