Default gauge cluster for 2000 Honda Civic EX?

Okay I have a 2000 honda civic ex. It has stock gauge's that only go to 120mph (130 if you count lines). So anyways I want to buy one that goes to 160mph. but I dont understand how its accurate to 160? Is it built in the cluster so i dont have to worry about it or what? like I dont even know how to explain it. Sorry































can you please try to help.















yes thats what I mean, if i'm doing 100mph real time it will say i'm doing like 140? I dont want that, what do I have to do?















well i'm at buying a new high output engine too. if i wasnt i wouldnt care if the gauge went to 160....

I don't think it would work, probably you'll get wrong information all the time if you change the gauge because it will think you still have the old one...

Man...is it just me or don't Honda civics mainly go only up to 134- if you count the lines, so even if you replace your existing one it will still go to that speed.















If you want to speed up you better change your engine- but a simpler thing to do would be to get a new car =S















It is built in but only in the original ones- the stolen ones are crap

FIRST OF ALL, BUY AN AMERICAN CAR..!!!















































SECOND, IF YOU GET THE GAUGES CHANGED YOU WOULD PROBABLY HAVE TO REPROGRAM THE MODULE AND IF YOU WANT TO TEST THE ACCURACY JUST FLY BY A RADAR, YOU KNOW, THE ONES THAT SIT ALL DAY WITH A BIG SCREEN ON IT...IF YOU CAN FIND ONE THERE YOU GO!!































IF NOT, HONDA SUCKS..! BUY A DODGE OR A CHEVY, SOMETHING WITH REAL BALLS!!!















A STOCK 350 CHEVY MOTOR WILL KILL A SOUPED UP HONDA OR ACURA ANYDAY!

2000 Honda Civic Ex wasnt designed to do 160mph, up to about 140 i know there accurate, after that its up to you to see.































ok for the speed issue "if i'm doing 100mph real time it will say i'm doing like 140" no it wouldnt, civic's vehicle speed sensors (VSS) are fairly accurate ( + or - 2mph varying on tire size) only way it would be inaccurate somewhat is if your doing a burnout standing still it would go up to 30mph-ish while your standing still, but it would be basing the speed off the front wheels doing a burnout, but other than that there accurate, unless the ignition is turned off, then it will go to "0".
