Default Need a tach for my Brighton

Want to put a tach from a suitable Impreza into my tach-less Brighton Impreza. Does my car have pickups and wiring already, or, on such transplants do i need the whole shebang? Hoping I can just grab a donor gauge from the salvage and drop it in without having to run wire & such. Appreciate the input.

I believe you can tap an aftermarket tach (such as Autometer tach) into ECU's engine speed signal wire even though you don't have a tach. The ECU still needs to know the current engine RPM.

If you can't find one, then you can tap into ignition module. I don't have a clue on which wire.

You can remove the blank plate and install a tachometer. It's the same p/n for all 1993-96. The electrical connection is through the mounting screws and the signal wire is already connected to the circuit board on the back.
