police car speedo, in increments of 2k's instead of 5 or 10, whatever ours are, it's cool and all, some people froth over them i guess.
i'm not sure if any other differences.

yeah the face of them the speedo goes up in 2 kms at a time and you can put it into diag mode and calibrate the speedo to the size of your wheels/diff ratio but other than that its a fairmont/xr6 cluster, you can print off the police cluster gauge readings and fit it to a fairmont cluster but it wont have the speedo calibration

EL chasers fetch a fair bit more than EF.

I've a couple of them, and expect around $200 a piece. (under 120,000k's)

Not sure, it was out of a s2 or 3 wreck but a previous owner may have put it in there from a s1. Deff a chaser has the calibration function and says police next to the serial number.
