Would there be any PCM issues with converting the speedo to a Auto Meter or similar gauge? I was thinking about gutting the stock digital gauges and custom making a piece to hold several analog gauges?
Would it be very difficult or just require some fabrication of the wiring?

I've asked a question like this before. quickly, here is your answer. From what I've been told, a 94 or 95 will run just fine without the cluster installed. Installation of the gauges would be just like any other car except for the Speedo, and I never got an answer on that one. Being as I am running a T56 I "think" I should be able to rig something up. Let me know how or if you make out.

Far as I know...you just need to make sure the speedo you get is compatible with the GM VSS...which I believe is 4000 pulses per mile, but I'm not sure...it's in the archives though.

Chris McCabe (the northeast parts guy that rocks) has an 89 9C1 with a 95 drivetrain...so he has the full LT1 wiring harness and PCM and all...and he has an aftermarket analog speedometer working with it.

Everybody does the Camaro cluster. Some of us just want to be different and use/build a set of gauges that looks/functions better than the GM clusters.

I have had this on my list of to do projects for some time. I an old cluster housing (the white part) gutted and waiting for me to get some time. I am going to make a front face out of aluminum or ABS and I will just leave the little surround on there to make the cluster meet up with the gauge bezel.

You guys wirk out the electronics and I will be all set.

I guess your SOL on the mileage for the new speedo? You can't sell a car with an odemeter thats not accurate, can you?
