Hello all, looking for some suggestions/feedback on my cluster project. I have recently converted my '79 to a later model EFI LT1 setup from a Caprice. In an effort to control cost, I did not want to change tailshaft housing to have a VSS signal at $500. I also wanted to maintain the stock cluster appearance. I gutted the sppedometer head and updated it with components from an '05 Chevy Aveo and will use the original PCB wired to the PCM. I should be able to update the decal for a perfect match although it is surprisingly a close match. I should also be able to update the calibration via the PCM. Has anyone ever tried this type of conversion before? If so, how did it work out for you? So far I'm into it for $18.
