It should be okay as long as you don't turn the key to "ON" and start pumping gas all over the place. I suppose you could remove the fuel pump relay. 94/95's were the only SC's to come from the factory with the 145mph speedo.

After reading the post again... don't just hook a battery charger up to the battery cables. Do you have the battery that was in it?

Make sure the positive lead to the starter is not touching a chassis ground or the sparks will fly.

Why not just disconnect the battery cables from the battery, then hook up the charger to the battery and charge away? The car's elec. system won't even be connected to it then and there is nothing to worry about.
