yeah i have a 2003 se 5spd without a tach, so i just bought a cluster w/tach off ebay. Lol. Just letting you know if you push your engine above 6k and shift, you tend to loose a lot of power cause your car lifts off the ground, so i find it best to shift at or around 5500, its the best of both worlds.

Are the gauge clusters for the same years plug and play?
