The digi dash itself is an easy R&R, it's the harness that supports it that
takes time. It's the whole dash harness as I recall it. From one or two fuse
box connections to cluster to fan. You'd need to pull the speed sensor off the
trans and install a speedo cable in it's place; also replace the dimmer switch
with the analog version. Plus one or two items I've forgotten. It's a "bolt-
in" swap, ie no cutting or splicing required, but it is time consuming. A
great chance to get intimate with your dash! Plus, if it ever breaks down, you
don't need to buy the whole shebang.
