Thanks for the tip.

When I went shopping for my coupe GT almost 10 years ago, I remember test
driving a Commemorative Edition GT, graphite, lipstick red leather and the
digital dash. On the test drive with the dealer demonstator, the digital
dash just turned off, then back on. I asked what was going on and the
salesman said, not to worry, it just happens once in a while. Needless to
say, my graphite 86 GT has an analog dash.
My inquiry is, has any one updated to the multifunction computer, in a car
which didn't have one? I have thought of it, even looked at the wiring
diagrams, but never went any further.
