Im getting ready to install my autometer tach in my 93 Civic and I know pretty much what all the wires connect to. But running wires has never been my specialty. Whats the most logical way to run the wire for the the tach signal out the the shock tower?

Double check my skills:
Black - ground (bolt for the hood release)
Red - power (12v hot in fuse box)
White - lights (dimmer switch)
Green - Tach signal (Blue wire on drivers side shock tower)

sounds good


are you asking if those are good locations to get the wires? or literally how to run them through the dash/out the firewall?

uh, doesnt your car already have a tach? you could just tee off the cluster. since you would just tee it off at the dizzy anyways. its the same wire:beer:
