Replacing gauge cluster on my 2004 V6 Coupe

I am looking to swap the gauge cluster on my 04 V6 automatic coupe from a metric Canadian version, to an imperial US version, as I am importing the car to the US and want the big numbers and odometer in miles instead of kilometers.

Are 4 door clusters the same as 2 door clusters?
Will the mileage be stored in the cluster or in the ECM?
Will any re-programming be required?
Are all 03-05 clusters interchangeable?
Are 4cyl clusters the same as V6 clusters?

Thanks

Not sure how much help this would be, but I would give it a shot since no one else replied.

From looking on eBay the connectors on the back of the 2 door and 4 doors appear to be the same.

The mileage is stored on the actually cluster itself. Your Honda dealer can probably program the correct mileage for you.

They appear to be interchangeable, just avoid the 06-07 ones, those have a different connector on the back.

The biggest difference between the 4cyl and the 6cyl cluster would be the redline for the tachometer. The 6cyl have a higher redline than the 4cyl.

Other issues you might want to look at, would be if the different trim levels would have all the lights for your car and stuff.

Good luck!

Thanks, so what your saying is likely the 4 door cluster can be used in the coupe? I am going to ensure that all other items are the same (EX v6 automatic).

I don't think it can be. I had a lot of problems swapping over a cluster using the full method of the swap as you need a tool only the dealership has, and you can incorrectly lock it. I also don't think you can swap between models, or years, as the part numbers are completely different.

Honestly I would just keep the unit and note that due to the VIN (should verify country of origin) the odometer is in a different unit.
