Swap Stock Gauge Cluster for SVT Cluster

I picked up a SVT Gauge Cluster (the 160mph gauges) and was wondering if it's possible to put it in my ZX3 (the 140mph cluster). I understand that it should fit, but what else would be needed, if any, to be able to install and have accurately working gauges?

Thanks!

Any reason why or way to hook up the temp/oil gauges? Not exactly the most important for me, but I'd like to know just in case.

in order for the gauges to light up like in a SVT, the aux gauges must be plugged in. i believe the lighting is routed to them first in the oem harness.
