    I think it's stored in the PCM, not the cluster, so you'll be fine. If that were the case, everybody would go try swapping their clusters out for lower mileage ones.

    thanks!, so if i swap the pcm, the mileage will change right? i mean bc i plan to buy a used pcm for the tune, that would be also a problem, i will not know the mileage on the pcm,,

    Okay, did some more reading on this topic on another site, and unfortunately I can't give you an honest answer as to where the mileage info is stored. Some seem to think it's in the PCM, others think it's stored in the cluster. I'm sure somebody who has swapped clusters will chime in and give you a more informed answer.

    Ask Frost. I'm sure he has been asked this question a few times due to programing and tuning PCMs

    mileage is 100% stored in cluster, some dealers will program the replacement gauges to your actual mileage.....but most want to be the ones changing them out ...so something you can do easily will turn into $$$$

    I'll ask frost when I shipp the PCM to him to get it tuned.
    I would think it's on the cluster also.
    In this case is 80k difference from what my car has lol so I'll def wanna drop the miles to what I have.
    I just don't know how to do that.
