Guage Cluster V6 to GT

I have a 2002 3.8 and as most of u know, the speedometers on these cars only go to 120, where as the GT's go to 150. I was wondering if a GT cluster would switch over directly into my car so i could get the higher MPH.

negative, your car is limited to only go 112-115mph by the computer, not the speedometer cluster. Plus the GT cluster is much harder to read... it is also not calibrated right so it wont work as a bolt on anyway.

Get A SCT chip and they can take the MPH limiter off

It would be a direct bolt in they have the same dash but the speedo runs off of the computer so like Spector said it is probably not calibrated right
