No.. I don't run that fast wearing my speedo.. but almost 8O

I'm wondering; Can I simply bolt a 120mph speedometer from a 2nd gen GT into my 2nd gen LX dash? I'm sure the dash housings are the same, but will the speed signal/cable mount up, and will I get an accurate reading?

Also, are these speedos electronic (wire signal) or mechanical (cable)?\

Thanks! :D

The 120 in my 95LX and the 120 in my 91GT are both mechanical cable.

If you want one, I'd be more than happy to hit the boneyard and grab ya one and you can try it out for yourself.

Well, it is a durango.. probably has half the aerodynamics of the galant and probably couldn't pass 110mph going downhill.

But yeah.. I know what you're talking about. I had people jump in my BMW all the time, take a look at the tach and say "Damn, this thing only goes 85?" I'd hafta inform them that in the early 80's even ferrari equipped it's cars with 85mph speedometers, due to legislation. We had an old subaru 1800 wagon with a 120mph speedo.. what a joke that was.. couldn't see above 90 if you tried.. but those same folks thought it was fast :roll:

I got my LX wagon up to 112mph one day on the highway... lol that roxxord. I wish I had a camera to take a pic of the speedometer...but anyways

The speedometer. Chances are I can get it for around 7-10 bucks or so, and then shipping will be another few. I am not going to charge for my pulling it, because that's retarded, and there is one escort in the yard that is my "favorite" escort - lol... I've pulled half the car apart, and I already took a good part of the dash apart, so I could get it out in about 40 seconds or so, so no biggie. I can't guarantee that the speedometer works, but I pulled the tach from that car, and the tach worked fine, so chances are that the speedometer will be golden too.

Next time I'm over there I can pull it for you if you want, just give me the go.
