    Default DTi Speedo swap

    I've been to a scrappy today and managed to get hold of some SRi clocks. Now, the speedo only goes up to 140mph, whereas mine goes up to 160mph.

    Mines a 2.2 DTi Elite and I'm thinking the clocks from the scrappy are from a 2.0 DTi. It said DTi on the rear but had the engine size missing. The rev counter only goes up to 6000 rpm as mine does.

    Now, the question is, are they interchangable? Or would I see problems due to the difference in mph readings?

    Cheers. The dials work great. I verified the speedo with sat nav and they're more accurate than the clocks I took out.

    I've had a good day at the scrappy today. I was after something totally unrelated to Vectra's and saw a few 'C's laid up. I managed to bag a full set of SRi vents and dash trim and the dials. I'm going to head back as the downpipe is still there on the DTi. I'll try and get that to decat mine.

    What year are your cars? Mine is an 03 2.2DTi Elite and had 160 clocks. The Mrs has a 53 2.2DTi SRi and that has 160 clocks in, too.
