I removed the green filter off mine. The display is the blueish green. I'm going to install smoked piece of plexi to keep the color.

It is not what I would call a trivial mod. However, if you have time and basic do-it-yourself skills, you can do it.

John went above and beyond to develop and document the EATC conversion. Read it several times and follow his recommendations.

It took a while to research and write, I can tell you that. Thanks for the plug, Bob!

The 96 and 97 units are preferred in the blue because they have the vehicle network hookup to the OBD-II system to get engine temp and vehicle speed to allow a more intelligent control of the heat/AC.
