Quickie!

With the xcal3 I recieved from Tom can I change the speedo reading? If so, how much can it be changed?

There should be an option when you load the tune called "tire revs/mile" put in the correct tire revolutions per mile and your speed and mileage should be correct (if you have never had your needles off).

Ok, again before I do this I want to make sure this is right. The car use to have 205/40/16 on before now it has 205/50/16 that would make the speedo seem like it was going 30 but actually going say 35+?
