Hi Jeff, I work at a Saab dealer in No VA. The new body 900s have two types of Instrument clusters, MIU1 and MIU2. The MIU1 (Main Instrument Unit) is used for the home (Swedish) and other select foreign car markets. I was told at school, that ALL 900s imported into the US markert come with MIU2 clusters, which have the tach. Is this a US car? I don't know if they can be interchanged, but I suspect not. The 94 3.5 Electrical system, Instruments manual, shows there is a single 56 pin connector for the MIU2 and three seperate connectors (14, 12, and 12 pins) for the MIU1. In addition to a MIU2, you would need a wiring harness (or at least modify it big time) and then you would need an ISAT or Tech 2 to program it. If you want a tach, I would suggest you buy a car with one in it already. Sorry to bring you the bad new.
