Hi guys

Busted by speed camera in XH van and getting done for 6klms over in 100 zone. Need to know if the diff ratios are different and that this would throw the speedo out even more in the Xh as compared to an EL. Seeing they both use the same cluster/speedo.

cluster doesnt need to be changed when you change the diff ratio... the speed the car is travelling at is sent to it via the ecu. ecu obtains the speed from the speed sender in the gearbox. if you change diff ratio, you need to change this ;)

I don't know about speed cameras, but they do bust you with there hairdryers for less than that down here...
