any first gen (I don't know about the SVT...) cluster should work. I did this swap several years ago because my LX did not come with a tach.

The only issue is that the new tach will display the millage from the old car unless it is reflashed. I know dealers can do this, but when I looked into it, the ones near me said they would only do the reflash if I bought the tach new from them.

So I got a used one off ebay with similar milage and swapped them. should be a how to on here somewhere if you search for it.
