I can't say that I "know" it will work, but based on the work I did swapping a 996 cluster into my car: http://986forum.com/forums/boxster-general-discussions/43017-carrera-gauge-swap.html I think it is likely to work for a cluster with the older-style lcd displays. I have not worked on the newer-style dot matrix display.

The U.S. spec clusters can be set to read in kilometers. This suggests that Porsche used one cluster for all the cars.

Not sure if this helps, but I have a USDM car running a CaDM cluster and a row tune without issues. I just made sure the plug colours matched up
