Default Main Instrument Gauge (Combination meter) Swap to 2017 Nismo Gage Swap

So currently I own a 2010 40th anniversary Z. Been slowly converting my vehicles interior silver trim to the 2015+ Nismo Gun metallic trim. I am currently working on the the main Gauge Cluster behind the steering wheel and was able to source a 2017 Nismo replacement.

My question to you all is it a direct swap plug and play? From what I read on nicoclub.com’s FSM files it looks to be a direct swap. I know the concern was making sure the gauges was both sport model, manual gear indicator gauges. Has anyone attempted to replace there Instrument gauges with a newer model Z parts? And I’m presuming mileage reading of the vehicle will be reading of what the ECU is sending to the new Nismo unit?

Thanks in adavance. I’ve researched for a couple days without any luck.

I know on the 350Z instrument clusters, the mileage is stored in the cluster itself. I am guessing the 370Z is the same. It can be modified. It takes something like this to do the change.

Best of luck on your conversion effort.

If this does work and you have the ability to look CAN bus traffic, I would be extremely grateful if you could get me a bus trace from this.

The mileage is stored in the cluster on the 370z also.

why would you swap your instrument cluster with a nismo one when you own a 40th anniversary?
