yeah the SVT cluster will only plug n play on 00-04. there probaly is no adapter as what you are doing is not very popluar. have you checked to see if there is the same amount of wires or the same colors? what you would need is a wireing diagram of each cluster and match them up that way.

x2 on selling the cluster. As stated, it will only work in an '00-'04, but even then there are problems. The electro-luminescent backlighting control is integrated into the aux. gauge cluster. Also, the aux. gauges won't work with a standard Focus because they are made to only work with the SVT ECU. Some people have used aftermarket power inverters to light the e-l panel for the main cluster, but it's a little bit of a chore.
