I just checked my speedo and it is both mph and kph, mph being the primary reading. I'm sure the Canadian Shelbys have kph as the primary reading.

To all,

That is correct. On the Canadian Shelbys, the KPH is the primary number with the MPH on the inside in smaller font.

Thanks for the confirmation, John.

I suppose if someone wanted a KPH speedo, they could order one from a Canadian dealership.

That is correct.

A dealer I spoke to a while ago while looking at purchasing a U.S. made car told me that it'll set you back at about $500CDN (or US$510).

Holy @#$%! $500 bucks for a speedo? Is it gold plated? :eek:

Actually, according to the person I spoke to, they would replace the whole instrument panel to show everything in metric measurements.

"hey how much boost you get?"
"I get 0.059 MPa of boost!"

that'd be confusing =/

I haven't got my car yet (that's a mellow version of a 'Prez' moment), so I can't answer the boost question, but I'm sure that boost is still shown in pounds??? I can't imagine boost being shown in kilopascals (kps). That just isn't right!

Are there any Canadians (that have their cars) on the board that can answer that one?

OK.

9 psi = 0.062053 MPa = 62.053 KPa = 62053 Pa = 0.61241 atm = 0.62053 bar = 465.43 mmHg = 6327.6 mmH2O

Take your pick.

Good lord. First he's our own personal mapquest. Now he's the human conversion chart. :D :D :D

I especially like the millimeters of mercury conversion. Isn't that more suitable for barometric pressure?

My calculator has the conversions built in. It took about 3.5 seconds to get them all.

Pressure is pressure. mmHg, mmH2O, and atm may be more commonly used for measuring the "weight" of a column of air at a given altitude, but they are an expression of air pressure.
