I know some members have done this swap and was wondering if either of my thoughts on this were valid or not.
Copy of post :
All of the info that I have managed to read on the topic states one thing pretty consistently and that is :
"Cut the plugs off the CRX side of the wiring harness and solder."
Is there a way around this?
Thought #1 -
- Re-use the plug on the Integra side of the cluster but solder extensions / pins onto the ends of the wires that plug into the CRX side of the harness.
Thought #2 -
- De-pin both the CRX side of the harness and the Integra side and put
the CRX wires into the Integra plug.
Will they fit?
Are either of these ideas feasible? I ask because I would like to be able to switch back to the stock cluster if I fell like and and not have it be as much of a nightmare to do so and deal with lots of soldering / de-soldering and short wires etc...
Just strip some of the insulation off a couple inches up from the CRX connectors, then solder in the wires from the integra clips. You'll have both clips so you can swap back to stock if you want. Only concern would be the extra space for the CRX clips.
