Default RS dash into L

I searched and didn't exactly find what I was looking for.

Is the reinforcement bar needed to make it fit?

I have a 98 L wired for a 94 WRX. It's gonna be a lot of work to get the newer gauge cluster to work correctly, right? If not, how well does the L cluster sit in there with the RS dash?

Wiring for the rear defrost is very different. I have 4 wires and the RS switch has that timer, so which 4 wires for I need to use?

Thanks,

Brent

Ahh yes my friend just did this conversion, his forums name is Scobaru, so you might want to PM him, but Ill answer the stuff that I knew that he had to do to make the coversion work. First you need to get a hold of the RS reinforcement bar for the dash to be put in, also your going to have to get the RS steering column if you want to use the steering wheel and turn signals.Since you went from a 98 to a 94 coverversion, the cluster will be difficult to wire up, well I woudn't say difficult, but time consuming. The speed sensor is a b***h to get working though, that was the biggest problem that he encountered. Also Dan(scobaru) didnt do the wiring for this, a guy did it for him, he was from California and he has wired around 25 Ej20 swaps .

What's the deal with changing the steering column? Are you talking about the whole column assembly?

you could of just MEssaged me hahaha... he did metion my name how many times? you need the whole steering column. the REbar on the new one's the wholes where your steering column bolts on too are too long or short one of the 2 if you had both columns side by side you'll notice that they are pretty different.... along with that the cover for the new interior that goes on the column is pretty different too and you'd have to figuar out how to make that work on teh old column if you where to use it. theres a bunch of other stuff that I don't feel like getting in to detail but IM me if u want S15skyline
