Thats got nothing to do whether its a 6 or not? they are the same values in the end, e.g, 4 x 1000 = 4000rpm and 40 x 100 = 4000rpm

I'm pretty sure that the tacho was only fitted to the V8's. The difference in those is the redline, maybe different variants of the V8's of the vehicles that those tachos came out in.

Pretty sure the 6cyl SL/E's had tacho's as well as the 8's.

im pretty sure some came out the tachos, i think the reading comes from the - on the coil

do you have the part number? Certain option packs did permit the 6cyl motor with a tacho.

Didn't think there was such a thing as a 6 cyl SL/E, thought that one was an SL/X. But I could be wrong.

I wish that was the case! Sadly they released them with 6 packs also, same as VK & VL Calais.

AFAIK the V8s were redlined at 5000 and 6's at 5500. so on that basis i would say its a six.
