I would first investigate whether there are multiple physical configurations of the instrument cluster. If there is only one configuration (the EVIC stuff is there just not lit up ever), then you may be halfway home. If you let some sunlight bounce off the matt portion of the speedometer and you can see an outline of the LED arrays forming the EVIC, then you may have a cluster that will work.
Next up would be applying the same diagnostic approach to the wiring harness. If they make only one wiring harness and the little plugs just aren't plugged in, most of the rest of the task may be easy to accomplish.
If not, I would imagine it would be price prohibitive to have EVIC installed.
I suspect you are out of luck because the bean counters would have figured that there is a lot of wire to be saved by making more than one configuration.
Good luck. I would be interested in knowing how you made out.
