    Behind the passenger side kick panel in the ECU compartment there's an accessory harness that has an orange wire with a white stripe. Splice into this. O0

    I had a 5" shiftlite tach in one of my older mustangs. It's like a mustang right of passage, you'll own only one cause you'll get tired of that gawdy thing on your dash and how much it makes you look like a ricer.
