The cluster swap should just be "plug n play". As to the difference in mileage - I believe in some vehicles, when you install a different cluster in the vehicle, the ECU (electronic control unit (car's computer) will change the mileage on the new cluster to what you have on your vehicle. I am unsure if the Civic does this though.

thanks for your help m8 i ended up removing the rev gauge altogether it was screwed on the back of the cluster with 3 screws so i swapped the rev counter from that one on ebay and kept my own speedo so same mileage and rev counter is working a treat :D ive also learnt a good lesson never mess about with your gauges or needles hehe

cheers

In the UK does rev counter mean the tachometer (engine RPM)?

OK I thought so. I do know that bonnet (UK) is hood (US) and boot (UK) is trunk (US). Still learning UK car lingo (I have been a mechanic here in the US for 20years), my girlfriend is from Ireland so that's how I learned about boot and bonnet.
