I was thinking about doing either the ep3 type r or dc5 type r cluster swap but it looks like soo much work plus i'm gonna go for a black and red theme for my interior and i think that my 03 cluster would look better with that setup! but it's definitely has been done before... i've searched!

I would rather buy the wire harness from Acura or grab one from a junk yard instead of custom fabbing plugs!

It has been done a member about 3 years ago did it. I forget who it was. The fit wasn't perfect but it looked pretty good.
