MazdaSpeed White Faced Insturment Cluster and RE Amemiya White Faced Boost Gauge

MazdaSpeed

A clean look that's different.

Iíve always loved white faced gauges. Iíve always preferred MazdaSpeed (or factory generated) aftermarket parts. So when I spotted a Mazdaspeed white faced gauge cluster, with black chrome accent rings, with respectfully low mileage for a decent price I couldnít resist. They are quite rare and when new very expensive. Any performance improvement? Nope. Fewer indicated miles than my original cluster? Nope. But after installation they sure do look nice. The speedometer is in Kilometers per hour vs. miles per hour so it does take some getting used to. For instrument cluster removal and reinstallation see HERE


My original R1 dash. Oooo! Only 8010 miles! Dash cluster looking kinda scruffy.


Comparing the old with the new. Note the black chrome trim rings on the MS cluster. Had to swap a few bulbs that were missing.

RE Amemiya White Faced Boost Gauge

Loved the original RE boost gauge but needed a white faced gauge to match the new MS dash. The white faced RE gauges is rare which I like. I found this one on eBay, shipped from Malasia, but it came with a nice RE column mount so I was able to swap that one in also. A nice improvement over the previous gauge that did not light up.


In the beginning there was the white faced SPI. A great gauge. Next was the black RE gauge that had no illumination bulbs. Looked great with the black cluster.


Comparing the Pettit column gauge housing (fiberglass) with the RE housing (plastic). Note the differing location for the turn stalk. It's the same on the other side since it's made for RHD cars.


One more time: the final combination - that works!
