Never seen those before but it sounds like it's time for you to buy a handheld tuner. More expensive but a great addition.

Agreed... a handheld tuner is something you will probably want in the future anyways so why not get it now???

Is a hand held tuner going to fix a mechanical speedo? Because IIRC all mustangs before the 1999's do not have electronic speedometers.

OP, replacing the speedo gear should be pretty simple. I don't remember ever hearing about it being a real pain in the ***.

According to my SCT owners manual, you can adjust for axle ratio (and a bunch of other things) on 96-04 4.6L Mustangs. A SCT should work and I imagine others are similar.
