    Come on mate, it's getting boring now watching you put all the effort in and make the same mistake over and over. Get it finished and enjoy.

    Yep, awesome, could be exactly what I need for mine. James, can you share some more info please? number of teeth on that ring, what sensor etc?

    12 teeth, and I am using the original sensor out of the GTT box so I can retain my GTT clocks.
    Valver ABS shafts, Valver ABS Hub's. Clio 172 Phase 1 089 box with quaife, clio williams speedo cable (Not connected in dash end just using the 3 wires to provide ecu with MVSS signal aswell )

    Thanks very much. That might be a really good solution for me as I'm running an ND0 box (so no way to drive a speedo), mk1 scenic hubs and shafts and a 19 dash cluster (mechanical like the mk1 clio)

    I'm thinking a GTT speedo head can be fitted to a 19 cluster, any ideas?

    Be cool to use the GTT rev counter too and plumb in the boost gauge :)

    I know the speedo head from a valver has been fitted to a GTT with modification to the plastics on the GTT and a couple of wires soldered over for lighting.

    Don't see why a GTT head can't be used in a 19

    Isnt the design of the GTT head a poor one and limits flow ?

    Seems 100% logical in man car logic.

    Car didnt get figures wanted / needed. Spend some cash to rectify that.

    I could have sworn you said you were selling it ..

    All the new mods and lack of proper map as the engine was originally out of a quick clio that ate Audi r8s, but only difference in setup was my turbo being bigger so I stuck with the scoff map for a period thinking it would do if anything would have thought my turbo would have caused it to run lean. Only difference in setup is my turbo and clearly my fuel setup is better lol as still only running 3bar fuel
