How did you get the odometer to accurately read your mileage? Did you get it recalibrated somewhere? This mod looks so nice btw, hopefully something I can do one day!

I just bought a complete 1999 Acura TL. I am going to part out everything I can (except most of the interior). Later this winter, I will tackle this dash swap on a 98, H22swap, Sedan. I hope the 99 cluster will work as I think it should. I'm also working on a custom gauge face as my H22 is a MT and therefore I do not want to see the gear shift indicator (may use it to display something else)

i think all the wiring should be plug n play from the 99, if i were you i would swap in all the electricals, that would give you heated seats and other extras :thumbsup: also make sure you swap the center ac box thing or else youll have problems.
i figured out after checking acurazine that i need the 99 cluster for everything to work lol
Curious to see how the dash swap goes when its from a 99 TL. Hope to see the progress and pics on this, good luck.

YES, it's all done and everything works like it should :) wiring was a major pain, going from manual heater control to full climate control means most every connector had to be repinned. I also found that the RPM was off by 2/3 since it is meant for a V6 and I have a 4 banger. Found a little device that adjusts this.

you may be able to swap the tach over.

I had a 91 Civic Dx that I fitted a 88 CRX Si tach to the cluster. 88-89 had a different cluster than 90-91, also the Civic Dx had no tach. It had water temp/fuel gauge in place of them, so I pulled them and installed custom gauges.

So basically, it might be bolt in, but you can fit anything.
