Default NB2 JDM "6-speed" gauge cluster

After I sold a customized JDM cluster in a previous thread, I was asked to make another (2, actually), but both people flaked :(

So, up for sale is an NB2 6-speed gauge cluster with the circuit board I designed to make the speedometer work.



It has 6 o'clock needle rest positions, a higher redline, "6-Speed" text, and a much cleaner speedometer layout.

The NB2 gauge cluster is quite rare, and this is the later version that has a CEL on the tachometer.

To recap, compared to a JDM cluster that hasn't been modified, this cluster has the following features:
-Dimmer for gauge illumination
-Cruise control light in the top left corner (No cruise control on RHD cars)
-Speedometer that reads as indicated MPH

This cluster also relocates the ABS light to the top right of the cluster.





The Sweep-O-Tron board allows proper scaling of the speedometer while enabling you to keep your existing odometer.

The install is incredibly simple with no modification needed to your wiring harness except a single T-tap to read the speed signal. It's totally reversible.





I set the cluster up so that it reads actual mph (it's a 180mph speedometer), but I can switch it back to kph if you want.

It reads slightly high (2-3mph) up to about 60mph, but from my testing its actually more accurate than the stock speedometer. It's very easy to tune it to match your GPS speed perfectly with a flat head screwdriver.



It works on both an NB1 or NB2. It's totally plug and play after swapping in your odometer.
It includes all of the bulbs, the T tap for the harness, and no odometer (use your own!).

Asking $230 shipped for the NB2 cluster.

If anyone is interested, I also have an NB1 cluster with the same customizations for $170 shipped. I'll do a proper listing when I have the time.

I'm interested in the NB1 cluster! How hard/easy is it to remove my odometer and install in this cluster? Will my odometer continue reading where it left off, and will it calculate my mileage in miles?

Yup, the odometer will continue reading where you left off, and will continue to count up properly in miles as with your original cluster. Odometer function will be totally unaffected.

The odometer is super easy to uninstall. With the cluster out, first remove the two connectors by gently prying with a small flat head screwdriver. Then remove the odometer backlight and the two indicator lights directly above it and pop the flex circuit off the plastic stud so it's loose.
Then, remove the two phillips head screws on each side and slide the circuit on the bottom out of the little slots. Then the odometer unit should pop right out from the back of the cluster.

Awesome, doesn't sound too difficult at all!

These are amazing. On the board you built and installed, is it tunable or preset to the change from kph->mph?

The board is tunable, it will work with both the speedometer and tachometer. Theres a screw on a trimpot that you turn with a small flathead screwdriver to adjust the scale.

does the oil pressure guage work as is should ? in the pic its 0psi and and your doing 30 mph NOT 30 KPH this along with the KG Works bezel and modified oil pressure and water temp gauges so they arent "dummy guages" . theyde be near perfect. and i only say near perfect because im toying with the idea of putting in a multi guage ( cant remember the brand) but that would go in place of the water temp. someone here has it ... cleans and few gauges up and i likes it alot.

Don't know why I want this so much. Maybe because all my other gauge faces are white and this would fit in so well. On the fence right now.

The scale is adjusted so that the speedometer reads as actual miles per hour rather than kilometers per hour. It's easy to put it back into kph mode.
Also, the oil pressure gauge is reading wrong because the car I tested the cluster in has an NA sender, so the gauge reads in reverse.
The gauge in the JDM cluster is, unfortunately, the same dummy gauge as the USDM gauge.

So, here's my issue.
NB1 automatic that now has a 6spd installed. Will the nb2 work and what other things will i need? Even if the nb2 cluster sells, i will likely pay you to do another.

Yup, it will work in an NB1 without issue!
The one in pictures actually sold, but I have all the parts to make a second one ( I just didnt think there'd be interest)

PM me and I can send pictures.

Yes, both shown here are sold.
I have most of the parts for another NB2 cluster, but it isn't built yet. If you are interested you'll have to place a deposit so I can source the remaining parts.
PM me.
