Have a 1994 Subaru Liberty will this Tacho wire in or do I need a multiplier?

Asked by: Ivan
Hi Ivan, thank you for the question. Subaru models are tricky around this time period. There may be a need for a 1 pulse tachometer and there could possibly be a need for a 9117 Tach Adapter. I would recommend sending our Technical Support Team an email with your make, model, year, and engine size. They'll be able to confirm what will be required. https://www.autometer.com/contacts
