Hi guys
I am thinking of putting a full Instrument Cluster (one with all the gauges) in my EF GLi
I know with the XE it was all plug and play all i had to do was buy the engine oil pressure sender

If you are changing a low series cluster to one with the amp meter and oil pressure gauge it should be a straight swap apart from having to change the oil pressure sender unit. So to answer you question, yes.

(just to elaborate, it is NOT a straight swap if you intend on changing your cluster to a fairlane/ltd cluster... bit of electrical work involved...)

Yea mate its basically the same as the XE. Just need an oil pressure sender and also a low coolant sensor. Plug her in and away you go.
If you wanted a Fairlane/LTD cluster, they would take a bit more effort to install.

cheers

Have a read of this. There is actually a little more involved. There is a resistor you need to solder into the cluster for the lights to work properly.
