Sorry for the blasphemy on this list of transplanting an Urq vital organ 
into a wannabe...   ;)

My father, brother, and I put a 3B into a lovely '84 4KQ (courtesy of Chris 
Woodward w/ help from Tom Saltino).
I believe the '84 has a speedo that tops out at 85mph.  Needless to say, 
with just a Stage 1 chip, this car is a rocket-ship
and blows thru 85mph in seconds.  So I am trying to find a nice Christmas 
present for my father!

(1) Can anyone confirm if the U.S. Urq speedo (mine is 155mph) or the entire 
instrument cluster can be swapped in place of the 4Kq unit?

(2) Maybe the harder question:  does anyone have a U.S. Urq speedo for 

(3) Other ideas?  Maybe a 5Ktq speedo fits and I don't know it....
