What most people do is get the cluster from the EX, which has a tach. You could possibly move the odometer ahead/back to match your current reading. I do not believe you can just take the odometer part from your tach to the new one.
Could be wrong, just never heard of anyone doing so.

you remove 4 screws from the back, take apart the whole odometer area, and swap it with the new/old one........ but make sure you get a cluster that doesn't have the auto thinggie ( I did and I have stick) so, but it works :D

jeisai: Yeah actually it should be just that easy. When I took apart my buddies 1993 Honda Civic Si Coupes interior right before Christmas so he could have it painted, I had to remove his gauge cluster. Now his car is an automatic, and already has a tachometer but the tachometer is hooked up through the three plugs in the back of the gauge cluster.

But since your going from no tachometer to having one, it may not be that easy, so you can always buy it, and test it. Just uninstall your old gauge cluster, plug in the new gauge cluster, but leave it unbolted from the dash, reconnect your battery, start the car, and see if it worked. If it didn't then your going to have to take it to your local performance shop, and have them wire up the tachometer. I'm not a DIY kind of guy, I mean sure I can do somethings, but I'd rather let the professionals do it, instead of me fucking it up. :lol:
