I like the LS gauges... but as of now, Books for school drained all the money i had saved from the summer and then some... $600 for books... B/ so all my car plans are either cancelled or put on eternal hold. for now it gets me place to place and if it ain't free/ a mandatory safety hazard, it ain't happenin'. Thanks though! good stuff to know
Ok, got you. My other question is... I have a 2005 impala base model, some summitracing mods, but original cluster with 191.000 miles no RPM gauge, in the case that i swap my cluster for the ss or monte carlo one with 100.000 miles, and i use it for a whole year putting 13.000 miles on it, you are saying that swaping back my old cluster it got to be showing the same 191.000 miles on it? No marks or signs of manipulation on it?
I know this thread is three years old, but I have to change the cluster cause of the cheap GM bean counters on the cheap stepper motors. I am able to get a new cluster with the upgraded motors, but it's a higher mileage. If I read the responses right, I have to go to the dealer to get the odometer reading corrected? Thanks.
Yes, or you could just replace the stepper motors in the cluster yourself with the updated model. Pretty easy, and only costs ~$50 if you have to buy the soldering iron and stuff too. The stepper motors are about $5 a piece.
Thought about that, unfortunately it's my dd. I really don't want to have to feel rushed to do it. The cluster itself comes out fairly quick and easy, and I can solder, I have the tools. I thought about buying a replacement, use temp, then repair the original. It may be off a few hundred miles, but that is better than the 10's of thousands with the replacement/reman'd one. Thanks!!
