Is this even possible? I was wondering if it's a straight swap to drop in the deluxe digital dash for our cars in place of the analog. I know they are all electric dashes. Be cool if that harness just plugs and plays.

Sorry.... not just plug and play. First, the oil press, temp, and fuel senders are different for the digital dash. The tach will be calibrated for either a V6 or V8, and I dont know if there is any easy way to recalibrate for a 4 cyl. The "hockey stick" bar graph tach is also VERY slow response, and the RPM increments are huge... like 250 RPM steps. The bar graph oil press and temp gauges (you can only see one at a time), are also very poor resolution... only like8 or 10 LED bars for the whole range.
