    Im looking for a RPM output from the ecu, but i cant seem to find it, theres not exactly a "rpm output to tach" slot on the pin outs, in the reference section....


    so, my question is, which pin is the out put?

    and, does the signal from the distributor go to the ecu, then the tach, or just straight to the tach?

    I'm not sure on the routing, but I'd guess that the wire goes to the ECU first. Just a guess.

    What I do know is that you tap into the tach wire at the distributor. It's probably the simplest solution. On my car I believe it was a blue wire.
