BadSSE is on a distinguished road
Default Cluster Swap

Does anybody know if a Cluster from a 1993 SSE will plug right in to a 1992 SSEi? I know it'* stupid but I'm going all out sleeper. I've changed all the emblems and you can't really see the charger, but the first thing everybody does is look at the dash and see the boost gauge. I have a 1993 parts car so I won't be wasting money. I don't want to do any wiring so I'm hoping its plug and play. Thanks for the help.

That boost gauge is usually your first and only indication of a problem. I suggest installing an aftermarket gauge somewhere hidden.

Can you please elaborate as to what problems it'll show? I'm not sure it'* as important as we are making it sound.
