Why?
it looks the same
and wont increase value of the car.
itl just make it look stupid because if you decide to sell the buyer will get suspicious if he is uninformed
and will think that there are a lot of miles on the car and the guages are rolled back
there are some really stupid people out there
so be careful i dont see a point in it but good luck

my friend got the boost/oil/temp gauge box with the gauge's from an R32 GT-R and put them in his Ford Laser TX-3 Turbo.

looks stupid but works well, lol.

elchango, those are some sweet looking gauges on ebay. Anyone know how complicated it is to install? I gotta find some for my prelude now...

Edit: Not to take this thread off topic, but since its already about gauges...

I found some for my prelude:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/HONDA...spagenameZWDVW

The only thing is all the ones I found are for auto, I have a stick shift. What is the diff in gauges? Looks the same, the only difference I see is mine says premium fuel only, that one says unleaded.

If it looks tight to you do it. A camry and lexus are basically the same thing ones just american based.

Yes I know how to install them. I'll post the link on how to install them later. It's not as hard as you think.

[EDIT] Sorry guys...it looks like the website that was hosting the diy walkthrough (that featured step by step pics) got hacked. I'll search for another one. I think I want to do that to my Civic now, once I get the Si Gauges.
