300M Special Speedo ?

For the guys who got one, have you tried going over the governor since you put it in?

Reason I ask is because when I put in the 300M Standard guages, even though I didnt wire up the autostick right away the tcm began acting like it was autostick enabled.

Just curious....

As for the governor part - I put in the police cluster which goes to 150. My governor still kicks in at 108.

I wouldn't think the cluster could alter the functioning of the tcm or bcm or anything. It is a display like your monitor- If you get a new 23" wide panel it doesn't automatically make your vid card able to display 1900x1700 if it didn't already have the ability.

Simply put, I guess the cluster can't instruct anything to act different

The cluster is what tells the car whether it has autostick or not, as far as the governor I have no idea because I don't have one.

Yeah I was just curious if the clusters can unlock any other goodies.

Not entirely true, after putting in the cluster it DID unlock the autostick feature.

I just wasnt sure if there was any more potential in the special speedo.

The speedo does have a brain of its own. What it is fully capable off probably not much other the the a/s feature, wich is nice.

Think of it like this, your car isnt turning that light on it doesnt have abs to throw the abs light.

The cluster is no longer recieving an abs signal like it used to thus throwing the light.

Theres a post about it somewhere and how you can take your car to the dealer to reset the cluster and it will shut off the lights to the features you dont have.

Is there a way to do something similar to a 98" intrepid (get it above 120 after a 3.5 liter swap)? Just curious as I am going to do the swap in the future (plus an MTV and other necessary conversion parts) plus get a 300M chip to get 250HP. Lastly, a great intake to make it all better.

I've topped 150mph+ (240km/h+).

Straight swap. 200 to 120 (300EL). I own an R/T though...

The govenor is set in the PCM not the cluster. I have the 300M Special cluster and it took a Federal PCM to clear the governor.
