    I don't know if 90 has the same dash as my 88, but there were about 10, 194 bulbs in mine.

    I don't believe all of them are the same size to tell you the truth. Well, same size, but different watts.

    Of course, don't know which is which, but things like E-brake warning light may be like 1 watt more than the other lights that are there just to provide light to the cluster in general.

    What I have noticed with LED's is that they are brighter in the spot that the bulb is located, but the light does not disperse evenly, so you get a brighter spot around the Led, but dimmer as you get away from the bulb. I have never tried it in a cluster before though, it would be interesting to see how they work, I'd love to make mine a little brighter.

    There are 3 different bulbs that you could have. It is one of the 3. The bulb numbers are: 194, 894, 896. The 894 you can get in color.
