you can swap the guage cluster out with a cluster with a tach, its plug and play, but you need your milage reset. but, i dont know anything about a seperate aftermarket tach, if thats what you are interested in.

but someone please tell, i would also like to know

How do you go about keeping the odometer reading the same, or does it stay the same automatically?

His second post sounds like he has an aftermarket tach, not the OEM gauge cluster setup.

Yeah It Was A Big Sunco Tech. I Think If U Did Change the cluster The Miles Of The Car Would Be In The Ecu Not In The cluster.

Have to crimp the wire onto the proper EEC-V ECU pin, which is what the picture is.
