Hmmmmm, doubtful. Look on ebay at the tracker clusters with tachs. Look for any pics of the rear of the cluster. Then look at a metro cluster. I bet they do no look alike, thus would not work. You will need to become a detective with a sharp eye.

I would doubt that would be a plug and play mod. With a lot of time and wiring diagrams any cluster would be possible, but that it a lot of work for a tach.

I just looked on E-Bay and the 96-98 tracker cluster looks identical to the 92-98 Metro tach cluster. As long as it's going from 4 cyl to 4cyl I would put my money on it being plug and play.

Warning lights might be different, but the gauges will work.

Get the intake, head, and exhaust manifold. They all flow better than the G13.

What: Instrument Cluster with Tachometer & Tripometer
For: '92-'01 Metro/Swift
Donor Vehicle: '92-'01 Metro/Swift & '96-'98 Tracker/Sidekick/X90
Modification required: None. Although it may be beneficial to pull the speedo cable from the donor car as it is a little longer & double check the "idiot" lights, since the features of each car may be different. Example: Rear Defrost, etc. Also, be sure if your Metro is a 3 cylinder, you are pulling the cluster from a 3 cylinder & vice versa for a 4 cylinder. '89-'91 instrument clusters are shaped differently & will not work for the '92+ Metros. Some Metros/Swifts have a tripometer, but no tachometer as well if you want a simpler way of keeping track of mileage. You can use a 4 cylinder tachometer in a 3 cylinder, but you need to convert a 4cyl tachometer to 3cyl. A Tracker/Sidekick/X90 cluster can be used with minimal modification. The dummy light strip is shaped differently from the Tracker vs Metro & needs trimmed to shape. Move the dummy lights accordingly. Th temp. sending unit wire needs to be moved over one pin.
Why: Able to see engine RPM & track mileage easier by using the tripometer, rather than doing math at each fillup :)

I have an instrument cluster from a '97 Metro 1.3 4 cylinder for sale. I can convert it for a 1.0 cylinder if needed.

No. It doesn't work.

Idiot light pins are all different among other things.

as long as the idiot lights "light up" at all then its fine. just cut them out and MOVE them to the "right" spots. no big deal.

I wonder how hard it would be to put a G10 into an X90. REALLY intrigued by the X90's
