    Yes but: IIRC, some (all?) sending units (at least water temp) for 98 is different from 99-02.

    I'm not really sure but if I were you I'd look in to it before starting.

    No it will not while the clusters look the same but the 98 computer sends an analog signal to the gauges while the 99-up uses a digital signal from the computer. besides in 98 the water temp gauge is different(it starts at 160 instead of 100 degrees)

    I knew there were differences but not exactly what. Analog vs digital.

    It'll physically fit. It just won't work with the 98 PCM.

    What's the reason? Did your 98 unit break? Just curious.

    No 98 is the only year LS1 f-body that has a unique cluster. It will fit but it won't work. You need to find yourself a 98 cluster and make sure its for a 98 as most sellers don't know the difference.

    Did you even read the rest of the thread???

    Yes, it will physically fit. Problem is that the 98 ECM is a 1 year only deal. The gauges are analog. 99-up are different...
