OK guys here's what I've done. I have an 81 Caddy, I swaped in an 84 GTI cluster so I would have the tach and 115mph spedo (not like I'm gonna need 115mph, lol)
Anyway everything worked out great except the oil light does not work. Before you say it, yes the oil light worked on the old cluster, already checked that. Does anyone have some insight on this?

Re: Guage cluster swap question (Supercharged VR6)

That should have worked. I did that particular swap several years back in my 81 Caddy (84 GTI cluster)- everything worked afterwards, it was just plug and play.
(Wish I could say the same about the Scirocco 16V to Caddy guage swap...)
Maybe a broken trace on the GTI cluster? If it works with the Caddy nacelle, your field wiring is intact...
