Tell her to change up when the scream of the engine stops increasing, or little bumps appear in a line in the hood, whichever is earlier .

Some simple tach pickups can be wrapped around the HT lead; setting the tach to the number of cylinders manipulates the pulses appropriately to give you engine speed. THis is a good way to get a tach fitted without cutting into wiring, although I don't know how effective it is.

Question Installing a tach in a '94 Justy

My girlfriend drives a '94 Justy GL. It's only the 2WD model, but it's still a great little car. It has a 5 speed, but no tach, only a shift light. She would like a tach so she can monitor the engine speed (obviously).
Are there any die hard Subaru guys or girls that would have any advice on where I'd hook one up? I've got everything worked out except where to hook up the wire that reads the rpms.
Any help would be great!

I would use a simple aftermarket tach, like a Sunpro or something like that. I think the problem is that most tachs only have adjustments for 4, 6, or 8 cylinder applications. Isn't the Justy a three cylinder? So you might have to do a little work to find a tach that will work. Maybe the auto parts store has an applications guide and can tell you which one will work with the car. Most of those tachs will attach to the coil wire or the number 1 cylinder spark plug wire.
Good luck
