I've got the s**t with the dog ugly XG dash and wanting to know if an EA-ED dash will fit? Also what wiring mods (if any) need to be done.

are you talking about the whole dash or just the cluster?? Becuase XG's have the same clusters as EA-ED's :?

dude the clusters for xg are exactly da same as for EA-ED. Just change ur low series to a high series or mid series.most people go mid series becuase there i s a lot less f**k around to do. Mid series is basically unplug old plug in new.only thing you will have to do is put an oil sender in because with the low series cluster u just have a switch. If you wanted to put a high series cluster in theres a lot of f**k around with door sensors and s**t...i think...

yup tacho will definately work as will 3 of the 4 guages (fuel, water temp and battery voltage) The oil pressure guage will either show full or none no inbetween. So u cant see if your oil pressure is dropping until its all gone. the way to fix that is to go to ur local ford dealer or to a wreckers and get a SENDER make sure its not a SWITCH tho
