If you have abs sensors you can use my new VSSPro product.

It processes the signal form the abs tone ring to a proper VSS signal for the dash and the ecu.

Unscrew the cable drive from the trans and screw in a speed sensor. It's that simple.

Converting from a Cable VSS to a electric VSS is a PITA. You need to completely replace the cluster and in doing so rewire the cluster and add the circuit for the VSS. I have done a few of these conversions and it works but if you've never done it before I would not recommend attempting it.

If you have an electric speedo dash like the OP did then it should be plug and play. Otherwise it's a lot of wiring like Zephyr said.
