what input do the shift light and tacho require? i think your going to find that you'll need a convertor to convet it to a square wave signal.

shiftkits.com.au make one its about 150 buck i believe

pm you email and i'll send the the addy of another forum that has wiring diagrams.

Re: rev n speed wires in BA XR6T

Speed signal and engine RPM are transmitted by the CAN bus, that is a digital message picked up by the various modules. You may have difficulty converting these messages. Be careful if you try to pick up RPM signal from ignition coils as they have low side drivers in the PCM. The drivers have transistors which switch off the current flow to coil, so if you go adding extra wires you may inadvertently give the the current an easier path to follow and not allow a magnetic field to build and collapse (hence causing misfire). Hope this helps
