    if it is anything like the mitsubishi digital clusters, the mileage is stored in the speedometer gauge itselg.

    Just don't. No real need for that, and the car doesn't have 60k on it, it has 70k on it, reguardless of what engine it has in it.

    odometers are designed specifically for the purpose of telling you the vehicle mileage, and are designed so they cannot be rolled back. many designers have failed, but that is beside the point. Just leave it alone.

    The point of the odometer is to tell you how many miles the vehicle has been driven since it was built, not roughly how many the engine has on it. Rolling it back is completely illegal and just plain unnecessary...
