how accurate is a stock ek cluster?

I am getting a swap this weekend and i am getting a b16 istalled... so, i am going to be using my stock cluster which "redlines" @ 6800 rpm... will this be just as accurate for the sir motor? i believe it redlines around 7600rpm? Thanks.

8200 unless you did tuning... have a setup without tuning doesn't mean you can safely go beyond 8200...

have fun with the b16... i'm sure you'll be revving it that high all day long.. for the fun and to get the fun =)

yeah, the stock cluster only goes to 8000... if i have an obd2 set-up and the original sir computer and switch to an sir cluster, what mileage will show? is it stored on the ecu or is it on the cluster (assuming its digital... if its analog it will start where it left off i know)

No, if u swap to another cluster, the mileage will read what was on the cluster, its not digital, if u want your milege to be transfered to the new cluster take it to honda.

My stock ECU from my EK shoes past 8000RPMS .. so when I really push it, the RPMS rev to the point where it doesn't register I have switched to OBD-I though so it may be different then yours.
