Having your speed read incorrectly can be somewhat frustrating at times if you have changed the rear-gear or gone with different tire sizes. Fortunately Ford Racing has come out with a new product for owners of 1994-2010 Ford Mustang who have changed the tire size or rear-end gear and want to have the correct speedometer readings. The new Speed-Dial tool is a very small and compact device that works with manual and automatic transmissions to provide owners a cheaper alternative to expensive aftermarket tuner devices.
This new tool is easily wired between the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) and PCM/Instrument cluster with four wires. There is no reprogramming of the PCM required.
