Default Dash cluster

I was wondering if there is a more complete dash cluster that might fit into a 2000 Camry??

I would really like a oil pressure and volt gauges.

And as my Tach needs work I was considering another cluster over all.

And yes I have done such changes in a number of cars like one I am doing now, a 98 Mustang cluster into a 1000 Mercury Grand Marques...

Have not found one and no reference to either gauge in shop info.

I was thinking of a earlier cluster or even another make of car/truck.

I doubt your going to find another instrument cluster that you can swap out for the stock one you have, especially if you want oil pressure gauge. Your best bet is to get an aftermarket gauge and then fit where you want with some customization.

Well there is this DIY link:

Camry to Lexus ES3000 Cluster, it is a little cooler, but still lacks the two gauges I wanted. And it does take a lot of rewiring.

And I would rather have one that does not use electroluminescent.

Interesting find but as you state a lot rewiring.

Wonder if you could modify a stock cluster. If no room for analog gauges perhaps some kind of vertical and narrow LED gauge. Could obtain a unit from a parts car to experiment with.

I may look into doing the same thing I am doing with my 2000 Mercury: A Mustang cluster...

How to convert a fake oil pressure gauge to workin - Crownvic.net

Have to check out if the Camry is still analog or now stepper motor driven...Ford when to stepper motors in 2000.

From what I found on repairing the Tach I believe it is analog.
