Want to buy tach / need help with tach

Hi. I drive a 2004 ZTS 5-speed with the Duratec 2.3. Ford decided it didn't need a tachometer, but I disagree. I've purchased a cluster with a tach, but it must be from an SVT/Zetec because the plug in the back does not fit mine. Mine has the gray one and the one I purchased has a white one... the white one is a little smaller than the gray one.

I tried to post this in the WTB forum but I don't have the proper privileges? Odd. Maybe I'm too much of a FF newbie.

Anyway, I'm very, very interested in purchasing a factory tach (that will fit, of course). If you have one or know where to find one please let me know.

If not, I'm interested in buying an aftermarket one and installing it where the SVTs have the Oil/Volt meters (that little coin tray). Does anybody know of a good one that is small enough to fit in that area? I doesn't necessarily have to be an actual gauge, I wouldn't mind if it was digital. The fitment doesnt have to look pretty - I'll take care of that part.

If I get an aftermarket one, am I going to need the ford tach driver too?

Please let me know either way. I appreciate it.
