TD5 vs. Old-style Dash LHD Conversion

Could use some help. I'm considering doing a LHD conversion, and unsure whether to go with the TD5 dash or try to source the old-style LHD.

All things being equal, I prefer the TD-5, but I currently have the Mudd UK dash on the old-style and really like having the EGT, Boost and clock gauges. My concern with going to the TD5 dash is I'd lose those extra gauges. I'm not a huge fan of the Mudd Mini Pod being put on top of the TD5 dash, either.

Only thing I can think of is doing the Mudd UK Gauge Pod underneath the center dash (pictured), but I have AC installed, so ...

Any ideas?

Why can't you keep the Mud console with the LHD conversion?

I priced out the LHD conversion with TD5 dash. Came out to over $8k in parts alone.

Al- I love the MUDD UK dash but I don't think it could be used with the td5 dash. So, if I'm going to stay with MUDD dash I'd have to stay old-style dash. Maybe I'm wrong.

Jon- That's a chunk but I'm motivated to find some parts used here and there.

Next three months will be a big transformation for the beast!

Gotcha but I thought one of the benefits of the mud was that it was so adaptable to any application & clearly a lot cheaper than the td5

Definitely. That is the advantage of it but I wanted to get a pulse on any other options out there, too.
