Using the present or future tense in the main clause does not change the meaning of the sentence.

Using the present or future tense in the main clause does not change the meaning of the sentence.

Should it read:

Using the present or future tense IF the main clause does not change the meaning of the sentence.  IF in place of IN

Hola Johan,

It wouldn't make sense if you say "if" instead of "in". What we mean in that statement is that whichever tense you use, the meaning of the whole sentence won't change. 

Si ahorro bastante dinero voy/iré a Cuba. 

Both tenses will refer to a "future event".

I hope this clarifies it.

Saludos
