nope you dont have to buy an adapter... the tach signal wire i previously referred to gives the appropriate reading. take a look at the wire bundle coming out of the pcm in the back of the engine compartment. i'm pretty sure the tan/yellow wire is in that bundle. (thats where i tapped into it)

Yup. The PCM drives the factory tach and that tach signal also works on aftermarket tachs. I don't have a 2000 wiring manual yet but 1997 and 2001~2005 Rangers are all tan/yellow.
