without even seeing the picture, i'm going to make an educated guess that the speedo that you're looking at measures speed in km/h, not mph.

The speedo would be in the 200's if it were in kmh not the 100's.

perhaps, but in many ways its like the guys who have stock engines with a perfectly fine working tacho, then they go put a 10k rpm tacho, when their engine would explode well before then

i agree, i honestly don't see the point of huge tachs when your car has a tach built SPECIFICALLY for YOUR CAR. they always say they want a shift light, but you can easily get just a light and hook it to the stocker!

yes, if i actually put it! this is how i got my car! they just change it from reading kmh to miles without changing the actual tacho!

...mmm i guess i'll be the one to say it first. the reason why SOME of the people that buy different tachs is because the stock one isn't accurate at all. it can actually be off by 600 rpms when you get above 5k
yeh i guess in a lot of cars that is fair, im just pointing out the obviously riced examples
