Best route for kmh/mph speedo conversion


Recommended Posts

Hi guys 

 

I have a 2003 jdm import car with speedo in kmh, 180 max. The k has been covered over with black tape so it reads m/h but I tested against the kmh in the speedo clock in the centre console and the kmh matches perfectly so it’s still displaying kilometres even though there’s tape on the speedo. A conversion has never been done 

 

so I want to make the car display mph on both the speedo and odometer. I will also buy a used mph clock for the centre console 

 

I thought I could just buy a mph speedo from a U.K. car and swap them over then get a mileage correction company to put the odometer right but I’ve been told the speedo isn’t compatible. Is that correct? 

 

what's my options and the best route forward? I’ve seen you can buy the mph dial but what’s the process for getting the speedo and odometer to read correctly? How much does this generally cost?

 

 Thanks in advance :)

Thanks. Good link to help me change the cluster but didn’t really help 100% confirm that a mph speedo will work correctly in a kph car. If it’s a plug and play swap that would be ideal as I’ll just buy the parts from a U.K. car

 

has anyone done it?
