Quick question has anyone fitted an after market rev counter so not a si or rs turbo one, if so have people got pics & the main thing does anyone know how to wire one in i've never done it on a car with a coil pack only one with a coil so you just wire it to the coil, I've been told that the wire you would normally wire to the coil you just wire to the live of the coil pack is this true ?

Thanks Ben

The guys over on fiestaturbo might be the best people to ask - many of them will have experience of doing this over the years I expect.

Alternatively, check out this page and it might give you a slight insight in what to do http://www.fiestaguides.co.uk/content/interior.html

The first problem that strikes me with that is the Zetec uses a Wasted Spark setup so actually has two coils.

Not sure if you would then get a reading of half the RPM as the coil only fires every fourth rotation not every second one if you get what I mean?
