Default Speedo Gear different in 1993 and 1997 Rangers?

I just recently had a friend put a 1997 5 speed tranny in my 1993 Ranger 2.3, but now it feels like I am going faster than the speedo says when I am on the highway. Does anyone know if the gears for the speedo are different in those two years?
Thanks,

I don't know but if you have a GPS or a phone with GPS capability, you can check it out. Either one should tell you how fast you are really going.

the gear inside that controls the cable or vss could be different. go out on the interstate, look for the mile markers, go 60 by the speedo. should take 60 seconds to go one mile. or a gps as said works great. that's how i set my speedo after doing the leds, etc.
