I'm not suggesting that the device won't fix the problem, only that based on all the technical information I've read to date, I don't understand why there is a problem in the first place. Any GM vehichles I've read about to date (which really only includes 2K+) all talk about using the standard of 4000PPM. I might be missing something here so I'll read further.

I don't get it either but its definitely off. Is the intense re-calibrator a permanent fixture or more of a tuner? It says it can even fix stock speedometers which can be off by up to 4% so I think it would fix my problem. I just don't want a black box in my car all the time just to make the speedometer work correctly.

Yeah I can live with the speedometer being off by alittle bit. I have a aeroforce guage that displays my mph anyways. So its really not that big of deal for me. I wanted to show my actual mileage because I love looking at a 180,000 miles and knowing its still going strong.

I would estimate it at about 10%. When I'm going 50 its 5 off.

I'm guessing in km/h it would be even more though..

Interesting idea. Where does the needle rest when the car is still?
