Spotted a mistake already - ive mentioned wiring in the illumination line but not said where to get it from

There will be more than a few changes to the guide im sure. I havent got the MFD back in my own car yet, and when I do, i want to try and get g-force and steering angle working.

I put the MFD back into my R33 today, and it seems to be working fine. Ive now got Injector Duty and G-Force working I also think I know the wiring needed to get steering angle working, but haven't tried it as its not one im interested in.

Oil temp is definately not working, R34 sensor needed, along with water temp and exhaust temp. Everything else is there.

I'll update my MFD guide ASAP for anybody interested in the conversion.

One thing I need to know though, are MFDs supposed to re-start when you start the car. Mine comes on with the ignition, then re-starts when I start the engine, which seems to kill the diagnostic mode so I cant get it to not show gauges that arent working

This sure is truly a unique mod. Can't wait to see the full and finsihed product! Ever think of putting some kind of polished badge/stamp were the vents use to be? Or some guages maybe? Unless the backs of them would get in the way just as much as the vents did.

Yep they do re-start due to the voltage drop when cranking.

I got round it by doing the hold button thing whilst starting the engine, then when you get into diagnostic, leave it there and go for a drive, when the temps get to the threshold they will register, also speedo signal will be picked up when you drive.

Instead of Mellers conversion where he has smoothed over the front vents, ive left them in, so the dash looks stock, but they dont work. Im happy with the look for now

Thanks Dean, I was wondering if I had hooked up my powers wrong, but if its supposed to go off thats good. I'll try and get it into diagnostic mode next time I drive it.

Once again, thanks for the hosting Meller.

If anyone decides to take on this conversion and needs pointers just give me a shout.

stunning work. i would love to see pics of the finished dash myself. just curios tho....has anyone tried fitting the R34 gtr dash into the r33 gtr to do the conversion that way? if it would fit that would look pretty good i think.

Thanks for the comments guys. I havent taken any pics of the finished product, I will do next time the car is out. Its gotten positive comments from everyone thats seen it and most think its a standard item which is cool as thats the look I was going for.

Funnily enough, I was thinking about a whole R34 dash conversion yesterday. If I ever see one come up for sale I may try it out. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

but do you think the r34 dash is similar enough to the r33 to get it to fit in pretty easily?

the r34 dash is wider and longer so i wont fit whitout a lot of modifications, i tried mesauring and so on and would need a lot of fiberglass work to make it fit.

Yeh I looked into it in a bit more detail after one did come up in the for sale section on here the other day...A few guys on SAU looked into it, and fibreglassing work would be needed, as well as fitting some R34 doorcards to align with the dash, and also the mileage counter is electrically driven. A lot of work for not a lot of gain, when the MFD can be placed onto the r33 dash anyway.
