Yes, it does matter. You put in a new instrument cluster also?

yes, you need a new GTS ECU...they are different engines, and thus will need a different engine management system, you'll also need a new tranny (the GTS 6 speed), and posibly motor mounts, aside from a few other things>>>> this might help...go to trial's website (trial.co.jp)...they have this kit...(GT)1ZZ to (GTS) 2ZZ conversion kit $3081.85 (computer not included)
Includes used 2zz engine, necessary mounts and harnesses.

Not just a gauge face, but the whole instrument cluster itself.

dude 3 grand is expensive as hell. i wouldn't pay more that 1800 for the motor and tranny. you would need the ECU, wiring harness, gauge cluster, and motor mounts.

check http://www.car-parts.com you'll find good prices there.
