The tach signal is on TAN/Yellow and it goes from the PCM to the instrument cluster. You will probably also need keyed power (RED/yellow), chassis ground (BLACK/yellow) and illumination (LIGHT BLUE/Red). You can pick up all four behind the cluster.
Aftermarket tachs are often universal and need to be set for 4, 6 or 8 cylinders. Check the instructions.
