You should be able to.
Rupe's just put a JDM spec in his missus 1.8 BJ and im about to put the one out of the JDM Mazdaspeed Familias into my car.
The Odometer reading is stored in the dash cluster not the car ecu.
Look for the lowest milage possible for the new dash.

Welcome to AGT

The manual cluster wont have the overdrive light for the auto - or at least it wont have the bulb. It may have the wiring though, so stick a bulb in the same position and see what happens!

I think Brisboy used to have a SP20 dash with about 95,000km on it.
He may still have it so I would check with him before buying a new one.

You mean the silver rings around the dial fascias? Streetunit used to make them. There known as DaveB rings btw. Anything you get nowa days is an immatation and requires sticking down.
