Not hard at all. What sort is it, and why do you need it? Does the factory tach not work?

Re: Aftermarket tach install?

RPM wire goes to the coil, though it's a long time since I've installed an aftermarket tach, so not sure where. The ground goes to a nice clean earth somewhere (not a tin of soil like some have done) and the easiest way to get the light on is to take a feed off of the dash light wire. The rest is all going to be very specific, so without any more info, no more help can be given.

Re: Aftermarket tach install?

should have bought a apexi rev speed meter man. they aren't huge and ugly and they can take away the jdm speed cut (that is if you have a jdm h22 with a jdm p13 ecu) they also do 0-400meter time (1/4 mile) and all kinds of other stuff along with a shift light here is a vid of mine doing work
