There was a TSB about this:

POWER TRAIN
TSB #108150A -- SOME VEHICLES MAY DISPLAY A CONDITION AT 70 MPH WHERE THE SPEEDOMETER READS ABOUT 4 MPH FASTER OR SLOWER THAN HUD. *TW (NHTSA ID #50563, DECEMBER 01 1996)

Not sure what it says about it but it may have some answers?

156 on my HUD read 156 on my GPS, but the speedo needle was buried in the 'hump' of the steering column. Do I have a problem?

Only speculation is they made the SE cluster more accurate because you'd actually be looking at it.

Both the cars I've had were 3-5 off.
Well you'll feel right at home after the cluster-swap then......
