For a few months now I've noticed that my speedometer readout in mph wasnt quite accurate base on my rpm readout. I did some research and finally I got a new VSS and put it in yesterday. Unfortunately, the problem still exist. I feel like I wasted my money on buying the VSS which is not cheap at all, still did not solve my problem. What else can I do? Is there anybody with the same problem like my car, how did you fix it? My car is a 1995GSR, all stock except the SRI. Need help. I got a speeding ticket few weeks ago because of this inaccurate readout of my speedometer.

how far off is it? usually cops wont pull you over unless your doing 5 mph over the speed limit because speedo's arent totally acurate and their calibration may be off on the radar gun.

its oem wheel and oem tire size. the speedometer is off around 15to 20mph. When I start driving the speedometer is very slow going up. Like this morning on the way to work, my rpm is already around 4k (5th gear) and speedometer readout is around 50mph (I'm in the Interstate).

It might be the cluster because my 91 Integra had a disease or something because each time I was driving, I would have to refer to my math skills and do calculations on my speed. My speedometer was always 20 KMs above the actual speed. And when I stop the car at a dead stop, the speedometer still read 20km. So if I was driving in a 60 km/h zone, I would make sure my speedometer read 80 km/h. only difference. I didnt care, I just drove for 2.5 years and sold the car like it was.

i pulled my needle off, drove next to a friend on the phone on the highway at 60 MPH and stuck the needle back on at the 60 MPH mark while I was driving. lil risky but It has worked ever since. no more speeding tickets... and it was because I had those ****ty indiglo gauges. stay away from aftermarket gauges!

if im not mistaken, fifth gear at 4k in a gsr is about 80 mph so u may be off more than 15-20 mph if the speedo said 50 mph
Well as far as I remember my 4k at 5th gear is around 70mph. Can someone with a 1995 GSR verify this to me please.

It is very easy to swap a cluster, but I wouldn't go out and buy one to test it. Find someone in your area that might let you borrow their's and test it.

at 4k rpm in 5th gear in a GSR you should be cruising at 80mph, im ai correct?

101% Agreed Stay Away From aftermark gauges.. my brother had them in his 91 big mistake.
his whole speed odometer stopped working,he used to just guess @ what speed he was going
never did get a ticket..
