I think the tach adapter is going to be your best route; MSD Tach Pickup. Besides there is no cutting or splicing and should hook to any of the coil trigger wires. Cutting and splicing could cause a voltage drop at the coil causing more problems.

Shift light? Isn't that what the red line is for? :)

I couldn't agree more and the light would get way more accurate reading this way as well.

Makes it so nice to not have to look down when it comes time to shift, just wait for the blinding light to come on. :D

Have you seen the Raptor dual mode light? It is all self contained and can be fully programmed. The dual mode lets you set a launch rpm, then as soon as it senses vehicle speed it switches to shift mode.
