I'm doing this to my truck. Factory gages aren't accurate (trust me, I make them for a living, I know!), and the older they get, the worse. Senders, too, often are inaccurate or bad.
All new gages, all new senders(I'm even swapping in a new gas sender), and a programmable electronic speedometer is the way to go. Is it necessary? no, but I hate not having an accurate speedometer. These you push the button, drive a mile, push it again and its calibrated.
I'm using VDO gages, since I work for VDO. Cheaper than bling bling autometer, but better quality than the parts-store sunpros and the like.
