Electrical Question

So i changed the bulb behind my RPM gauge but i used a slightly higher wattage. Now the RPM gauge is brighter than everything else (And i like the brightness). If i were to change the rest of the instrument clusters with the same wattage, would i blow a fuse? any other problems that anyone could think of ? Any advice is appreciated.

How much higher? Blown fuse, melted wiring/light sockets happen if you get too out of line. In an engineered world fuses blow....in the real world, other things can happen. If it's not too out of line, I would say your safe. I'm guessing your within the realm of no issues.
