    With all the tire swaping that goes on this forum does anyone know the cheapest way to correct the speedo after puting bigger tires on a second gen taco ?

    I used the SPEEDOHEALER on my motorcycle (on 4 so far actually over the last 11 years) since a motorcycle is normally ~8% high in mph/odometer. Piece of cake as they have the factory plugs, you simply put it in-line.

    I wonder if something exists like this for the Tacoma?

    I was thinking the same, I use speedo healers too. Older cars used gears in the transmission, if these are similar then I would figure they wouldn't be able to be corrected easily.

    You could use an ultragauge and just calibrate it. I have one and it shows MPH but I have been too lazy to calibrate it. I believe they are +- $70 after the rebate?

    x2 on the Ultragauge. It's easy and has a lot of other uses besides just showing you your actual speed.

    I would have to imagine our speed sensor is electronic not a manual one. But I don't actually know.

    The nice thing about the SH over possibly other display devices is you actually reduce the # of miles your racking up on your odometer. I care about that as well.

    There is a speed calibration on the UltraGauge. It does not change the speedometer, but gives you a readout on the UG that shows your corrected speed.

    Too many to list, check out my build!
    Yes the Hypertech Speedo calibrator works really well... Fairly easy to install, just need to take your dash apart...

    or for a cheaper alternative, you could use a Dakota Digital...
