Installing climate control is NOT plug and play with only the fascia.

You need to add sensors, motors and various other crap.
I've done 3 conversions and its pretty easy.
ABS model cars make life easier too, and you have to remove the whole dash, other than that, its a whole days work and well worth the result.

Parts required are:
Dash Loom
BEM
Light switch
Blend Door Motor
Fan Motor Regulator
Sunload sensor (dash)
Ambient Sensor (bumper bar)
Vacuum solenoid block
Climate Control Module
You'll also need to mod the Cluster too for the Variable light dimming

You can install them without changing the dash loom, but its the HARD way to do it and WILL take longer.

Thanx for the trip computer info. thats pretty easy. done an ea a few yrs ago and worked gr8 but more work than the ef. as per the climate control is it easier just to get someone to fit it? and anyone got an idea of the cost?

It'll cost you a fortune!

Get more friendly with people on here and they might even offer assistance!

In fact I know of 3 people with complete CC kits, dcstraight, arm79 and myself

tells you a number of things
fuel in tank, temp, average speed instant usage etc.
you'll use it once maybe twice and never use it again.

theres heaps of stuff here:

My EL Futura's had a climate control and trip computer conversion. If you like, you are more than welcome to come and have a look at how it's been done if that's going to be any help.
