Taco reading wrong?

Recently bought an 85 323i, but the taco is reading far above what it should. It has the standard gearbox, which in my other 323i does 80km/ph at 2000rpm in 5th.

My new car reads approx 3000rpm.

There is a definite pattern of the rev 'boost' it follows an extra 50% to what it should.

Could this be because the instrument panel has been replaced with a 4 cylinder one? so it is reading 50% more ignitions?

Also, just replaced the timing belt, tensioner, adjusted the valve clearances and gave the dizzy a clean, will i have to re-time the engine?

I want to get the car and everything in it running well, as i just passed my blueslip/ roadworthy inspection today.
