You can use your dash you just have to swap the wiring you clutch should all be the same the accelerator petal and cable will swap for the electronic one

Yeah well hopefully the local stealership wont rape when they do it, but if all goes well I will start ripping the motor out but this damn hurricane is screwing with the weather

Update: It has been raining for 2 days so no work has been done on the beast and I cant take pics in the rain. But hopefully some stuff can get done. My whole reason for this swap was the D60 up front and while taking the motor mounts out I discovered that it has about an inch of play between the pinion gear and ring gear so I guess I will be rebuilding that shortly as well

So I was pondering this what harness needs to be swapped from the dash all of the connectors on the fire wall look the same as the ones on the 95 that the motor is coming out of

The IDI dash harness will be "missing" a few things that the PSD harness has, like the OBD connector and the BAP sensor. The firewall connector faces are the same, just more or less wires in different slots depending on application.
