          Great for 99 and up.

          There is no need to purchase this box for an auto meter tach unless you have a 99 mustang I called autometer and they instructed me to tap off orange and white wire from the ecm pin 48 or you can also tap off of tan n white number 8 tach feed behind the dash.

          Autometer tach adaptor

          I must say this product is great, i have a broken arm at this time so i walked my 18 year old son through the install and he did the soldering and taping Like a glove, i would recommend it to anyone with a multiple coil application.

          Could use some updates installation instructions..

          I needed this for my window switch but to install it I had to use google to find which wore to tap in to for my 2014 mustang v6... I understand this product is pretty universal but some more guidance would have been appreciated. (It was the bigger solid purple wire in my engine harness) overall this product is pretty nice and it does exactly what I needed it to.

          This Product was easy to install to make my Tachometer work

          I looked up directions online. Mounted the tachometer I had on the driver side Pillar. Ran the wire down under dash then into engine bay wired up the Tachometer adapter neatly under the hood. Connected the wiring correctly and to my lights, Tachometer works great with the tachometer adapter. I didn't think it would be that easy but a little time and the Videos online at American Muscle and easy directions and patients. Americana Muscle online Videos and Price specials and my 06 is looking awesome. My car was a daily driver and now its a head turner. With parts from American Muscle,Thanks, American Muscle.

          Great product!!!!

          I was hooking up my shift light, and I ran into a problem. I had no where to hook up my tach wire so I was told I needed a tach adapter. I got the Auto Meter from America Muscle and it worked GREAT. Light comes on exactly where I set the rpm, no lacking or missing, dead on point all the time.. With the instructions it came with, made it really easy to install. And it's really small so you have enough room to install under hood or I install it under the dash, perect fit.. This is my third purchase from American Muscle and I see many more to come..

          Does what I need

          the instructions were simple. the installation took less than 30 min. My only problem was finding the best place to mount my shift light. The one thing I did not use was the wire connecting parts that came with it. I used a wiring kit from another store that I would recommend anyone do. it just made it easy. I also used about three washers per bolt when mounting it under the hood.

          1998 GT 4.6...Use the 99-04 diagram...

          Although the instructions do not include the 98 in installation diagram. Just use the 99-04 directions. After an few hours of hair pulling (to which I can't afford...lol) I went with the PIN method instead of the coil to which you have to pull from BOTH (also not in instructions) I only got half the signal. PIN is the way to go, faster and simpler.

          Auto meter tach adapter for my 97 gt

          Wow I though I was gonna have a hard time because I'm not so great with wiring but I was completely shocked it was so easy and when I say easy I mean easy all i did was put box up on the firewall and it is small and doesn't take up a lot of room find a ground find the correct pin for your tach signal wire from your car cut it in half tie the red wire in to the box with the pin the red and green to the other half going to the firewall side and then the grey wire to your tachs signal wire and your in business this adapter is the best bang for the buck and is needed if your gonna run a tach and have coil packs
