Hi, I have a 1996, 2.2, with no tach stock, I found a 1997 cluster with a tach and I was wondering if I could switch clusters? The 1997 was on a 2.5 engine. Thanks

well, you probably could swap it if the wiring is the same. If the wiring is different, it'd be easier to just go buy an aftermarket tach ($30-200) and put it in.

I have the same car and installed an OEM tach almost three years ago. Around two hours worth of work, not very difficult and not very expensive. There is already a place just right of the speedo to fit it in.
You will find here more info on how to do it.
Good luck.
