Mine does not have one and i tried putting in one from what is probably a 4.3 auto and while the speedo and odometer seem ok, the tach is way off. It reads much lower than actual when i compare its reading at various RPM's against an OBD-2 realtime scanner. I'd like to source a unit from a 2.2 if they were ever optioned with one. Anyone know or have one?

Thanks,
Jon.

Yeah the 94-97 S-10/Sonoma 2.2 trucks definitely could be had with a tach, but it was sort of rare. The 94? tach cluster is real strange looking too, it has a Fiero style tach where 0 RPM is straight down, instead of like 15 degrees or the normal starting point. That may go for newer (95-97) clusters too, I forget.

My 03 S-10 did not come with a tach, after dicking around on eBay I gave up and ordered a brand new tach cluster from gmpd for about $200. I couldn't stand not having a tach!! The 98+ clusters are cooler though, I like having a digital odometer.

don't feel bad, my 98 is tach less, and it is kinda bad, have no idea where red line is, so cant get all of the engine, oh yea, it is a fleet model truck, so no options at all

In all honesty.....a tach isn't that important on these trucks......redline has a fuel cut off, you can't hurt the engine unless you spin it high all the time.....I don't even really glance at the tach unless I'm launching it......:shrugs: maybe thats just me
