150 to 120 MPH speedo swap 99-04 stang

Has anyone ever attempted putting the higher 150 speedo in a 99-04 v6 car? It seems like with todays auto computers it should be possible to recalibrate.

I think you would need the guage face, and the speedo recalibrator to do this. Unless you can plug n play a tuner to change it Im unsure really, no need to go that fast anyways

Are there any electrical differences between the 99-00 and the 01-04 speedo gauge clusters? Or anything that would make a difference between the two years? Would it be as easy as getting a 150/8k overlay and having the car's computer recalibrated? As far as driving 150+, been there, done that. I'm mearly looking for another cool mod to do during the winter. I seem to pick the projects that few or none have done before. I like it that way.

yes, there are differences, and they're not interchangeable.

He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

you may have to get a speedo gear that would fit your connection for a 150mph setup. I think the late modles run off the transmission, not the rear differential

when the bullit speedos came out, I liked 'em and was going to install the cluster.

It took more than I was able to do.

But, I'm fairly ignorant of electronics, so if you're good at it, and can come up with a fix, you could probably make some money on a set of adapters.
