I take it you have the ''s'' trim since you didn't fill out the section, in ''what you drive''.....IDK if you want to go w/ the oem cluster or just a basic aftermarket tach.

If you go aftermarket you have to have one that reads waste spark impulses as they are half what is normal and have no common wire to join the two halves up to read the full rpm.

Normal 4 cylinder is 2 impulses a crank rotation per coil, waste spark is 1. The two coils make it 2 but the signals cannot be joined other than in a circuit board of which there are a few out there.
