Re: Guage Needle repostioning

if you pulled the needles, if i remember correctly, you need to have some sort of logger or device to see where the needles need to be, and reinstall them to their correct position.

Now i dont remember but i know our gauges recalibrate/sweep if you pull the battery and let the ECU reset, though i dont know if it would be able to readjust for that much of a difference (IE say you are showing 4000rpm at 750rpm real idle).

Re: Guage Needle repostioning

yeah... when I was thinking about doing the swap, I read you should try to never take the needles off. That might be a bit hard to figure out. I guess you could start the car and get it nice and warm, and then install the needles where they read normally.... and that might do it
