the low and mid series are straight swap in EB2-ED with the addition of the oil sender, the high series cluster from EA-EB1 require extra wiring

the earlier cluster can be fitted to later car with the addition of the smart lock light just by drilling the PCB to accept it at the back, the front lower display for warning lights must also be changed but you dont have to you just wont see the smart lock light flash

speaking about pink wires, there are a few lose not connected looms near the master cylinder there is a single pink wire there could i be that lucky?
obviously better equiped models have stuff connected to these lose connections, they havent been disconected either,
