i'm not too familiar with 7th gens... so someone else might give you more detailed info... but i think that if you do swap, the milage would be messed up at the very least. since the 7th gen odometers are not mechanical, you cant manipulate them like u could older civics.

I'm gonna say it wouldn't physically fit. The 7th gen clusters are taller then 6th gen

im almost positive that it wont work due to fitment and plug/wire issues. i know that the 6th gens could be swapped with no problem, but i think the 7th gens are totally diff. from eachother.

you would have to look at the two of them side by side to be able to tell, as far as mileage goes just get an Si cluster with more mileage than your car and wait until you hit the right mileage to put it in and take pictures of both clusters together at the time of the installation

thats a good idea... never crossed my mind.

if you're not worried about the milage matching, or you can do what FerioSpeed suggested above, i would think it should work. but i cannot say for certain as i have not had experience with 7th gen clusters. sorry.

2001 si ? Never ever offered in us.
99-00 si = 6th gen.
02+ si = 7thgen.

Gauge cluster size is different, wiring hareness should be similar.
You can do it, but not worth it imo.

Stock gauge cluster is good, why change it.
