Questions about 9C1 Dash Cluster

Can any one tell me the difference between the dash cluster that has the digital speed display in a 1994 Caprice wagon and a 9C1 dash cluster? Is there differences between the 9C1 dash clusters from year to year? Is there a link to information about installing a 9C1 cluster in a 1994 Caprice. Is it worth the work?

The 9c1 cluster were "certified" so when the cops pulled people over, they could say their speed was dead-on. Only cluster that won't work is a '96 Impala SS with the analog gauges.

So let me ask. I have a 96 9c1. I changed the whole dash cluster out cause the odometer was stuck. A new one was purchased and given with the car. I installed it no problem. Plug and play. So is it still "certified" or would it be off cause I installed another cluster from who know what car. Thanks

From what I remember (going back to the 90's when I was in the scouts) the clusters were certified by using a tuning fork (scout leader/police lt. said this was how it was done) before the digital clusters. Not sure how they do it nowadays, but the speed will be perfectly fine, unless there is a major gear/wheel/tire change. Others can chime in with more specifics.
