It sounds like a similar problem frscke has in his G30 speedos.

I'll check my FS books, but both of his bounce around wildly fully pegged at WOT...

If your FS books give you any ideas, please let me know. Thanks

Lol. That must of been fun. You probably put the sports cars you passed to shame. You should take your 454 to the street legal drags. Maybe hustle some youngens. For the fun of it, add a spoiler and a front air dam for some down force.

Take the speedo cable off and clean and lubricate.
