Yup, A digital NX1600 cluster in a 89 240 coupe. It was hard, believe me, but I did it just to put away rumors that it couldn't be done, and to shut a few people up. The wiring was the hard part, Thanks to Fireblade RX-7 for all the wiring help, dude your the best. I didn't need to use the NX speed sensor, or the temp sensor, because I have a twin cam swap with a 89 single cam tranny, and I guess the 89 tranny speed sensor puts out the same pulses per revolution as a NX speed sensor. But any way here are the pics.

The rough harness right after it was made

Modifying the cluster garnish mounting plate thingy

Had to cut away plastic at the base and the top of where the cluster sits because it the cluster is so tall it was hitting the bottom and the top of the cluster pod.

Yup, It was available in the 1.6L versions here in the states, called the NX1600.

Thanks guys, glad you like it!

I am not sure about the interchangeability of the NX clusters, but you might have to do some wiring to make it work. What year is her 100NX, and does it have a tachometer in the current gauge cluster?

As long as the speed sensor is compatible (2 wires, pulsed signal, X number of pulses per revolution or whatever) you can make any 4 cylinder cluster work.

Its a 94 and yes it has Tacho too. If it can be made to fit an S13 I'm sure I can make it fit the NX

Yea it'll fit and mount up perfectly, all the B13 and NX clusters mount the same way and are shaped the same way, so you'll have no problem, just some minor wiring. Hope it works out!

So, so nice! I think that's probably the coolest older digital cluster I've seen in a car!

I think JNC needs a digital clusters thread :D

I can think of

AE86
Starion
NX1600

what others are there?

Any idea what it would take to put one in a P10? :P

An electronic speed sensor.... And maybe a fuel level sensor, and temp sensor that matches the ones on the NX1600/240sx.

How about we post pics in a separate thread of each cluster so peeps can see what they are missing?

Nice work! I love the look of it, now just need the heads up display and a Silvia front clip!

Love the wheels as well!
