95, IIRC, you can patch the tachometer in the EDIS module so you don't need a tach driver. Search on it.

for 92-95s: Pin #2 on EDIS module, wire is tan w/ yellow stripe.

Keep the lead as short and well shielded as possible, signal noise on this wire will bother the PCM.

You can get a 2 1/16 autometer gauge and put it on the steering column. Pics can be seen in the Autometer section on my website.

Let me know if you have any questions.
