Were they anything like the ones listed on this website:

If so, then theres not a hell of a lot of fun in getting that going huh. Maybe useful if DIY tuning..

Well, got the vehicle speed going sweet on the display. As you outlined on the previous thread it is 8% out from the dash.
However, the Engine speed RPM didn't wanna display.. just showed a static 441?
Still, a useful little trick to have up me sleeve  :P
