Nope - cannot plug straight in.

A couple of issues.
They were notoriously unreliable.
They require a different Speedo Sender (pretty sure the pulse count is different), but changing that will break your current ECU as well if its an auto
None of the plugs line up, or are even similar.

Have you thought about using an NC Fairlane Cluster? - If you really want Digital. The Door Indicators are a little tricky, but its much closer to the same connectors

Hello,

It wont be an easy swap. Your cluster was the same as I think the EA -D, so a sports type will be a better option. Have a look at Tech Docs Tab above, you should be able to find more info about a Cluster swap.

I understand. I only put it there because It was something Id done : I had an EFI 5.0 XF, with the NC Dash. Was quite unique ;0

Hmm. Another project in the past
