94-95 SC (Possibly earlier years, but not all had 145)

The speedometer is a direct plug and play swap.

My friend just did it. Shadow is right though, 94/95 is best. My friend bought a new 145MPH speedo from a dealer and just installed it. He also put white face gauges on it. It looks pretty good.

EDIT: BTW Toofast, I see you are in PA. We are doing a Albany NY meet august 2nd. I dont know how far it is from you but it should be a pretty good meet. My friend with the 145 MPH speedo will be there so you would be able to check it out first hand if you are planning on doing it after that date. The info for the meet is in the upcoming meet forum.

Also here are some pics for now:

Once again you guys save my butt. I was just talking to a friend about this exact topic, and we weren't sure if the SC was a direct swap, and if white face was available.

Awesome... this place is great.

Now... what to do about the odometer....

My friend, the ones in the pics, he paid $140 but thats because he got it new. Thats why there is only 32 miles on it in that pic. The other 70 just magicly went away. LOL

I carefully lifted the bar with the gears on it and turned the number where it needed to go. The very right side ones I left alone and spun the trip OD to roll it the rest of the way so as not to put stress on the plastic mounting point of that gear shaft.

is there any way to get 145 mph speedos for 97? ive really been wanting one and don't wish to change to the 94/95 cluster (even if i could, i wouldn't want to, don't like how it looks).

Ok, so if I were to put one in, do I need to change the speed sensor? Or does the speedo just 'know'? I would like to get just the speedo (145) for my '89 SC, so if anyone has one for sale that will drop right into my existing cluster, I would be interested. Thanks,

Matt
