Sorry It's taken so long to get back to all of you but I've been under the weather.
Changing the speedometer to MPH, decided to use my instrument cluster and go with a labels and change all the instruments to white. Big reason doin it is everything works, so why take a chance!!!

Odometer; since it is digital my thinking is there should be a way to reprogram it. Has to be some type of electronic instrument that will allow you to reprogram the digital display. What I am looking to do is an exact swap from kilometers to miles and document the the kilometer switch. Who knows but maybe an OBDII will do it, unlikely but cannot be ruled out until it has been researched and tried.

Thank you to everyone that responded.

I wonder if he can M-BOND the car to get it in. I know getting stuff into Canada used to be far stricter than the US.

I had several trailer loads impounded for inspection on the Canadian side. Zero on US. Ah my old LTL and FTL days...

I think one should look at the cost of shipping a car from the Philippines to the U.S. . Shipping exceeds what it would cost him to get a replacement car in the U.S.
