    Dallas speed cal for 100 bucks. Anything after 95 is a speed cal. Its electronic and a speedo gear won't do. If im wrong someone please tell me.

    There is no correct speedo gear for 4.10's...you can try a 23T gear but it will get chewed up pretty quick. The Speedcal is the way to go. I found mine new on ebay for $81 dollars.

    Speed-Cal is your only option. The 23T will still be off, and you'll be replacing it every 6 months.
    The speed-cal is easy to install and is dead on.

    Yup, I'm also one for saying get the Speedcal and don't look back.. IT will be dead on and you won't have to worry about chewing up those cheap plastic gears.

    Hey drop top. You have a 96 5spd with 4.10s? If so what code did you use for your speed cal?
