what clocks will work with an egt ecu?

I'm fitting a primera egt engine in place of my ga14de (p1), and will be using the egt ecu, what dials will work with this ecu? Thanks for any help.

eGt clocks i would have thought! failing that, p1 GTi clock as they have the mechanical odometer
 
think you would have to strip down the unit and try and put all the dials and wiring etc from the eGT dials into the almera dash. not sure if you could use the almera dash and change the redline to 7500, think its only a red tape on the dial face anyway but i dont know how easy that would be to remove

dont think they'll fit to be honest. A quick google search turned up a pic of markbuts dash :D http://www.primera-egt.com/interior2.jpg

The warning lights etc. look to be in different places and the clocks appear to be a different shape than the almera.

I'd try your own clock for starters just to check everything works (mileage ticking over, revs/speed etc.) then get some P1 GTi clocks as the top speeds and redline should be the same, although dont quote me on that.

I believe the eGT (All Primera GTs in fact) actually redlines at 7.5k and the clocks go to 9k, whereas the GTi redlines at 7k and goes to 8k.

I'd imagine the speedo mechanism is the same on the two cars though and at the end of the day, I don't suppose it matters where the red mark is on the tacho, you know your limits, I'd assume being a GT engine it'll rev to 7.5 fine hehe ;)

p10 eZX/eGT redline at 7500, p11 GT redlines at 7000 the same as the n15 GTi
Ah okay, they do go to 9 though hehe, my mate has a P11 GT, I want his engine! lol

Oy, that's my car :p

Here's more pics of a P10 eGT gauge cluster out of the car. This one is a later one with no oil pressure gauge. It has red needles and an airbag light.

Mine has the oil pressure gauge, white needles and no airbag light.
