Why do you NEED a tach?... going to enter the local races?

SELL the damn thing to a kid... they seem to need them

You have not known that for years, why start now?
What are you going to do different if you do know?

My car has one, but if it dint have one there'd be a big empty spot on the dash...
so...they put one in there... but again, what good is it?... tells me useless info...

Mine tells me when I've got to 7,250 rpm that its time to change gears - because there's some nasty harmonics that come into play at 7,600 rpm that can create very expensive problems

most likely picks up off your alternator, though surely the installation book will tell you.
Mine picks up with a magnetic plug thing on the flywheel.
