i heard people say the shock TACH is not very accurate. but since your new tach should be reading off the same wire, i dont know why its off. how much is it off?

i might be reading your second question wrong, but it doesnt matter what numbers go up to on the tach. my speedo goes up to 140mph, but i doubt my LS can go that fast.

see if you can really rev till 10k...=P

I don't think the stock tachs are very accurate. But I would'nt think that they would be off by that much.

ohhh i did misread your first post.

are you saying that when you reline your car, 7500 on the engine, it reads 9500 on the tach?

if the wiring is done right, maybe its a defective tach.
