Gauge cluster question (fitment)

I have a '98 GT and just bought a white face gauge cluster from a '98 Cobra. Will it work and read correctly ? This is my first SN-95 Stang so I am still learning.

It should, just remeber that your redline is at 5800 not at 6800. I am pretty sure everything else is the same

Gauge cluster

You might pay attention to your speedo, doesn't the Cobra have a higher reading speedo?

Yes sir it has a 160mph unlike the GT which reads to 150mph. I didn't think it would be affected because it looks liek the numbers are just staggered differently. Anyone else know ?

No problems. It's plug-n-play.

When your speedo reads 80mph, you'll actually be going 75mph. At 40, it's more like 37.5. I tried this in mine. Also, you will need to transfer the printed circuit from yours to the new cluster (I'm pretty sure this is the case for 98's. I know it is for 99+. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong). Just be careful when you pull the plug off of the back of the board.

You can verify your speed with the trip odometer self test proceedure. Hold in the trip odo button while starting the car. Let go when it shows "TEST", and then push the button repeatedly 'til you get to ENG (mph). This will give you the speed that your PCM is seeing. Good Luck!

He has a 98. There is no self test procedure, etc. You will NOT have any speedo variance. You do not need to transfer circuitry. It will work fine.
