located in your gigantic signature.

please resize that my friend.


as far as the wires. you will have to look for them in your ignition harness and the tach in your engine.

tie the hot to your fuse block, ground where you can, white "can" go to the light fuse, and the green, if you look at your distributer cap right next to the batt. plug there is one that should say tach (assuming the car has the original type HEI).

it will come with directions
