no one seems to be exactly sure and the people who have done the svt swap never say if their gauges are correct or not.

here are 3 links i found saying they might not be correct:

http://forums.focaljet.com/interior-...vt+tach+speedo
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...+cluster+zetec

here are a couple that say it will work, just not if they will be correct:

I calibrated the needles today using the test mode. I put the speedo on while going 50, and the tach needle on at 3500. The speedo seems to be dead on, but I didn't take it over 70. The tach is a little off. I idle at about 800 and it was reading around 400-500. I don't think its that big of a deal.

Well I put ti on at 3500 so its accurate there and the farther I move away from that either way, it gets farther off.

Well I was doing it on my way to work and I tried several times to get it on while going 35, but I couldn't get it right, and by that point I had to get on the highway.
