higher the mcd = brighter the illumination.

if you are going 'plug and play' with your leds, you'll need six # 194 leds.

You won't get a different color out of it unless you take the cluster apart and wet sand the green color coating off the factory overlay.

Here's a thread that should cover those dept's...

And here's a link that should help you as well....as we used it...Griggs' also has how-to's on doing your switches to led as well...
