no those look to be the same, the problem is the 3MZ belt tensioner is slightly different so it would be in the way of the PS pump mount. i need to find the bracket that bolts to the head first. i think that will help me line things up.

the 8k rpm on the celica is on the 1 oclock position, and on the other is on the 5 oclock position.

theoritically if you just swap the faces.

when the tach hits 6k rpm in real time, it will show 8k rpm on your swapped cluster, if you go beyond that then it will show the needle floating in neverland.

unless there is calibration involved, is there any?

You can use a Dakota Digital or MSD tach adapter to make that work without swapping tachs.

Kurt is right, you cant just change the faces, you need to change the electronics. I also got the gauge cluster in my purchase with the engine. that is much cheaper than having to buy and wire in an MSD box

so you swapped faces and the elecrtronics? im not clear on what you did really and how itll give a correct rpm reading..

if you use the stock gauge and electronics itll read 50% higher... i know from experience... redline on my v6 is past where the gauge stops moving.

i believe there is a resistor you can change to get it at the right calibration.

no i just changed the electronic board. they have integrated circuits on them that are designed to receive a 4 cylinder pulse or a V6 pulse. the Camry face wouldn't fit in the celica cluster.

did that board include the motor that moves the needle? if so then its still calibrated for the camry gauge face and would still be off, correct?... unless im missing something entirely
