Hey guys i messd up my speedometer when i installed my white face gauges from importintellgence so i wanted to get a new cluster anyway..So what im curious about is What clusters match up with mine I have 98 sentra gxe..I want the 200sx clusterwith the white faces , but i was wondering if its possible for me to get the se-r model which goes up to 140 instead of 120 like my gxe, or do i have to stick with something that goes up t 120

yes, an SE-R cluster will fit in and work just fine in your car, I can't 100% guarantee my wiring diagram will work perfectly (on my webpage), but the chart still will be useful. I like the SE-R one better b/c of the higher tachometer/speedometer and better aftermarket such as reverse indiglo.

BTW, the 98 SE is the same as any SE-R gauge (b/c it's a 2.0L) and it also has the titanium metallic gauges.

I'd say just go with the 200SX SE cluster. Chances are very slim that you'll ever get up to or above 120MPH anyways, so why worry about having a speedo that goes any further? I know all it would do is make me wish I could go faster, but can't. Plus, I think the swap will be simpler with the non-SE-R cluster.

I want to switch mine out with a 200sx SE cluster because I want a tach. I know how to change out the clusters but how do I get the tach on the new cluster to work?

I have a 200 SE and I want the se-r cluster so I can have the reverse el gauges. So all I have to do is get the se-r reverse gauges and put them on??? How do you calibrate the gauges so you know how fast you are really going?

as long as both speedometers go up to 130MPH, yes this will work. You first have to open up both clusters, then you remove the 4 screws behind the speedo in each cluster. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THE NEW FACE AND THE NEW LIGHT DISTRIBUTER MUST STAY IN THE NEW CLUSTER TO AVOID ANY CONFLICT WITH THE AIRBAG LIGHT, IN OTHER WORDS, YOU MUST REMOVE YOUR NEEDLES. Please email me, and I'll go further into detail on this matter, and I'll tell you how to SAFELY remove the speedometer needles.

Hey,
Either cluster will work (SE/SE-R) as long as your car came with a tach. It's just plug and play. If your car didn't come with a tach, use 1997 GA16DE's diagram to convert the harnesses. I reccomend the SE-R cluster since it has the security light and comes with more face options.

Seth

P.S. If you aren't going to use your cluster anymore since you 'messed it up', could I have your tach needle? The orange one. I have a speedo needle in orange, just I need the matching (factory) orange tach one.

Hey,
Didn't know he wanted the odo swap. Then you can't get an SE-R cluster at all, or reverse EL's. I say just get the new (used) odo and keep track of the original mileage. In the event that this car is sold just inform the buyer.

Seth

As you all know/remember, this is my 98 GXE:

The pic is a little old, I've since thrown in a matching (Blaupunkt) HU and a 5 disc in dash changer.

Here's a simple rule, to avoid any unnecessary stress, please search for a cluster that has a similar miles on it as your original. If you can't find one at first, keep trying, I guarantee you will find one close to your mileage.

There is absolutely no known safe way to change the mileage on the new odometer, and swaping the odometer is not recommended either. Swaping the odometer means taking both clusters apart and taking both needles off. Why sacrafice your old and your new clusters to such a risky operation? and BTW, it is IMPOSSIBLE to swap odometers between a 1.6 to a 2.0 cluster. the odometer is one piece with the speedometer motor and shaft and being that a 1.6 goes up to 130mph and a 2.0 goes to 150, you won't have an accurate readout ever again.

another thing I want to mention b/c I still hear certain questions on this. as long as you have a b14, you can replace your cluster with any other b14 cluster whether it's SE-R, SE, GXE, whatever, it will work. The 1.6 (w/tach) and the 2.0 (tach standard) both have the same wiring diagram. This means, you can plug an SE-R into an SE without any wiring modification. And of course, if you don't have a tach and you're going to a tach, you have to swap all the wires like in my diagram.
