from what i have read, you have to pick up and wire in one of the ford racing tach drivers. because coils and distributors in the conventional sense have fallen by the wayside, it takes newfangled technology to pick up a signal for the tach.

there should be a wire behind the guage cluster that you can tap into to get the signal. You may need a wiring diagram tho.

won't work, you need an 8cyl tach and a Ford Racing TachDriver

use the PCV taps onto the crank sensor wires, and vawula tach :)

or you can tap off the camshaft and use it in 4cyl mode :p but the crank sensor reads very very accurate, it is more accurate than the stock tach in my car, i compared the crank tach, stock tach , and tach on my scanner and the tach that is off the crank is about 75-100 rpm more accurate
