Does anyone know if the gage cluster from an Omega can be installed in the Catera? The computer screen is pretty sweet...

Doubt it. That sweet Omega screen has to talk to the Catera computers and they don't talk the same language. And the same goes for the gauges.

Yep I believe the OMEGA uses a CAN Bus system.... and in the us when they had to develop the engine for the american standards they decided to use their own KWP2000 Protocols... so they are two different beasts...

Euro cars are 10.8:1 compression, while the US ones are 10.0:1 Thats probably why there is a difference in power as well.
