Default Will the 140 mph GT Speedometer Work in a NA PT?

Will the 140 mph GT first generation speedometer work in a NA non-turbo PT?

I've read several threads here that infer that it's just plug and play though I've found nothing definitive. But this is counter intuitive since the GT will have a different transmission than the regular auto, 17 inch wheels and may have other features such as ABS.

So other than speculation (which we can all do), does anyone know if this 140 GT speedometer will work or not for a fact? The input of the truly wise and informed is greatly appreciated.

I don't think wheel size will make a difference. I believe the tire height is approximately the same. Just bigger hole in the tire.

I dont think so, unless you can remove the speedo from the GT to the base cluster,

Also the techs have to use the DRB I bellieve to program the cluster. I had to replace mine and they had to program the BCM in the cluster.

It's probably possible, but I can't say what kind of hoops you would have to jump through. The trans is the same, only the Autostick control is different. I'm pretty sure nobody has tried it because it's rather like "upgrading" your base model Cruiser by slapping the GT turbo emblems on it. Insert all putdown jokes here >_____________<.
Even the Turbo Lite Cruisers didn't get the 140 speedo.

Hmm a 140mph indicator on a 110mph maybe (downhill) car

I think I'm only a scavenged part or two away from this crime already. But I'm thinking Viper emblems. If I'm going to go fake, I might as well go all the way.

So far, we are mostly just speculating.

But from a few wise souls, I now know that the wheels and tranny will likely not be an issue. (Speed shifter here I come.) And from my research, reprogramming is not likely required on the 1st Gen cluster before the swap. No CAN bus on a 2001.

Come on experts. I know somebody out there has actually done this or at least tried. It's time to speak up before I dive into the salvage dumpster again and purchase the 140 speedometer.

Oh come...... on! Even the GTs is PCM restricted speed set for 128mph, the PT handles unpredictably with speeds in excess of 120mph not matter what you do (CD bad), so this is purely a mod for looks. Even Brians custom speedo in his past PT was for looks because the scaling was not correct. An NA unless pumped have an effective MPH of maybe 80mph. So you say I am not being nice with my comment?

Oh. I never go over 60 mph. Why would anyone want to do that? I just want the speedometer.

And it sure would be nice to know before I make another trip to my "source".
