Speedo conversion

Hi chaps,
Just been looking on the SIDC forums and to convert my speedo to MPH all i need is a converter that goes on the back of the clocks, am i right to think this and if so do i need an electrical one or a mechanical one? The car in question is a MY94 WRX import. Thanks in advance Danny.

Hi Danny,

Converter will go behind the clocks. Your car has a cable operated speedo so will need a mechanical converter.
