E30 S54 Tachs

Haven't seen any info as to what swappers are doing for tachs? Any suggestions or ideas appreciated.

If you had a 4cyl engine you need to change the coding plug.

Either way have Bavarian Restoration or E30 Dad print you up a correct Tach, along with any other mods.

Here is mine:

I had a 9k overlay made. My car was a 325 so the plug is the same.

Bavarian restoration did a 9k tach for me in the same sweep as the M3 8k tach. WIth a custom coding plug it looks stock.

Ended up going with e30_dad. Even though it worked it was about to grenade. Yellow crap leaked out of the transformer all over board and components. Diodes and resistors were about cooked. Oh and the cluster was from an 83, mines an 89. my typical luck
