Default its been a long 3 hours

I just installed the gxp gauges and trying doing a totall swap of the odometer and DIC, but the memory of the mileage must be stored somewhere on the main circuit board and i would use my orginal cluster circuit but i have burnt out lights everywhere. so anyways, then when i get everything done and installed here at 12:45 AM ET. My gauges are alittle off, so i unscrew the face and adjust. not a big deal, then install it back in and find out that the DIC from my old cluster must not be compatiable because i just get a red screen. kind of weird, so tomorrow looks like I'll put the original original odometer and DIC in there. Just my two cents.
but I can already tell Im going to love the new gauges though, night and day.

that is why i havent done the swap myself... let us know if the speedometer is still on target, but i dont know what you can use for reference without a HUD..... maybe take some spins by the local police radar signs if you can find one

A scan tool will read directly from the PCM.

I havent noticed the speed being off at all but I havent gone faster then 40 yet. I will get a better feel for it throughout the day.
