I see what you did there....


But in Justin's defense, I wrote the damn thing and used the how-to for my most recent cluster molestation session.


But then again, didn't I do your first for you, Pedro???

Just did this because I swapped my odometer on my cluster to the new one. I am off by about 5mph but I think it's because my tires are a little larger. Is there any down fall to just traveling 60mph verified by GPS and then put the needle on the correct number ? I figure this would be easier? Or would I simply hook the battery back up and when it reads to 70mph like it did the first time, move it to 75 and then drive and verify?

Thanks,
-Nigel

That's how I've set the needle on all my gauge swaps. I use the GPS and cruise control, the first time I even had a friend drive in front of me to make sure it was right
