I had to share this with everyone. Just got my mc ss gauge cluster in the mail. Man is it clean. I didn't realize the speedo sticks further out than the rest of the gauges because I've never seen one in person Laughing
Btw I got this thing to my door for under $35! Shocked I couldn't pass it up.
I'm gonna be sending it off along with other stuff to hotsauce for an led conversion soon. Gonna go with white everything. Oh, and anybody use a 5mm led in the speedo instead of a 10mm? Just curious because that's what he has left and didn't want to have to buy a bunch more just for one.
More things I have sitting around that I need to put on that's to members here:
-gmpp rear sway
-moog rear endlinks
-3 gauge a pillar pod
-lsx grille
-bowtie for lsx grille

I've just been way to busy to work on my car. And school starts next week which just sucks up more time Mad
Also want to be working on my audio setup too. I think I'm gonna go with 3" full ranges on the dash and 6.5" or 8" mids in the door and a center console sub setup.
Oh and projector retrofit has been on my list forever but it's a lot of money

Found the answer finally:
Quote:
SS/LSS cluster is 9 bulbs for backlighting, LS is 7 bulbs for backlighting.

There is no need for a 10mm in either cluster. I did it as test when I first did the conversion, but it doesn't provide any better lighting than a 5mm

Climate controls is 6 LEDs for backlighting (use two 5mm for the temp sliders, and four 3mm for other backlights) and 4 LEDs (3mm) for the button indicators (2000-2003 only, 2004-2005 are surface mount LEDs)

http://www.bbengineer.com/cars.....rlight.htm

Yes, the LS cluster has 4 stepper motors, the base has 3 stepper motors and the SS/LSS has 6 stepper motors

$35? How many miles on it? That's cheap.

You should have gotten the LSS cluster it would have battery instead of boost. unless you got a SC in that 02 of yours

Monte SS cluster is the same as the LSS one. Only the Monte SS Supercharged version has the boost.
