Default SpeedHut Gauge Swap

New to this site, and I think I posted this in the wrong area first go around, so I apologize if this is a double post

I have a recent BDR, 2016 Build, and I want to upgrade the factory gauges with a set of Speedhut ones. I have installed Speedhut Gauges on another cobra and absolutely loved them.

Does anyone have experience with this? Is the existing harness easy to modify to accept the Speedhuts? Since its a new car and still under warranty, I really don't want to go hacking up my car if its a big undertaken

Appreciate any help on this

I can't say enough about Speedhut.
Tom Kirkham introduced me to them for my Super Snake gauge cluster (I wanted matching Kirkham gauges).
And I went back when I wanted my boost gauges refaced and reprogrammed with a lower psi range. Very reasonable and fast, friendly service.

I can't speak for BDR wiring harneses, but i did use Speedhut gauges for my build. Speedhut was very flexible during the display face layout process and their gauges went in and worked flawlessly from the the first start. The gauges in my Speedhut cobra package were supplied with temp and pressure sending units and sheilded pre-terminated cables. They provide sheilded cables to reduce impact of interference from ignition and other sources. Analog signals are typically transmitted in cable with shielding grounded at one end only.
I would advise that you use the cable supplied with each gauge.
