    ok i will, another question since i have a JDM b16 in my car and the cluster is from a HX, would the needle for the rpm get stuck since i could rev my car up to 8500. And he HX cluster only goes up to 8k. or would the needle jus bounce? i'm asking this question because i dont kno if i should put this cluster in yet because i'm thinking about putting the Si cluster.
