on a 94, it's the Yellow/Dark Blue wire that sends the Tachometer input. I know that it's the same in at least 2 other years, but not sure about 96

96 is not biased off the 3rd gen. If a 2nd gen doesn't come with a tach cluster then the wire probably won't be at the cluster. You will have to get it directly from the computer.

Woh, woh, woh. When you install megasquirt you remove the old computer, right? If so what use is getting a tach signal from the stock wiring that comes from the old computer which is going to be gone?

I was just telling him where to check, to see if the tach wire on his car was indeed the Y/DB wire. Geesh...

You are going to need wiring diagrams, to properly install the megasquirt.
