Default 2004 USDM STi Gauge Cluster in a 2004 WRX!

Just to let all of you out there know that this is completely plug and play for the 2004 WRX, because of the cluster being so simalar and the electrical so simalar this requires no modification at all to put in a 2004 WRX! I installed mine in seconds. I got the info on how to hook up the temp. guage here:

http://www.rspeed.org/howto/sticluster.php

or in downloadable form here:

http://www.rspeed.org/howto/sticluster.pdf

However where it says you have to clip wire B28 so that it does not short the radio fuse, this is not the case in a 2004 WRX! There is no wire there at B28 in a 2004 WRX so it is just plug and play! I am going to try to get the neccessary parts for the temp sensor wire up and i will take some pictures of my complete HVAC/fog light/cruise/clock that i all turned to red, later tonight. This gauge looks sweet and was well worth the money and adds lots of nice features! The one i think would be the nicest is the shift light/buzzer and the outside temp (once i get it working). I am guessing i just use pin B28 and run that to the temp sensor outside and follow the rest of the directions in the how-to posted above. Should be easy but we will see once i get the parts and time to try it.

Your mileage goes to zero but all you do is get the dealer to give you a sticker and a certified subaru tech signs it and they record the number and your set, i had them do that and then i changed the cluster right in the parking lot.

I just went to my local scooby dealer and told them what i wanted to pay, cause i can get some online for cheaper and they matched it! So i was like, nice! They also gave me the sticker that you have to put inside you door to show that you changed your odometer. The only thing i have yet to test is the temp gauge (have to get some time to do the mod above) and make sure the speedo is acuracte, it seems like it is actually reading faster than i am going (which might be good so i don't get a ticket, haha) My second gear shift is about 65 mph now it seems like its around 70!??? But maybe it is because i am winding out the engine more because i don't shift until the shift light comes on

~Zach
P.S. i will get some pictures tonight for you guys!

Stupid question, but I would assume that if you had an automatic the gear selector would not work.

On my 2003 Automatic, the DCCD selector on the JDM cluster worked with the movement of the Automatic stick... but there was no Park, just RNDLL..
