Well yes, the original guages won't work, However, I think you can still fit other guages in that cluster. I don't know, personally I would not even think of putting guages where the glovebox is on a Mercedes. There are companies that make custom guages, you can fit digital in any space, that is for sure.NüR-SPEC said:for starters, he's transplanting a chevy engine.. so obviously, the factory gueages are useless. the issue in debate here is where to lcate them.
@ Civic, well even if you decide to go with the glove box, the gauges aren't level, this is clear. I would redo them if I was you, but hey, it's your car.CivicTuning2 said:well i cant put it ont eh A pillar because the vin number is there is covering it up or removing it is illegal. the original cluster wont work nor will it fit any small guages. in the little cluster i have to fit a tack speedo and all the warning messages. the glovebox is the only thing that i can put them without really destroying the car. if i drill in to the dash the car is ruined, the glovebox i can just replace. plus it has a rally look to it and it might soon need a rollcage. 11sec and under in the quarter mile needs a role cage
