Dont hold me to it but pretty sure you need a tach adapter see here:

Re: BA XR8 Aftermarket thaco

Backnblack, The BA falcons do not have an output to allow you to connect an external tacho to the car, and due to the coil per plug setup, you will need an adapter. There are a few different brands available, but they are > $150, + the price of the tacho, it can be an expensive excersise.

There is a shift alert unit available, which gives you an audible shift alert (beeping), a shift light output and also a second auxillary output that is triggered by RPM >>>HERE<<<
