Does anyone know if a 94 4.3 L guage w/ tach would work on my 2.2 L? It is from an automatic and I have stick, but I would be willing to ignore the automatic symbols and lose the shift light if the tach and the speedometer would work. Also it goes up to 100 MPH and mine only goes to 85, would the electronics still tell it my actual speed or would I drive it nuts? Thanks,

IT might work but i highly doubt it will. There are two universal wiring harnes behing the gauges. one for manuals and one for auto. Now if you found a manual gauge panel it would work fine.

I'm not positive on this...
The speedometer will read faster than you are actually going. And the 2.2 have a higher tach red-line than the 4.3.

I don't know for sure. It's just a thought.

The 94-97 trucks didn't have the digital gauges, at least none that I've seen have, so important stuff like the mileage isn't stored in a computer, and can be easily turned by hand to the current mileage.

also the 94's had OBD 1 and the 95 up had OBD2 so that might interfer too. also the 94 dash is diff then the 95's too in setup.

ok here is the deal.

whatever computer you use has no effect on the spedo display or digital mileage for that matter either on s10's. the mileage is stored in a chip in the dash itself.

but since you are talkin a 94 to a 94 for dashes they are completely interchangable with no problems except the tach will read real high. I do not know if it is an easy fix like the ones for the 1st gen's wich all you had to do was change a capasitor. but it will fit and work just not completely right.
